You are going to be very sorely dissappointed. Look at the market trend. It's a no-brainer.

Come November, all the original Vonage investors will dump stock, mark my words. This was an exit that went seriously wrong. Vonage never had any infrastructure and so far have failed to obtain any. They no longer have the financial resources to rectify that.

They are in a totally untenable position.

A lot of people however don't like Vonage and do change their service. 2.11% of customers cancel each month. That's 25.32% a year. The figure (the churn rate) would be even higher, but it does not include those who cancel in the first month.

Also, Citibank, which as co-lead underwriter of the IPO knows Vonage's business better than any of us, thinks this number went up in the second quarter.



Yeah,but we don't know how many new subscribers are coming on board.

I can just give my experience. I could not be more happy with my service.

I see subscribers being over 5MM in 5 years (conservatively). Keep an eye out for the next new subscriber posting.

Vonage is THE leader in Voip and Voip is the wave of the future. If the traditional phone companies and cable companies could of got rid of Vonage they would have by now, not that they have tried. Buy low, Sell High. Up UP and Away Baby!

A recent example is XM Satellite Radio. Beat their competition, Sirius Satellite Radio, to market by a year. Followed a similar branding strategy by saturating the market with advertising. Now their stock is down, they have financial problems and management problems. Sirius is adding subscribers at double the rate that XM is. At their current pace, XM will loose it's lead by 2nd quarter of 2007.

Being first does not always mean you're going to last. The major telcos don't consider Vonage a threat. They are content to wait it out and let Vonage implode while they build out their networks to allow them to expand beyond the low margins of local & long distance phone service.

Interesting analogy.

I think satelite radio has a natural limit though. It had fast growth when it was selling to autombile listeners, but now i don't see growth expanding that much.

If you don't drive an hour to work everyday, you may not care about paying for radio.

Voip by contrast could sign up everybody that has broadband. That could easily be half the country.

The more likely contrast is that every broadband supplier signs up it's customers for Voip by bundling it in to existing services and other value adds. Internet radio, video on demand etc all immediately spring to mind as the large telcos are already working on such bundled systems.

I used Comcast regular phone service for years and paid over $70.00 per month for instate digital cable calling, . When Vonage came along, I jumped. 27.00/mo including tax. In response Comcast comes along with a Voip Service for 39.00/mo plus tax, for the first six months, without many of the Vonage features, and than it goes up to ?. I would not go back to Comncast, and it would take a lot for me to leave Vonage. Many of us are fed up with the traditional phone companies who took and are still takeing advantage of us. Cable companies do have a competitive advantage to those customers who use their cable for television, and not broadband. Most of us will not soon forget the frustration cost with traditional and cable telephone companies, and let our friends and relatives know about Vonage. Watch out for the new subscription report from Vonage. I'm sure they will go to the next step of profitability when they gain their market share.

I don't think there's any doubt that Vonage will attain a large chunk of the market share of pure voice supply. The real question is how big that market turns out to be compared to the bundle market with broadband, video and voice coming down a single pipe from a single supplier.

If the voice element is bundled for "free" like email, as is looking most likely (the real profit is in video - customer perception of voice is that it can be done for free if you and most people that you speak to have broadband) then that market will be close to non-existent.

Many of us still call people, especially the elderly, who do not have broadband. With Vonage, we keep our old phones and phone numbers, and can call any phone in the US free, as well as non cell phone numbers in Europe free. Our computers do not have to be on. I do not believe that the type of computer internet calling that you are speaking of would affect the Vonage Market much. We have five cell phones in this house. I set Vonage up to ring through to my cell phone automatically in the event of a power outage. (Call forwarding is free, along with repeat calling, caller ID with name, block numbers, 911, caller id block\, call return, 3-way calling, and more. Will all this be included free? I'm paying about 27./mo, which includes tax, and control the account online. Will all this be included free?

I can't say that all those features WILL be free, but they may be. The point is that the profit is in the network, not the calls. Vonage has no network. Once the network owners reach a point in their build out and consolidation that the profitable services are being delivered, i.e. data and video, voice will just become a free feature and there will be no market left to support a pure play Voip provider such as Vonage.

The real question is why should enhanced features be free? Vonage gives them "free" because they charge for calling. If calling is free would you complain about having to pay a couple dollars for advanced features? If I'm not paying for calls, it wouldn't bother me to pay $5 for voice mail.

BTW: If you recall the Telco networks have built in power backup and redundancies that are generally not impacted by local power outages. Cable providers are working to build similar power backups into their next generation systems.
