 Vonage Tops 500,000 VoIP Subscribers

Vonage Tops 500,000 Subscribers

March 9, 2005

By Staff

Vonage said that it has now topped 500,000 subscribers, with new subscribers signing up at a record pace. The VoIP provider said that new users are flocking in at a current rate of 15,000 per week, up 50% from the pace in the fourth quarter of last year. It said that it is now handling calls at the rate of 25 million per week.

If that pace holds up it is simple math to estimate that the company could hit the magical million subscriber number before the year’s out.

“In a very short time, we’ve proved that 2005 is the year of mass adoption for VoIP services, Vonage as the market bellwether has capitalized on this nascent trend,” said Vonage chairman and CEO in a prepared statement. “The exponential growth is real: there is no question as to whether VoIP or Vonage is here to stay.”

Separately Vonage said that it has selected Texas Instruments as its “preferred” provider of Voice over IP (VoIP) silicon and software. The pact is more of a marketing than a business deal, and simply “encourages VoIP equipment manufacturers to use TI’s VoIP silicon and software technology when developing products for use on Vonage’s broadband telephony network,” the two companies said.

VeriSign(R) NetDiscovery(TM) Services Selected by Vonage(r)

VeriSign's Solution Will Enable Vonage to Become CALEA Compliant by Q3 2005


SAN JOSE, Calif., Spring VON 2005, March 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ VeriSign, Inc. (Nasdaq: VRSN), the leading provider of intelligent infrastructure services for the Internet and telecommunications networks, and Vonage Holdings Corp., the leading provider of broadband phone services, today announced that Vonage has selected VeriSign NetDiscovery(TM) Services to help develop the capability for law enforcement to legally intercept calls on its Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP)-based digital phone services. Vonage is not presently subject to the requirements of the Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act (CALEA), but is voluntarily complying with its provisions through this relationship.

meeting CALEA compliance through a managed service model, significantly minimizing the capital and operational expenditure. By leveraging VeriSign's proven managed service model, once implemented, Vonage can continue to focus on growing their core business without diverting critical resources to non-revenue generating functions.

Vonage Passes 500,000 Subscriber Mark

March 8, 2005

By Carolyn Schuk

Vonage's customer base has crossed the 500,000 mark, the Edison NJ-based company announced today.

The company reports that it added more than 300,000 lines in 2004 and continues to add 15,000 subscribers a week in 2005 - a growth rate of 50 percent over last year.

Vonage believes that these numbers mean that the VoIP is achieving mainstream acceptance.

"As more and more consumers demand better value for their communications dollars, we get closer and closer to the tipping point of this industry," Citron said. "In a very short time, we've proved that 2005 is the year of mass adoption for VoIP services. Vonage as the market bellwether has capitalized on this nascent trend."

Vonage And Nuvio Say Telecoms And Cable Companies Degrade VoIP Signals

March 7, 2005

By Staff

Internet telephony firms praised Thursday's action by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to fine a small telecom for blocking Voice over Internet Protocol traffic, but said problems of keeping broadband networks open to all IP applications remain.

Over the last six months, both consumer VoIP provider Vonage and wholesaler Nuvio complained to the FCC about both telecom and cable broadband providers either blocking or degrading VoIP calls. In some cases, the providers offer their own VoIP service and in Vonage's and Nuvio's opinion are discriminating against unaffiliated VoIP companies.

Thursday, Madison River Communications of Mebane, N.C., which owns and operates four rural telephone companies in Georgia, Alabama, North Carolina and Illinois, admitted no guilt in port blocking complaints brought by Vonage, but agreed to a $15, 000 fine and promised to drop the practice.

Aided By Laptops, Internet, Telework Gains In Popularity

March 6, 2005

By Diane E. Lewis

For six years, Pathlore Software Corp. of Ohio wooed Lee Maxey, but each time he turned down the company's job offers. Maxey, 41, didn't want to uproot his family to Pathlore's headquarters in Columbus.

But last year, Maxey finally accepted a position as Pathlore's chief learning officer. The perk that won him over? The firm said he could telework from the comfort of his Duxbury home.

Steve Thomas, the chief executive and president of Pathlore, said the learning management software firm realized that it would have better luck attracting the talent it needed if it extended its recruiting net to include the entire country, and offered new hires a chance to work from home.

