 Vonage Premium Unlimited: Say Hello To VoIP

Vonage In Print News

Say Hello To VoIP

April 20, 2005

By Russell Shaw

VoIP isn't just a bunch of talk-we put out the call to 5 services that are changing the way we reach out and touch someone.

For the last couple of years, I have been writing about-but more importantly using-VoIP phones. VoIP is the common acronym for voice over Internet Protocol, a type of technology that makes it possible for you to make and receive telephone calls over the Internet rather than through your standard phone company landline connection.

If you're just hearing about VoIP for the first time, it may be easy for you to dismiss both the technology and its communications value for you. It's really no different then when cell phones first hit the scene. Seems like that turned out pretty well (although it really depends on how you look at it). In fact, Internet-based calling has actually been around for more than 10 years, but the initial services were undependable at best, and snap-crackle-pop-with emphasis on the crackle-almost as a matter of course. And to make calls between computers meant both parties needed a PC microphone as well as the same brand of phone software.

VoIP has changed everything. The quality is unsurpassed, and about as good as those placed through traditional phone wires. In VoIP, phone calls are routed over your high-speed cable or DSL (digital subscriber line) connection. With few exceptions (read about soft phones on pg. 58), you talk over your regular phone, which is hooked up to a PC. A broadband router, most of which cost less than $100, is attached to your PC as well.

We won't get too technical on you here, but just so you know, the "Internet protocol" reference in VoIP describes the way in which packets (small groups of bits and bytes) are sent and received over the Internet. This packet transfer happens when you download a Web page or send and receive emails. The process also occurs with calls you make over the Internet, which are translated into packets of data and then reinterpreted back to sounds (and in some cases, video too) at your recipient's PC.

 Vonage Exec Tells Congress: Police The Big Telecoms

Vonage In Print News

Merger Critics Seek Telecom Regulation
Big Firms Need Policing, Congress Told

April 20, 2005

By Yuki Noguchi

Critics of consolidation in the telecommunications industry warned members of Congress that specific remedies would be necessary to ensure consumers are not harmed by a series of recently proposed mergers.

The proposed acquisitions of AT&T Corp. by SBC Communications Inc. and MCI Inc. by Verizon Communications Inc. raise questions about how smaller players will be able to compete, they told the Senate Judiciary subcommittee on antitrust, competition policy and consumer rights in a hearing yesterday.

The mega-companies could, among other things, drive up costs by requiring customers to buy multiple services bundled together, even if consumers don't want them, Consumers Union senior director Gene Kimmelman said.

Smaller providers are concerned about getting access to the larger companies' Internet and phone networks and getting a good connection over those lines. An executive with Vonage Holdings Corp., a national provider of Internet phone service, told members of Congress that regulators must police the larger phone companies, which might otherwise block companies such as Vonage from transmitting their own calls or connecting to the 911 emergency calling system.

"These mergers cannot be approved without conditions guaranteeing customers with Internet phones direct access to 911" as well as the public telephone network, said Jeffrey Citron, chief executive of New Jersey-based Vonage.

 Vonage Plays A Role In The New Telephony Upheaval

Vonage In Print News

The New Telephony: A New Alphabet Soup Spells Industry Upheaval

April 19, 2005

By Bruce Meyerson

What do you get when you combine Voice over Internet telephony, Wi-Fi wireless access and cell phones?

Aside from an acronym-induced headache, you get yet another new telephone technology with the potential to shake an industry already whipsawed by tectonic change.

That may sound a tad dramatic, especially coming from a business known for tall predictions. Skeptics say it remains entirely unclear how and when VoIP, or Voice-over-Internet-Protocol phone service, will intertwine with cell phones and wireless Internet access - or whether any part of the business will suffer as a result.

And yet the appeal is obvious.

Imagine how nice it would be if you're talking on a cell phone when you arrive at home or the office and the call doesn't cut off or turn fuzzy when you step inside.

Instead, the call passes without interruption from the cellular network to the wireless Internet signal inside the building, as imperceptible to the user as when a call gets passed from one cell tower to the next.

Would that be the magic bullet that persuades more people to discard their old-fangled phone lines and go all-cellular? For those who've already replaced their regular phone service with VoIP, would there be less of a reason to keep two phone numbers if a cell can pull double duty?

Opinions vary, of course. At this point, the pros can't even agree on what to call this technological mixture, with possible names ranging from VoWF and Vi-Fi to bigger mouthfuls like wVoIP, VoWiFi and VoWLAN.

