Vonage Internet service has outage

By BRUCE MEYERSON
AP BUSINESS WRITER

NEW YORK -- Vonage, the leading Internet-based telephone service, suffered an outage on Friday which left about half of its 500,000 subscribers without phone service for about 45 minutes.

The outage was caused by a glitch with a software upgrade on Thursday night, said Brooke Schulz, a spokeswoman for Vonage Holdings Corp.

The problem struck at about 2:45 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, and Vonage stabilized the network with a software patch by 3:30 p.m.

"This was the first issue we've ever had related to software," Schulz said, adding that changes have now been implemented to prevent another such disruption.
however, as evidenced by the Vonage outage, the technology hasn't fully matured to the point where it can provide the nearly 100 percent reliability of traditional phone lines.

Vonage said about 50 percent of all inbound and outbound traffic was affected by Friday's disruption.

Schulz declined to describe the nature of Thursday's software upgrade, saying that Vonage performs software upgrades as often as once a week without issue.

Since when has the PSTN proven nearly 100 percent reliability? Furthermore, it seems to me that if nearly 100% reliability is the standard by which we judge the ability of our technology to be worthy of use, than we would never have invented the wheel.

Considering how much I'm saving comapred to having copper, I'll take that chance. Besides, when I had Bellsouth, it wasn't 100% reliable, either. Like the time that moron hit the utility pole drunk and took out phone service for 12 hours!

I love writing letters. Although it is Mr. Meyerson's job to upset us, I surely would like to write him a letter and explain a few thing to him.

What's your beef? He said Voip isn't 100% reliable yet, which gets pointed out here all the time ("VoIP isn't POTS, if you can't deal with it, go back to your landline"). Are you disputing the accuracy of his observation, or are you just irked that someone had the nerve to let that news escape this forum?

It's not like he insulted your momma...why the attitude? Talk about getting your panties in a wad!
