Qwest To Test VoIP

Vonage In Print News

December 2, 2003

By Leslie Brooks Suzukamo

Two hundred Twin Cities-area broadband Internet customers will get an early Christmas gift from Qwest Communications International this month - a free Web-based telephone service that can make long-distance calls as cheap as local ones, with a free Internet phone to boot.

The service is the first phase of a plan by the Denver-based Baby Bell to roll out residential Internet-based telephone service across its 14-state region. Minnesota is the trial balloon because of a Minneapolis federal judge's October decision to declare these so-called voice over Internet Protocol telephone services - or Voip - off-limits to state regulators.

That decision left the state open for tiny Internet companies to challenge goliaths like Qwest by offering phone service without having to play by the same rules as the phone companies. One of them, Vonage, an Edison, N.J.-based service, actually spurred the judge's ruling by successfully suing the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission to avoid being regulated like a phone company. Vonage has won 75,000 customers nationwide and 500 in Minnesota.

Internet telephone service isn't regulated by the federal government either, and on Monday the Federal Communications Commission held a workshop in Washington, D.C., to consider future oversight of the increasingly popular broadband service.

The three-member Republican FCC majority echoed chairman Michael Powell's calls for minimal, if any, regulation.
"Regulatory medicine can be poison to an otherwise healthy technology," Powell said at the meeting. "No regulator, federal or state, should tread in the area without compelling justification to do so."

But Democrat Commissioner Michael Copps disagreed, saying, "We don't come to this issue early and it is increasingly apparent that action is needed soon."
While helping upstarts like Vonage, the lack of regulation also helps the big players like Qwest.

"Today's comments by FCC chairman Powell reinforce our position to begin a phased deployment of Voip services to customers," Qwest said Monday in a statement.
Qwest has already chosen its 200 test customers in the Twin Cities area.

All have high-speed Internet connections through digital telephone lines or cable and will receive special handsets that connect directly to their broadband connection, Qwest spokeswoman Clare Maledon said.

Qwest is offering the service free at first because it wants the customers to give feedback on the features they like and dislike and which they find more helpful, Maledon said.

Qwest didn't say how much it is investing in the project.
Other Baby Bells like Verizon Communications, SBC Communications and BellSouth also have announced plans to offer their own flavors of Internet telephone service next year for businesses and residences. Qwest is the first to dive into residential service and offers business Voip as well.

Qwest has not decided what it will charge for the service once it is fully deployed. Vonage, sensing the competition from the Bells, on Monday unveiled a cut-rate $15 a month service for 500 minutes of domestic local and long distance calling.

"We think we can easily compete with these future competitors," Vonage CEO Jeffrey Citron said Monday in a conference call after the 4-hour FCC hearing.
Qwest will begin its Minnesota voice over Internet Protocol service within two weeks, and it anticipates it will begin rolling out the service to other states within the first half of 2004, Maledon said.
