FCC Defends Voice-Over-Internet Service

March 4, 2005

By Staff

U.S. regulators have forced a North Carolina phone company to stop blocking customers from using voice-over-Internet calling services.

The Federal Communications Commission said Madison River Communications Corp. has agreed to pay $15,000 and to stop blocking the ability of consumers to use voice-over-Internet calling services instead of regular phone lines, the Washington Post said Friday.

Thursday's announcement signals a victory for an emerging technology that threatens the market share of traditional phone companies.

Known as VoIP, for voice over Internet protocol, such communication increasingly is being used by businesses and consumers instead of traditional phone service. Although VoIP requires high-speed Internet access, providers offer unlimited local, long-distance, and even some international calling for as little as $20 a month.

Vonage Continues Unprecedented Growth; Nearly Doubles Number of VoIP Lines in Canada in Past Three Months

Mississauga, ON, March 7, 2005 – Vonage, the leading broadband telephony provider, today announced it has exceeded 500,000 total lines in service on its network, doubling its growth rate, an industry first, with the addition of more than 15,000 lines per week.

Citron, chairman and CEO of Vonage Holdings Corp. “The exponential growth is real: there is no question as to whether VoIP or Vonage is here to stay.”

Texas Instruments Selected by Vonage(r) as its Preferred Provider for VoIP Silicon and Software Agreement with Biggest Broadband Telephony Provider Solidifies TI's Position as Top Supplier of VoIP Technology, Shipping More than 100 Million Ports Worldwide

SAN JOSE, Calif. (March 7, 2005) - Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) [NYSE:TXN] and Vonage, the leading broadband phone company, today
announced that Vonage has selected TI as its preferred provider of Voice
over IP (VoIP) silicon and software. This agreement between the two
companies encourages VoIP equipment manufacturers to use TI's VoIP

"TI is a great partner and has helped Vonage become the largest provider

consumers to switch from the traditional PSTN service to broadband

Corporation. "We recognize that TI's VoIP software and chips are the
best available and recommend that products used on our network
incorporate TI's field-proven technology. This will help us deliver to
our customers the highest quality and most advanced VoIP solutions,
spurring faster VoIP adoption rates and further validating the market."

Phone Company Settles In Blocking Of Internet Calls

March 4, 2005

By Jonathan Krim

The Federal Communications Commission announced yesterday that a North Carolina-based telephone company agreed to pay $15,000 and to stop blocking the ability of consumers to use voice-over-Internet calling services instead of regular phone lines.

In the first action of its kind, the FCC settled with Madison River Communications Corp., which operates several rural phone companies throughout the Southeast and Midwest.
Calling based on voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) increasingly is being used by businesses and consumers as a substitute for traditional phone service. Although VoIP requires high-speed Internet access, its major providers offer unlimited local, long-distance, and even some international calling for as little as $20 a month.

Vonage Holdings Corp., one of the nation's leading Internet phone companies, had complained that as many as 200 customers had their service blocked by a Madison River subsidiary that provided its phone customers with Internet access.

Source Of Vonage Blockage Revealed

March 4, 2005

By Pete Rojas

Damn, it turns out that there was a local telephone company that was blocking Vonage. The FCC has just fined North Carolina-based Madison River Communications, the nation’s “17th largest phone company”, 15 grand for blocking ports used for making Voice over IP phone calls. By blocking those ports Madison River was effectively able to stop its DSL subscribers from using Vonage’s phone service, something Vonage obviously wasn’t too psyched about, and we’re stoked that the FCC came down on the right side on this one (to be honest VoIP seems to be just about the only thing the FCC is progressive about these days, though maybe that’s only because it’d be hard to start censoring phone calls).

 Madison River Communications To Pay Fine For Vonage Blocking

Vonage In Print News

Wireline

March 4, 2005

By Staff

The FCC Enforcement Bureau entered a consent decree with Madison River Communications to end an investigation into complaints that the company blocked ports used for VoIP applications such as those offered by Vonage. Madison River agreed to pay $15,000 and not block ports "or otherwise prevent customers from using VoIP applications." A representative of Vonage, which last month complained of port blocking but didn't name specific companies, said the ruling was a victory (CD Feb 16 p9). "We saw a problem and we acted swiftly to ensure that Internet voice service remains a viable option for consumers," said FCC Chmn. Powell: "The industry must adhere to certain consumer protection norms if the Internet is to remain an open platform for innovation."

Phone Phirm Blocked Internet Calls
Customer Freedom, We Have Heard Of It


March 4, 2005

By Nick Farrell

THE FCC has said that a North Carolina-based telephone company has agreed to pay a $15,000 fine and to stop blocking the ability of consumers to use voice-over-IP calling services.

We think it had little choice and resembled a fine.
Madison River Communications, which operates several rural phone companies throughout the Southeast and Midwest, had blocked more than 200 customers from using a Voice-over-IP service run by Vonage Holdings.

In some cases this meant that customers who had disconnected their traditional phone lines and were relying solely on Vonage, could make emergency calls.

When hacks from the Washington Post asked Madison River why it would do such a thing, its spinsters said it could not talk to them because the company was filing for an IPO of stock. Handy.

North Carolina Telephone Company Has Agreed To Pay A $15,000 Fine

North Carolina telephone company has agreed to pay a $15,000 fine and to stop blocking the ability of users to use voice-over-IP calling services (this service gives an opportunity to call from Internet, using their Internet Service Provider).

Madison River Communications, which operates several rural phone companies throughout the Southeast and Midwest, had blocked more than 200 customers from using a Voice-over-IP service run by Vonage Holdings.

In some cases this meant that users who had disconnected their traditional phones and were using only Vonage connection, could make emergency calls.

FCC Fines Telecom Co For Internet Phone Blocking

March 3, 2005

By Brian Blackstone

WASHINGTON -- The Federal Communications Commission on Thursday fined rural telecommunications and Internet services company Madison River Communications LLC $15,000 for blocking Internet phone service.

In addition to paying the penalty, Madison agreed not to block voice over Internet protocol, or VOIP, phone traffic from providers such as Vonage Holdings Corp.

Vonage notified the FCC of the issue last month.

"We saw a problem, and we acted swiftly to ensure that Internet voice service remains a viable option for consumers," said FCC Chairman Michael K. Powell.

Though the dollar amounts are small and the blocking affected only a few hundred Vonage customers, the FCC's decision has much larger symbolic impact. VOIP providers like Vonage depend on other companies' DSL and cable platforms to provide their service, which offers nationwide unlimited long-distance service for a flat fee. Thursday's action is the FCC's first on Internet phone blocking.

"The good news here is this sends a clear signal to the broadband industry that the FCC will not tolerate interfering with your right to communicate with one another," Jeffrey Citron, Vonage's chief executive, told Dow Jones Newswires.
