 Vonage Shakes Up Old Phone System - Brings Service To Remote Parts Of U.S.

Vonage In Print News

Universal Battle In Tiny Towns
New Call Options Shake Up An Old Phone System
Rivals, Technology Threaten Program Bringing Service To Remote Parts Of U.S.


February 22, 2005

By Anne Marie Squeo

Mr. Smith's $10 Lifelines

Until recently, Westhope, N.D., a windswept town six miles from the Canadian border, had 533 people, one bank, one bar, one gas station -- and one federally subsidized phone service.

But seven months ago, Cassidy Sivertson, a 27-year-old who runs a computer business out of his home here, bailed out of the subsidized plan, which was costing him about $165 a month. Instead, he signed up for a new Internet-based service from Vonage Holdings Inc. Now, the subsidy-free Vonage phone service, a high-speed Internet connection and an additional toll-free line cost just $60 a month. "It surprises me we can have this type of service out here," says Mr. Sivertson, who says several of his friends have made a similar change thanks to him.

Mr. Sivertson's new setup illustrates how competition and technology are threatening a big shake-up in a program that has played a major role in the phone business for nearly a century. Today dubbed the federal Universal Service Fund, the $6.4 billion program assesses all phone customers a monthly surcharge to help cover the higher cost of providing service in thousands of isolated places like Westhope. The overriding goal is to make sure phone service is "universal," so that everyone in the country has access to it -- no matter where they live.

Critics say the program is a throwback to a time before satellites, cellphone towers and other high-tech gear made it possible to provide phone and Internet service to far-flung towns. Technological changes are also slowly starving the fund. Since it doesn't apply to new Internet-based phone services that most major companies are rolling out, people like Mr. Sivertson aren't required to kick in anything toward the fund. When it released its budget this month, the Bush administration disclosed that the USF will incur $200 million more in obligations than it expects to take in during the fiscal year ending Sept. 30.

 Vonage Takes Part In Oscar Hand Out

Oscar Isn't The Only Gold Handed Out

February 21, 2005

By Karen Thomas

Celebrity "gifting" — handing out freebies at awards shows and other events in hopes that the products will be photographed or mentioned in the media — is a booming business.

And now businesses that donate to celebrity gift bags are trying to ensure that their products end up in the hands of A-list celebs, not in the closets of fourth-tier Hollywood hangers-on.

Gift bags are so hot that many companies are creating advertising divisions to focus solely on celebrity placements, says Karen Wood, president of Backstage Creations, which specializes in creating celebrity gift bags.

Wood says her clients are becoming a lot more discerning. They "want insurance that we are passing it hand-to-hand to a celebrity, and it's not going to a publicist's office where it will sit with 15 or 20 other baskets."

Ma Bell's Kids Will Live On The Net

February 28, 2005

By Steven Levy

We're seeing the phone call turn into just another Internet tool, like e-mail or instant messaging.

Have telephone companies gone off the hook? In the last few weeks, AT&T has been gobbled by SBC and MCI snapped up by Verizon. It's like some toddler upchucked his alphabet soup.
Part of this ferment comes from the telco struggle to deal with new technologies, but the most disruptive change of all—voice over Internet protocol (VoIP), pronounced by geeks as "v-oy-p"—is only beginning to make its mark. "Telephone service used to be based on a huge infrastructure of high-priced equipment," says Peter Sisson, a former Bell Labs researcher turned entrepreneur. "And now it's just software."

Think about that. All those costly switching stations and all those miles of wire and fiber optic trumped by the ability to plug your telephone into the Internet, where voice is as easily transmitted as e-mail, iTunes songs and pictures of Teri Hatcher. That's why a company called Vonage can sell 400,000 subscribers unlimited long distance service for $25 a month, simply by letting them plug their phones into broadband Internet instead of phone jacks. And that's certainly why the Swedish mavericks who created the Kazaa file-sharing service could use the same kind of digital bucket-brigade-style model to come up with an Internet peer-to-peer-based phone service called Skype.

Making Phone Calls Over The Net

February 21, 2005

By Staff

Telephone calls made over an internet connection are predicted to be the next revolution in telecommunications. Cheaper broadband costs and user friendly software is helping users to start making Voice over IP (VoIP) calls, with a number of companies offering products.

VONAGE

The premise of Vonage is simple - plug your existing phone or a second handset into a specially adapted router and start making phone calls over the internet.

Vonage charges £9.99 a month, and for that price local and national calls are all free, while calls to mobiles and international numbers are much cheaper.

Features such as voice mail, call waiting etc are all included in the price.

Poll Sees Big Year For Internet Phone Technology

February 18, 2005

By Martha McKay

Internet-based telephone technology will be a key growth area this year for New Jersey telecommunications companies.
That's according to industry executives polled recently by the New Jersey Technology Council and Stevens Institute of Technology.

Results of the 2005 New Jersey Telecommunications Industry Forecast were released Thursday at an event hosted by Basking Ridge-based AT&T.

Of the 101 New Jersey-based telecommunications executives who responded to the poll, 52 percent listed Internet-based phone technology, also called Voice over Internet Protocol, as the "most important growth area" this year.

VoIP is a method of sending phone calls as bits of data, as opposed to traditional circuit-based calling technologies.

Phone companies have rushed into the small but growing market, and many of the companies that offer VoIP to consumers are based in New Jersey, including Edison-based Vonage and North Brunswick-based VoicePulse.

 Vonage Helps Landlines Die To Computer Technology

Landlines May Die To Computer Technology

February 18, 2005

By Tom Howell Jr

OIT considers plan to send calls using Internet connection.

The Office of Information Technology has assembled a committee to look into refreshing the campus telecommunications system and explore the possibility of sending phone conversations along computer lines.

The committee, consisting of representatives elected by deans and vice presidents, is looking into the installation of Voice-over-Internet Protocol, OIT spokeswoman Amy Ginther said. VoIP allows people to make telephone calls over a broadband Internet connection rather than a regular phone line. The switch would save money because calls would go over existing computer connections, making phone lines unnecessary.

Say Goodbye To Choppy Video And Hello To Real-Time

February 17, 2005

By Suzanne Deffree

Jerky video and high prices associated with videophones will become a thing of the past, as Texas Instruments Inc. hopes to bring real-time, high-quality consumer videophones to the home.

The Dallas-based company has partnered with Wintech Digital Systems Technology Corp. to release the Videophone Development Platform (VDP), what the duo describes as a complete development platform for designing point-to-point IP-based videophone systems.

TI is banking on the breakdown of traditional barriers to adoption of videophones, such as choppy video quality and high unit cost. Those will be overcome, according to the company and its partner, with the recent introduction of new video codecs that require half the bandwidth for video transfers, the continuing penetration of IP broadband connectivity and the availability of single-chip encode and decode implementation.

Adding to the push are telecos looking for another revenue stream, says TI's Pradeep Bardia, business development manager for the company's video group.

What To See At 3GSM Mobile Show

February 14, 2005

By Joia Shillingford

Among the more unusual technologies on display at this week's big mobile show in Cannes will be a mobile phone that can be used as a computer mouse.

Attendance at the show, the biggest event in the industry, is expected to be a third higher than last year.
The annual show, starting on Monday, has got so big it is relocating to Barcelona next year because there is not enough space for exhibitors.

For the 38,000 visitors, even finding somewhere to sleep in the southern French town can be difficult.

Many visitors commute by train from nearby villages - or Monaco.

"The high turnout shows that even the network equipment companies are recovering after being hit very heavily in the downturn," says Mark Newman, chief research officer at Informa, the UK-listed company that runs the 3GSM World Congress.
