 Vonage Commercials - The 'Woo Hoo' Grows On You

Vonage In Print News

On The Spot

March 26, 2005

By Monty Phan

Newsday's weekly look at commercials that, as they say on Madison Avenue, cut through the clutter.

Vonage

Arnold Worldwide, Boston

OK, OK, we give in. You've broken us, Vonage, with those commercials of yours. Yes, the ones where the guy sings "woo hoo, woo hoo hoo, woo hoo, woo hoo hoo" over and over. And over. And. Over.

We used to mute the television when they came on, because there's a brief lead-up before the guy starts singing, and anyone quick with the remote can silence the TV before those "woo hoo's" begin. But we couldn't always be within striking distance of the remote - it's not like we keep it tethered to our wrist, after all - and so sometimes we couldn't mute the TV and were forced to endure those incessant "woo hoo's."

Then, slowly, over time, we stopped muting it. Shamefully, we even started to sing along - but in a mocking way, mind you. However, even that defiance was difficult to maintain, and we began to sing "Woo Hoo" - by the band the 5.6.7.8.'s - even when the commercial wasn't on. The baby liked it, we rationalized.

 VoIP Expansion: Vonage Expects To Hire 1,000 Workers

Vonage In Print News

Holmdel Home: For Internet Phone Pioneer
Expansion: Expects To Hire 1,000 Workers


March 25, 2005

By David P. Willis

Vonage Holdings Corp., the nation's largest Internet telephone company, expects to move its offices to Holmdel, where it hopes to employ about 2,000 workers by the end of the year, a company spokesman said.

The move would make Vonage one of the Shore's largest employers.

The company, which now has 1,000 employees, has outgrown its offices on Route 27 in Edison, Vonage spokesman Jamie Serino said. "We are working right on top of each other," he said.

The company is "close" to signing a lease for an office building in Holmdel, Serino said. He would not identify the location, but he said it would have space for another 1,000 employees the company expects to hire this year.

Joseph Sarno, senior director at Cushman & Wakefield of New Jersey, believes Vonage will move into the former Prudential Property & Casualty Insurance Co. building, a two-story 358,932-square-foot office building on 88 acres on Route 520.

 McCaw's Clearwire Silently Blocks Competitive VoIP

Vonage In Print News

Clearwire Blocks Competitive Voice Offering

March 25, 2005

By Nancy Gohring

One Vonage customer says that Clearwire is blocking the voice over IP service: This is clearly a defensive move by Clearwire but surely won’t do much as far as endearing itself to customers. Clearwire recently said that Bell Canada would supply voice services to Clearwire broadband wireless customers. Apparently Clearwire wants to ensure that its customers that want voice services buy the service from Clearwire and no one else. While it’s understandable, it won’t help Clearwire to promote its image as a champion of competitive providers.

The FCC recently ruled that Madison River Communications, a telephone and DSL provider, had to stop blocking Vonage and pay a fine for doing so previously.

Travel & Technology
What To Pack On Your Next Vacation


March 21, 2005

By Jim Carlton

Ah, the essentials of summer vacation: swimsuits, beach towels, sunglasses -- and enough gadgets to fill an electronics superstore.

These days, vacationers are stuffing their luggage with high-tech gear that makes it easier to entertain the kids, stay in touch with the office and find sights to see on the road. Technology is even creating handy new substitutes for some traditional travel items, like postcards and maps.

Mike Rogers, for example, says he rarely used to travel with much more than a Sony Discman. "Now I have an iPod, digital camera, laptop and the many accessories that go along with these items," says Mr. Rogers, a 24-year-old high-school teacher from New York City. "These things are literally changing what I'm carrying on my back."

Travel companies are scrambling to accommodate all the gadgetry. Several international air carriers are beginning to offer Wi-Fi wireless networking on their flights, and hotels targeting leisure travelers are adding the service.

The historic La Fonda hotel in Santa Fe, N.M., reports that Internet usage by its guests has doubled since it added Wi-Fi two years ago. Meanwhile, Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide Inc., based in White Plains, N.Y., is rolling out Wi-Fi networks at all of the company's 13 hotels in Hawaii.

"Connectivity is a part of today's lifestyle," says Starwood spokesman David Uchiyama in Honolulu, though he adds: "Now why people want all that accessibility at all times, sometimes I wonder."

One of the biggest reasons: Many people don't want to fall too far behind in their work. In a survey commissioned by trade magazine Mobile PC last year, 80% of respondents said that staying connected when they are away from their workplace makes their lives easier when they return.

