PostPosted: Thu Aug 03, 2006 1:43 pm    Post subject: More pricing pressure from Comcast Reply with quote Back to top

Comcast in several markets now offers for $99 enhanced cable, high speed internet, and digital voice. Unlike Vonage, Comcast digital voice requires no messing around with software and routers. You simply keep your own equipment and get professional installation if you need it. And when something goes wrong, you don't get put on hold and bounced around by various Hindi-accented operators!

In other markets Comcast is offering digital voice for $27 a month for three months.

Despite not operating in as many markets, Comcast Digital Voice grew almost twice as fast, adding 307,000 new subscribers last quarter.

A promotional price $2 higher than Vonage's unlimited price? In addition that is before the higher taxes and fees....

So are you saying that Comcast is pressuring Vonage to raise prices?

Comcast is in a triple play price war with Verizon. This ultimately benefits Vonage because it will increase the number of broadband users.

Yes, Vonage is suffering from price competition (primarily 'pure' Voip outfits like VoiceWing and CallVantage). They dropped their prices previously. Your post title is misleading claiming more price pressure from Comcast.

I have Comcast

And I just got another line from Vonage this weekend. I currently have (2) 500 minute lines, one fax line, one soft phone line.

Using Comcast was never a consideration. They don't offer the same features and are still much more expensive.

People are willing to pay a small premium for a trusted and reliable local company they have been using for 10+ years over some random new company known for reliability problems and customer service nightmares.

Please note that these companies still signed up far more customers than Vonage last Q, despite having a smaller geographic base, and charging slightly more.

So what happens when the CableCos start charging less? They have been cutting prices for years. You think they are suddenly going to stop right now at current prices? If you do I have the stock in a company run by crooks and a few bridges to sell you.

What will happen to the cable companies when customers start converting their internet access to wireless (WIMAX)?

All of their phone customers are going to switch!

Won't even start to happen for 5+ years, long after Vonage has filed for bankruptcy (which will probably happen within 12 months).

Well that is faster than I expected, but 100 million by the end of 2008 is still only 1/3 of the country.

Also, why on earth would SPRINT, a telephone company, let Vonage, a competing telephone company, use its WiMax network.

More importantly, why would consumers, already paying for Sprint WiMax Service and already in posession of a WiMax phone, pay even more money to Vonage to use Vonage service on Sprint's network.

It again makes no sense. Perhaps why Vonage stock has dropped an average of 6% a week since the IPO.

It will depend a lot on how Sprint rolls out a WiMAX phone service. Vonage can easily add a WiMAX phone to its lineup, whether they could make one that works on Sprint's network is another story.

Will Sprint offer free calling to many cities in Europe?
Will Sprint offer virtual numbers in other countries (or virtual numbers at all)?
Will Sprint have its own 911 center for nomadic users?

But, the original poster was specifically addressing people who were replacing their home Internet service with Sprint WiMAX. If Sprint offers that product then Vonage makes a lot of sense. For home users the ability to have traditional handsets and fax machines is important. That will not necessarily be available with a WiMAX phone.

Could Sprint offer everything above? Yes. Will they? Probably not.

WIMAX only makes sense if you give the customer an open and free channel to the internet. Once a customer has that, then they can choose whichever phone service they want.

This also may open up another potential source of revenue for Vonage. .....Wireless internet phones!!!!!......

I would sign upimediately. My wireless phone bill is over $100 per month!!!