"We need executives who really know the e-learning industry," said Thomas. "But you can't always find them in Columbus. The truth is that by the time someone reaches the level of experience that we are seeking, they're established and they don't want to move around. So, we made a compromise."

 VoIP: Plugging The Phone Into What?

Vonage In Print News

Plugging Into The Future

March 7, 2005

By Peter J. Howe

You're going to plug my phone into . . . what?

When it comes to marketing new Internet telephony services to consumers outside the first wave of bargain-hunting technophiles, figuring out a way to answer just how ''voice over Internet protocol" works is just one of a host of questions carriers are grappling with.

Besides offering unlimited calls around the United States for $25 a month or less, and dirt-cheap calls abroad, Internet phone service opens the gates to a host of cutting-edge services that few people even have at the office. One computer mailbox for voice mail and e-mail, software for making phone calls from a laptop, and ''find me" and ''follow me" services that ring home, work, and wireless phones from one number are just three of dozens of innovative -- but sometimes incomprehensible -- services Internet telephony enables.

As companies from AT&T Corp. to Zoom Technologies Inc. take up the challenge, their pitches generally fall into one of three camps: It's cheap. The features are cool. Or a mix of both.

Vonage Passes VoIP Milestone

March 7, 2005

By Colin C. Haley

Growing at a rapid clip despite stepped-up competition, broadband telephony upstart Vonage announced today that it now has more than 500,000 lines in service.

"In a very short time, we've proved that 2005 is the year of mass adoption for VoIP services," Jeffrey A. Citron, Vonage chairman and CEO, said in a statement. "Vonage as the market bellwether has capitalized on this nascent trend."

The privately held, venture-backed service provider said it is adding 15,000 lines every week, tallying orders through its Web site as well as retail partners such as Amazon and Best Buy.

Major telecom and cable providers are rolling out their own VoIP services for consumers and small businesses; however they have declined to release subscriber numbers.

Phone Calls Destined To Be Sent As Data Packets

March 7, 2005

By John Woolfolk

The day is not far off when everyone's phone calls will be delivered much like their e-mail -- as bits of data.

The phone network that has been the backbone of telecommunications for much of the past century is giving way to the technology that drives the Internet.

``We're in the beginning of a 10-year transformation in which the traditional phone network is going to give way to VoIP,'' said telecommunications analyst Jeff Kagan. ``The telecommunications network is being reinvented.''

Most people still don't know or understand what Voice over Internet Protocol is. But that is changing as the high-speed Internet connections that deliver VoIP are becoming more common. Big-name companies like Comcast and AT&T have been pitching the service.

``During the past couple of years we've seen VoIP start to happen,'' said Jeff Pulver, a pioneer in Internet communications technology who publishes VON, an industry magazine that is sponsoring a VoIP conference Monday through Thursday in San Jose. He predicts VoIP customers will double to more than 2 million by the end of this year.

 FCC Issues Fines For Blocking Of Vonage VoIP

FCC Issues Fines For Blocking Of VoIP

March 4, 2005

By David Worthington

FCC Chairman Michael Powell has slapped Madison River Communications with a $15,000 fine for blocking Voice-over-IP (VoIP) Internet phone calls. The FCC's enforcement action comes less than one month after VoIP provider Vonage filed a complaint asking the US government to investigate allegations that competitors are deliberately blocking the use of its services.

Following the agency's disclosure of the settlement, Powell said, "The industry must adhere to certain consumer protection norms if the Internet is to remain an open platform for innovation."

In the complaint, unnamed competitors were accused of blocking Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) addresses that Vonage relies on to operate its services.

IP telephony, better known as VoIP, has economized both local and long distance calling with cut-rate prices as other telephone companies scramble to migrate from their Public Switched Telephone Networks. While smaller Internet firms like Vonage and were first-to-market, major companies such as AT&T, SBC and Comcast have recently launched VoIP offerings.

It's Degrading: VoIP Firms Urge More FCC Action

Chris Murray, Vonage's director of government affairs, said in Madison River's case, one of the company's subsidiaries was blocking VoIP calls to and from a customer who chose to get VoIP service instead of leasing a second, hard-wired telephone line.