Meanwhile, 64% of the 2,364 respondents said they used mobile technologies to communicate with colleagues when traveling for business or pleasure. "Catching up when you return home is painful," says Christopher Null, editor-in-chief of Mobile PC, in Brisbane, Calif. "I'd rather filter through 20 e-mails a few times a day than be faced with a crush of 600 e-mails all at once when I get home."

Here's a look at some of the ways travelers use technology while they're on vacation, and some of the gadgets they wouldn't leave home without.

VOIPing by the Pool

It wasn't that long ago that a vacation was truly an escape from work. Checking in with the office required expensive pay-phone or hotel calls, and if the office wanted to track you down, you had to tell them exactly how and where to do it. Those were the good old days.

Cellphones have gone a long way toward keeping travelers tied to work. Now a new technology lets you leave your phone at home and get the same convenience, often at a fraction of the cost.

Internet calling, known as VOIP (for voice over Internet protocol), carries calls over the Net instead of traditional telephone networks, reducing or eliminating long-distance charges. It also can turn any computer into a phone connection.

As chief executive of an electronic-security and printing firm in the Dominican Republic, Ramon Baez says he can't afford to miss many calls to his office in Santo Domingo.

So when he goes on vacation, he uses a VOIP service by Vonage Holdings Corp., of Edison, N.J., that converts his voice mail into audio files that he can check by e-mail.

 VoIP: End Of The Line For Phone Bills?

Vonage In Print News

End Of The Line For Phone Bills?

March 20, 2005

By Paul Durman

Dietra Breedon, an American living in London, likes to phone her mother in Newport, Virginia, a couple of times a day.

They can speak across the Atlantic as often or as long as they want, but since Breedon starting using a firm called Vonage, the cost will never be more than a monthly fee of £2.99.

“It helps the bank account,” she said. “My father’s happy and my husband’s happy.”

When The Sunday Times called Breedon on her London number last week, she was in South Africa, accompanying her husband on a business trip. But the call to her Mayfair home found her instantly, rerouted to a mobile phone thousands of miles away.

“You just called me on a British number and I’m in South Africa,” said Breedon. “How cool is that?”

Welcome to the wonders of internet telephony, or voice over internet protocol (VoIP) in industry jargon. Proponents claim it offers a tantalising mix of greatly reduced bills and sophisticated new services.

It could also mean the end of the traditional phone bill. If VoIP takes off, paying per-minute charges for individual calls will soon become a thing of the past. At most, customers will pay a monthly service charge — and with some providers even that will disappear.

'Wave Of The Future'
Businesses Invest In Telephone Service Via The Internet


March 20, 2005

By Margaret Jackson

Bob Klick estimates the new phone service Allard Klick & Co. bought from Front Range Internet Inc. saves his accounting firm up to $300 a month.

The Fort Collins company invested about $3,500 in new hardware, including 14 phones, for the Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) system - less than it would have spent on a traditional PBX system. But because the system uses an Internet connection to carry phone service, there are no long-distance charges.

The quality is as good or better than traditional providers, and small businesses have found they are able to get many features found in high-end phone systems with considerably less up-front capital expenses.

Features available include voice mail optionally sent to e-mail; call forwarding; Web-based call management; and Caller ID that lists all incoming and outgoing numbers.

"I had a sales guy who kept bugging me and I remembered his number and just didn't answer the phone any more," Klick said. "It's a great feature."

While VoIP has been around since the early 1990s, the technology has been slow to spread. The market, however, is changing.

Sales for traditional circuit-switched telephone systems are expected to drop by 30 percent in 2005 to $999 million, down from $1.4 billion in 2004, according to Gartner Inc., a Stamford, Conn.-based research firm.

There were over 1 million VoIP subscribers in the United States at the end of 2004, according to a report by Halpern Capital, a research, trading and corporate finance firm based in Aventura, Fla. Halpern estimates the number of subscribers will increase by about 32 percent to 1.43 million in the first quarter of this year. By 2008, Halpern projects there will be more than 16 million VoIP subscribers.

That's in keeping with the increase in customers Edison, N.J.-based Vonage is seeing. The company, founded in January 2001, brought its VoIP service to market in April 2002 and finished that year with 7,500 customers, said Mitchell Slepian, a spokesman for the company, which offers service in Fort Collins. By the end of 2003, the number of customers had grown to 75,000. In January this year, Vonage, the leading VoIP provider, had 400,000 customers and on March 7, it announced it had topped 500,000 customers.

