VoIP Cost Savings Entice Carriers

December 1, 2004

By Stefan Dubowski

Voice over IP (VoIP) may well bring cost savings to businesses, but what do carriers get out of it? Apparently the technology does just the same for service providers, judging by the words of presenters at a Toronto telecom conference.

At the Canadian Institute’s VoIP Summit, held on Nov. 30 and Dec. 1, speakers from Vonage Holdings Corp., Bell Canada Enterprises Inc. (BCE), Telus Corp. and Allstream outlined their companies’ interest in VoIP.

According to Vonage Canada president Bill Rainey, IP phone technology lets his company get into the carrier game at a much lower price than the traditional carriers faced when they started out. Rainey said it cost Vonage $22 million to build its North America VoIP access service. Lawson Hunter, BCE’s executive vice-president, his company has $3 billion sunk into its traditional, non-VoIP network and pays $1 billion a year for upkeep.

Rainey said his company operates a VoIP service that is detached from traditional access technology. Vonage’s service rides on the Internet, whereas BCE and its subsidiary Bell Canada had to roll out wires to bring regular phone service to its customers.

 FCC Preempts State Utility Regulation Of VoIP Services

FCC Preempts State Utility Regulation Of VoIP Services
Ruling Clears Way For MSOs, Bells, Third Parties To Roll Out IP Telephony

December 1, 2004

By Alan Breznick

In a decision with major implications for cable operators, phone companies and other telecom players, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) ruled last month that state utility commissions don't have the authority to regulate voice-over-IP (VoIP) service like traditional phone service.

As expected by agency observers, the FCC told states to back off in their attempts to treat Vonage Holdings Corp.'s DigitalVoice service as a conventional landline service.

Such states as Minnesota and New York have sought to make Vonage comply with traditional phone rules, which would force it to file pricing plans, offer 911 emergency services and pay into local universal service funds. With its early November ruling, the FCC preempted these moves, declaring that only it has the power to regulate services like Vonage's.

Acting on a petition filed by Vonage against the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission last fall, the FCC found that DigitalVoice is an "inherently interstate" service that can't be broken down into local, interstate and international segments. The Commission noted that Vonage's customers can use their phones from a broadband connection anywhere in the world, making it tough, if not impossible, to figure out whether a call is local, interstate or even international in nature.

Cheap Talk

December 1, 2004

By Joe Waller

International Travelers Are Finding Big Savings Where Phone Technology Meets The Internet.

Richard Cowell, an information specialist for the British consulate in New York, resides in Manhattan, but when he calls his parents, who live in England—and when they phone him—the calls are free.

Both Cowell and his parents are part of the legions of new VoIP subscribers. VoIP, or Voice over Internet Protocol, is a method for routing phone calls via the Internet by breaking the voice signal into small data packets—similar to the way an e-mail or Web page is sent. And, as with e-mail, the cost is the same no matter where you’re calling: Provided you have Internet access, the connection is free.

VoIP technology has been around for years, but it has only recently hit the mainstream as broadband connections become more common (the faster speeds allow instantaneous transmission of your voice and better clarity) and major phone and cable providers begin to offer the service. The Yankee Group, a telecommunications research firm, predicts there will be 17/5 million VoIP subscribers by 2008, up from one million in 2004.

Metro Area Attracts Venture Capital

November 30, 2004

By Jamie Herzlich

Joseph Chappell, chief executive of a Manhattan software developer, said his company didn't have to bang on too many doors to get its latest round of venture capital financing.

After all, it was the sixth round of funding for the 6-year-old company and it had a proven track record.

"It happened fairly quickly," Chappell of MetaMatrix Inc. said in an interview yesterday. His company snagged $12 million in the third quarter within roughly two months.

MetaMatrix was one of 42 metropolitan area firms that scored big in the third quarter, according to a new survey. All told, 42 companies received $457 million from venture capital firms and similar entities during the quarter, according to a new Money Tree Survey by PricewaterhouseCoopers, Venture Economics, and the National Venture Capital Association. This represented a 56 percent increase from this year's second quarter and a 32 percent increase from the third quarter of 2003.

"The region did very well," said David Silverman, a partner at PricewaterhouseCoopers in Manhattan, who covers the metro region. "It appears to be on an upswing."

 VoIP Connects On Far More Than Cost

VoIP Connects On Far More Than Cost Now

November 28, 2004

By Eric Lai

Phone calls made over the Internet used to be inconvenient -callers were tethered to their desktop PCs by their phone headsets - and sounded awful.

Voice-over-Internet-Protocol, or VoIP, technology had been, like many things technological, overly hyped during the late 1990s. Truly, VoIP's only advantage over regular phone calls was that it was really cheap, or free, for the callers.

Much has changed. Internet phone users can now place calls from regular phones, cordless phones or even cell phones. Users can also enjoy sparkling sound quality, as consumer services such as Vonage and Skype have shown.

But long-distance and cell phone rates have plummeted, too. So is there any reason to upgrade to Internet telephony?
There is. For companies, Internet telephony is less about making cheap cross-country or international calls than about upgrading their clunky analog phone systems to digital IP ones that are easier to manage and more powerful.

New VoIP features allow firms to easily forward calls to cell phones of workers in the field; send voice mail as e-mail attachments; and allow firms to consolidate their telecom and IT staffs into single teams.

 Price Drop For Internet Phone Calls Showing Up

Price Drop For Internet Phone Calls Showing Up

November 27, 2004

By John C. Roper

About eight months ago, Lance Barlow finally became fed up with his home telephone service.

"We used to have a lot of static on our land line," said Barlow, a software consultant in Houston. "I'd call my mother, and we could barely hear each other."

The last straw for Barlow was a problem with his bill.

"I had a second line where I forgot to sign up for a long-distance carrier and (the phone company) ended up just throwing some long-distance company on there that charged me about $3 per minute," said Barlow. "When I called to complain about it, they told me, 'Well, you should have known about it.' And I told them, 'Well, you should know about VoIP.' "

Barlow has since been a customer of Vonage, an Edison, N.J-based provider of VoIP, or Voice over Internet Protocol, which allows users to place telephone calls cheaply over the Internet.

An Explosive Year For VOIP

November 25, 2004

By Ellen Muraskin

Remember 2004 as the year that VOIP finally penetrated mass consumer consciousness, as friends in normal walks of life began to gain a dim awareness of the stuff I write about.

Give the lion's share of credit to Vonage. Jeff Citron's ad budget bought him banners on such general-interest sites as, as well as space on all of the techie online hangouts. Covad aired commercials for its hosted business VOIP on prime-time television.

Cable companies did likewise with their consumer VOIP (voice over IP) offerings, and even the traditional telcos–both regional Bells and the long-distance triumverate–were forced to follow suit this year, igniting a consumer price war.
