 Vonage Raising $200M In Private Securities

Vonage In Print News

Vonage Holdings Corp., The Internet Telephone Company, Will Raise $200 Million In Funding Through A Private Sale Of Securities

May 5, 2005

By Staff

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Vonage Holdings Corp., the Internet telephone company, will raise $200 million in funding through a private sale of securities, according to a filing with U.S. market regulators.

Vonage, which has about 500,000 Internet telephone lines, will sell the convertible securities to 22 investors, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission filing said.

The sale brings the total venture capital raised by privately-held Vonage to $408 million. In March, Vonage said it had about $100 million on hand. By renting network resources, Vonage has kept its capital costs low, spending much of its free cash flow on marketing to attract new users.

The company declined to comment on the filing.

The VoIP Provider Files With The SEC For A Private Sale Of Securities

May 5, 2005

By Katie Fehnrenbacher and Reuters

Vonage will raise $200 million by privately selling securities to 22 investors, according to a filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

The recent funds will bring Vonage’s total funding to $408 million and help the company continue to add customers to its 600,000-subscriber base.

The Internet phone company is the largest independent VoIP provider, and has been adding subscribers at a heated rate.

With less resources than giants in the cable and telecommunications industries, the company has been beating out companies like Comcast and Verizon to offer VoIP services.

Because Vonage doesn’t own networks and rents access, capital costs are low, and the company can spend heavily on marketing. Vonage spends anywhere from $150 to $200 in marketing costs to acquire each customer, bringing the current total cash to create the brand to $120 million.

The company has also been investing in enabling access to emergency services and has recently begun to make deals with RBOCs like Verizon and Bell South. Vonage says it intends to spend $10 million to get emergency service access up and running, along with $1 million per month to keep the services operating.

 Vonage Signs With Verizon For VoIP E 911

Vonage In Print News

Vonage Contracts Verizon For E9-1-1 Service

May 4, 2005

By Staff

Verizon is the first ILEC to work closely with any nomadic VoIP service to ensure emergency calling keeps pace with VoIP technology.

“Verizon is a responsible steward of the E9-1-1 public trust, through their foresight Vonage is able to implement an E9-1-1 solution that will serve all customers,” said Jeffrey A. Citron, Vonage’s CEO. “Unlike other ILECs, Verizon has not recommended Vonage use a CLEC for call delivery, as they recognize the significant limitations of this solution, as it does not accommodate for mobile customers or VoIP users on non-local phone numbers. It is important that all Vonage customers can use this solution, those with native phone numbers and those who chose phone numbers from other areas.”

 Vonage Calls To Verizon's 911 Will Cost $10 Million

Vonage Calls Verizon's 911

May 5, 2005

By Rhonda Ascierto

Vonage said it plans to spend more than $10m by the end of the year to set up a 911 service for its New York City-based VoIP users using Verizon's wireless and wireline E 911 network. Vonage will pay at least $1m per month for the service on an ongoing basis, the company said.

And a similar deal with Qwest Communications International Inc is likely within the next several weeks, Vonage told ComputerWire.

The agreements reveal Vonage's mettle in becoming a primary phone service for its VoIP users, amid growing VoIP competition from networks, including Verizon, and other companies.

Under the deal, when a Vonage customer calls 911 within Verizon's territory, emergency services staff will receive the caller's physical location and callback number, similar to the way landline and mobile calls are handled.

Historically, this information for VoIP callers was not sent to 911 services. When Vonage customers opted in for its existing 911 service, their calls were not always routed to appropriate emergency personnel.

The deal means Vonage can offer customers a more comparable service to traditional phone services than before. It also will help mitigate bad press surrounding two lawsuits slapped on Vonage in recent weeks by two US state attorney generals that accuse it of "misleading customers" about the limits of its existing 911 service. The suits were spurred by troubling reports of some Vonage user's 911 calls being sent to call centers or voicemail.

Internet Phones Arrive At Home (And Some Need No Computer)

May 5, 2005

By Daniel Terdiman



A few years ago, a buzz began spreading about Internet telephony, a technology allowing telephone conversations to be made across the Internet rather than exclusively over regular phone lines.

Such calls, made at little or no expense to the caller, were portrayed as a threat to the established phone companies. But the vision exceeded the actual experience, which early users likened to listening through mud.

More recently, Internet phone technology - also known as voice over Internet protocol, or VoIP - made inroads into businesses using heavy-duty equipment from companies like Cisco.

Now, thanks to providers like Vonage and others, it has found its way into the home. The service is sometimes choppy, but costs are low and quality is satisfactory for routine calls. Moreover, Internet protocol lends itself to inexpensive videoconferencing as well, useful for informal video chats between friends or business associates.

For those with high-speed connections, Internet calling and videoconferencing are finally taking off. And as their use grows, so does the selection of tools. The latest Apple operating system, released last week, incorporates improved tools for online video chatting. And this week a new offering from Motorola, the Ojo, offers Internet picture-phone ability without a computer.

 Vonage Commits $10M In E911 Infrastructure

Vonage In Print News

Vonage’s $10-Million 911 Plan

May 4, 2005

By Katie Fehrenbacher

Vonage will spend $10 million to start providing 911-style services for its customers, partly by using Verizon’s infrastructure to connect callers with emergency dispatchers, the VoIP provider announced Wednesday.

The investment is Vonage’s first substantial attempt to close the company’s emergency calling gap. The cash is a relatively low price to address a shortcoming that has become a publicity nightmare for the company, which has spent tens of millions of dollars to market VoIP service.

Vonage calls the investment a major undertaking, describing the plan as “the first domino to fall” in a plan to offer emergency services nationwide. Vonage and Verizon will implement the system over the next six months.

For now, the Verizon contract includes emergency service access in Verizon’s footprint. A Vonage call will be routed over the Verizon network to connect to the Public Safety Answering Point, or PSAP. The 911 operator is then able

The $10 million includes plans with three other regional bell operating companies, or RBOCs, but covers only the service and operational costs. Vonage has been criticized for not figuring out ways to work with the network owners to collaborate on emergency services.

Because Vonage, along with the majority of startup VoIP providers, doesn’t own the network over which it runs services, companies like Verizon want to charge when companies piggyback onto their networks.

But $10 million is a relatively easy figure for the company to swallow. Vonage CEO Jeffrey Citron has said that the company spends between $150 to $200 in marketing costs per customer. With over 600,000 customers, that’s up to $120 million in branding to secure its subscribers.

Now that Verizon has decided on an appropriate price point to loan VoIP companies network use, the other carriers might follow suit. Vonage says the company is in talks with SBC over a similar plan.

 The Economics Of VoIP 911 Emergency Services

The Economics Of Emergency Services

May 2, 2005

By Johna Till Johnson

My recent column on the necessity of universal 911 services definitely hit a hot button. Many thanks to those who wrote to share their views.

A few clarifications: First, I provided some inaccurate information regarding Vonage's 911 capabilities. Per Vonage's current Web site, users don't have to pay extra for 911: Even the $14.99 basic rate includes 911 capabilities, though in all cases users must activate their 911 features themselves (it's not built-in). My apologies for the error.

Second, it's clear from the responses that there's a lot of FUD around the issue of 911 and E911 services. Let's cut to the chase: The real issue, as I noted in the previous column, is that enabling VoIP with E911 capabilities costs money - and nobody's willing to belly up to the bar to pay. Or more precisely, nobody's yet taken a hard look at how funding models for public services should evolve in a world where voice (not just VoIP) is virtually free.
