Telephone Values Can Pour In Through DSL

Telephone Values Can Pour In Through DSL

April 8, 2004

By Cheryl Currid

This may sound strange, but you could hire your cable company to be your telephone company today.

Or you could drop your voice lines and talk over your DSL broadband line.

Or you could get a new phone number with a New York or San Francisco area code that rings directly to your Houston home office.

And these services are available today.

Thanks to technology called Voice Over Internet Protocol, innovative companies are rewriting the rule book on what you can do with phone lines, cable TV, the power lines and even the thin air in your home. The services are new and sometimes have a few quirks, but if you are adventurous, want to be more efficient and would like to save money on monthly bills, read on.

I've just started testing a service from Vonage,, that gives me telephone service on my high-speed Internet connection. With rates starting as low as $14.95 a month, it comes with free voice mail, caller ID with name, call waiting, call forwarding, call transfer and three-way calling. There's free long-distance for 500 minutes per month to anywhere in the United States or Canada.

Additional services are available for low fees. These include unlimited nationwide long-distance, a phone number with any area code, virtual phone numbers, toll-free service and transferring your existing phone number to a new carrier.

The super-size small business package, which it calls the unlimited plan, costs only $49.95 a month, and Vonage throws in a free fax line.

Vonage's virtual numbers can be added to the connection for $5 a month. For example, if you have clients in New York, you could add a 716 area code number to your line in Houston. Your customer can then call you from any phone in that area code toll-free. Neat, huh?

Another advantage comes if you move. Because of the number portability laws, you can take your phone number with you and add it to your Vonage account. This makes it a lot easier on your customers, who might otherwise lose track after you switch.

Part of the Voice Over Internet Protocol magic comes from a Motorola's voice terminal that connects to your broadband service (cable modem or DSL line) and uses part of the bandwidth to make a phone line. The terminal has plug-ins for your broadband line and your phone lines. Setting up the voice terminal was a simple process with its well-documented instructions.

Once the wires are hooked up, the adapter self-configures and finds the Vonage servers. If there is a software update available, it downloads and installs automatically.
You can then pick up your telephone, hear a dial tone and dial anyone, anywhere. I must say, it was a little strange the first few times to pick up the phone.

In my case it was hooked to the cable modem on my RoadRunner service, and hear a dial tone. For testing, we hooked up a cordless phone system so we could have multiple extensions.

This is amazing technology. It boggles my mind to think that I can now sit with my cordless phone, use the thin air to communicate to the voice terminal that's hooked to the cable broadband connection, which turns my voice into ones and zeros. It then travels over the Internet to the Vonage server and transfers my voice digits back into a real voice so I can talk to any phone, anywhere, and have a clear connection.

Over the next few weeks I'll experiment with all the features. But, at first blush, this new low-cost communication system looks like a great tool for a home office.