 California Abandons Vonage; VoIP Regulation Fight

Vonage In Print News

California Abandons VoIP Fight

April 18, 2005

By Erika Morphy

The California Public Utilities Commission has become the latest state agency to abandon regulation efforts for VoIP services and equipment.

The agency has reportedly voted to withdraw from the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals its appeal of an FCC ruling made last November that prohibited states from regulating Internet phone services.

The states have eyed VoIP with longing, given its potential for tax revenues. Incumbent telephony carriers also have been resentful of states' inability to regulate competing VoIP carriers, arguing that VoIP companies provide phone-like service and should be regulated as a phone company.

However, the Federal Communications Commission took the opposite stance in its November ruling: VoIP is an information service -- not a telecom service -- and is to be treated as an ISP.

Not Alone

California was not the first state to challenge this view.
Last year, the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission made and then lost essentially the same argument when it claimed it had the right to regulate Vonage, a leading provider of VoIP service to consumers.

McLean, Virginia, April 19, 2005 —, a leading provider of wireless, Web-enabled security system technology, today announced a marketing alliance with Vonage Holdings Corporation, North America’s leading broadband telephony company, to address the growing need for Voice-over-IP (VoIP)-compatible security systems for residential and commercial VoIP customers.

Monitored security systems which require traditional phone service have prevented some VoIP customers from canceling their traditional phone service and recognizing the full economic benefits of VoIP telephone service.’s long range wireless solution provides VoIP customers reliable security event signaling that is not dependent on their phone line.

 Cal. PUC withdrawing appeal of FCC VoIP Ruling

Vonage In Print News


April 18, 2005

By Staff

As expected, the Cal. PUC is withdrawing an appeal of the FCC Vonage decision preempting state regulation of VoIP services, signaling PUC acceptance of the FCC action. The move reflected a decision made during the closed litigation part of the April 7 PUC meeting. The Cal. PUC was the first state to appeal the FCC order, leading court officials to consolidate all other state appeals into one case at the 9th U.S. Court of Appeals, San Francisco. The PUC's 3-1 decision to withdraw its appeal may lead other parties to move that the case be relocated to another federal circuit.

PUC Pres. Michael Peevey said he voted to drop the appeal because it's "a loser issue." He said VoIP is "obviously" an interstate service. He said he wanted the PUC to address telecom technology changes through more productive avenues.

 Vonage Review: The UTStarcom F1000, Vonage’s WiFi Phone

Vonage In Print News

Review Of The UTStarcom F1000, Vonage’s First WiFi Phone

April 15, 2005

By Peter Rojas

It’s been almost a year and a half since we heard the first rumblings about this, but we finally got to spend a few days with the UTStarcom F1000, Vonage’s long-awaited WiFi phone. Is it everything we were waiting for? Well, not exactly, but as a proof-of-concept we definitely like where they’re going with this. Read on for our impressions.


First off, the handset itself has all the cutting edge styling of a late Nineties Nokia and if you’re the type that’s embarrassed to pull anything but the latest Sony Ericsson or Motorola out of your pocket (it’s ok to fess to this!), you might feel a little “weird” using the UTStarcom F1000 in public. Otherwise, the phone will remind you of a vintage cellphone in more ways than one—if the design doesn’t do it, perhaps the small, grayscale LCD or old school interface will do the trick.

[Note: Vonage made it very clear to us before they sent us the handset that the F1000 is in beta, so keep that in mind as you read this.]

 CA PUC Gives Up VOIP Fight

PUC Gives Up Fight Over VOIP

April 15, 2005

By James S. Granelli

State regulators have reversed themselves on broadband telephone calling and ceded oversight to the federal government — a move that critics fear will leave California customers with little recourse for poor or faulty service.

The state Public Utilities Commission voted 3 to 1 behind closed doors late last week to pull out of its appeal of a Federal Communications Commission rule designating so-called voice over Internet protocol as an interstate service beyond state control.

California's was the first of several state utility commissions to appeal the FCC order, leading to the combining of the cases in the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco. Its decision to withdraw is likely to cause delays and a move to another circuit.

The largely unregulated VOIP technology sends voice, data and video in packets like e-mail over high-speed, or broadband, lines. In addition to start-ups such as Vonage Holdings Corp., big phone companies use VOIP to power parts of their own networks.

In reversing its decision of five months ago, the PUC also voted to file papers supporting the FCC's rule.