 VoIP: Dangling Broadband From The Phone Stick

Dangling Broadband From The Phone Stick

March 19, 2005

By Matt Richtel

SAN FRANCISCO, March 18 - To gauge the potential consumer impact of the consolidation sweeping the telephone industry, look no further than the silver-toned plastic phone gathering dust on the desk in Justin Martikovic's studio apartment.

Mr. Martikovic, 30, a junior architect who relies on a cellphone for his normal calling, says he never uses the desk phone - but he pays $360 a year to keep it hooked up.

"I have to pay for a service I'm never using," he said.

He has no choice. His telephone company, SBC Communications, will not sell him high-speed Internet access unless he buys the phone service, too. That puts him in the same bind as many people around the country who want high-speed, or broadband, Internet access but no longer need a conventional telephone. Right now, their phone companies tend to have a "take it or leave it" attitude.

Consumers "are not forced to go with SBC," said Michael Coe, a company spokesman. "If they just want a broadband connection, I'd recommend they look around for people who can provide just a broadband connection."

The nation's other two largest phone companies, Verizon Communications and BellSouth, have similar policies: broadband service is available only as a bundle with phone service.

That means, even as high-speed Internet service has become one of the most quickly adopted technologies of the computer era, there are few options for the tens of millions of Americans trying to upgrade their dial-up connections.

 Wireless VoIP: VoWiFi Calling Shaking Up Communications

Wireless Internet Calling Shaking Up Communications

March 18, 2005

By Staff

NEW ORLEANS - Cell phones and Internet-based calling revolutionized the traditional phone call. WiFi cut the Internet's cord.

Now the three technologies are coming together, changing the rules of business communication and aiming at consumer wireless services and devices.

Cellular companies have taken notice and are moving to adopt the technology to expand their own offerings and keep an eye on a potential competitor, particularly for business customers.

"We're really at the pioneer stage," said Frank Hanzlik, managing director of the Wi-Fi(cq) Alliance, an Austin-based trade group whose members include Dell, Intel, Microsoft and Texas Instruments.

"The carriers are recognizing that voice over IP isn't going away and WiFi and hot spots are not going away," he said. "We're seeing a lot more awareness that WiFi and cellular together are really offering a very powerful combination."

That combination was an undercurrent running throughout CTIA Wireless 2005, the annual wireless industry convention held here last week by the Cellular Telecommunications and Internet Association.

At the show, many new "smart phones" _ cell phones with computer functions _ included WiFi for to allow e-mail and Web surfing. At least one handset was specifically geared toward allowing voice calls to roam between cellular and wireless Internet networks.

"You can start thinking about single phone number across anything that you do, with maybe charges that aren't so significant," said Ellen Daley, a Forrester Research analyst who focuses on the new calling technology. "The carrier fear is that now people roam into those WiFi spots, which they may or may not own, and suddenly they're not getting cellular charges."

The new technology goes by the unwieldy name Voice over WiFi, or VoWiFi; a mashed acronym formed from Voice over Internet Protocol, or VoIP, and the Wireless Fidelity standard for high-speed Web access that creates local networks in homes and businesses.

Voice over IP offers a lower-cost alternative to traditional local and long-distance service by converting voices into data that speeds over the Internet. For callers, the experience is typically no different from a traditional phone call except for added features such as voice mail delivered to an e-mail inbox.

Spurred by start-up firms like New Jersey-based Vonage and competition among major cable and telephone companies, the wired version of the technology has come into the consumer mainstream in the last couple of years.

 VoIP Helps You Receive All Your Calls

Receiving All Your Calls

March 15, 2005

By Staff

The Problem: You miss important phones calls when away from home.

The Solution: Now, you can automatically have homebound calls simultaneously ring your cellphone or your work phone. A number of carriers, mostly Internet phone providers, have recently started offering such routing services free or for a minimal fee.

Telephone companies that use VOIP technology like Vonage, Lingo and BroadVoice offer a service that allows you to have calls to your home always ring your other phones.

Vonage and Lingo include the feature free when you subscribe to their phone service, while BroadVoice charges $1.95 a month.

Meanwhile, AT&T's CallVantage broadband-telephone service includes Locate Me, a free feature that rings your various telephone numbers either sequentially or simultaneously before sending a call into voicemail.
