Hey guys!

I was listening to a plug for the free upgrade special they're doing this month (I'm sure you've got this message in your voicemail, too) and I noticed that the delightful speaker pronounced the service "Vah-nage"

Now that I replay it, it seems her name is Janet Vonage (I thought it was "Janet Vanich" .. but it makes sense now!)

Here I was, saying "Vo-nage" (you know, like "vodafone" .. but trendier) Silly me!

Well this is interesting...

Try a Google Search for the words "Vonage" and "pronounced".
Or click below.
http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&ie=UTF-8&q=vonage+pronounced&btnG=Google+Search

Evidently, there's a great deal of confusion over how to say "Vonage".

And who is this Janet Vonage lady, anyway? She's not listed as part of the "Leadership Team" on the corporate website.

Question Is she a low-profile/anonymous creator, like Coca-Cola's father, John Pemberton?

Question Is she a fictitious "brand" character, like Betty Crocker?


I see the makings for a new poll if this isn't resolved soon.

Ironically, I hate talking on the phone--for business matters, at least.


In fact, before I got Vonage, I was roughing it with a broadband connection and no phone number. But this started to irritate friends and family, so I finally broke down. You'll notice that my phone service is still secondary to my broadband access Wink

I always e-mail Vonage with questions, so before my System Announcement (the caps make it look portentious), I don't suppose I'd ever heard anyone pronounce it.

I think it would be funny if different service reps pronounced it differently when you called them.

I thought Vonage as in Phone. With the long O. That made since to me, cause it's a phone.

I don't get why people add a 't' and call it "Vontage". Those people are better off dead.
