This Week In VoIP News

November 12, 2004

By Steven Musil

The Federal Communications Commission ruled 3-2 that states are now barred from imposing telecommunications regulations on Internet phone providers, which treat calls no differently than any other application on the Net.

That class of operators includes Vonage Holdings, which asked the FCC for just such a designation in May, plus Verizon Communications, AT&T and dozens of other commercial Internet providers, according to those familiar with the FCC's thinking.

"This landmark order recognizes a revolution has occurred," FCC Chairman Michael Powell said at a meeting in Washington, D.C. The FCC's decision was a general one, was widely anticipated, and answers just one of dozens of questions about how regulators will ultimately treat Internet phone services, typically referred to as voice over Internet Protocol, or VoIP.

 FCC Launches First Salvo In Battle Over New Phone Rules

FCC Launches First Salvo In Battle Over New Phone Rules

November 12, 2004

By David Nicklaus

At one level, the Federal Communications Commission's ruling this week on Internet telephony was just another turf battle between state and federal governments. But it also was much more than that.

"It's the prelude to a series of very important orders that will change the way phone service is regulated in this country," said Jim Falvey, senior vice president of regulatory affairs at Xpedius Communications in O'Fallon, Mo.

The FCC pre-empted an attempt by Minnesota to regulate Vonage, which offers phone service using voice over Internet protocol, or VoIP. Essentially, the FCC decided that because Internet calls can't easily be categorized as local or long-distance, they should be regulated only at the federal level.

The FCC has much rulemaking left to do on VoIP, but it's clear that this technology has the potential to shake up the telecommunications industry. If enough consumers embrace it, traditional phone companies like SBC Communications will step up the pressure on states and on Congress to free them from regulations they consider burdensome.

CEA Hails FCC Decision To Preempt State Regulation Of VoIP Services

November 12, 2004

By Edie Herman

Vonage's DigitalVoice VoIP service is interstate, so it can't be regulated by state PUCs, the FCC ruled Tues. The ruling was hailed by CEA, which said the FCC's action "provides the appropriate framework to establish one federal nationwide VoIP policy."

The ruling, which asserts federal jurisdiction over Vonage-like services, came in response to a preemption petition filed last year by Vonage. Although referring to Vonage service, the decision applies to other types of IP- enabled services, the Commission said. CEA Pres. Gary Shapiro said the advancement of VoIP services would be "a key element in driving consumer demand and adoption" of broadband technology. There's "a unique synergy between VoIP and broadband that allows each to be used as a purchase incentive for the other," he said. The Commission's action was "a strong step toward regulatory clarity, which is needed to advance VoIP services that will provide enormous benefits to consumers and the economy," Shapiro said. "We commend the FCC's leadership in taking action to avoid a patchwork of state regulations that would stifle the advancement of this new form of communication."

Readers Make Calls On Phones, Exit Polls

November 11, 2004

By Tim Hanrahan And Jason Fry

In Monday's column we looked at how the exit-poll controversy had (unfairly) become a referendum on blogs. We also looked at the dwindling fortunes of the traditional phone call, now being shoved aside by e-mail and instant messaging.

Dave Friedman writes: I basically side with your take on the issue of phone use in the age of e-mail, but I admit I use the phone more now than I used to. The reason is about a year ago I got VOIP service with Vonage and my calls to friends in LA, London, & Geneva became incredibly cheap. My wife's family is half-Turkish, and when she calls Istanbul her relatives are always asking her if she needs to get off the phone, because they still live in the world of circuit-based telephony. We, of course, pay about 10 cents a minute to Istanbul, and less to Western Europe.

Broke? The Easiest Way To Save $200 This Month

November 11, 2004

By Meghan Foye

What's it gonna be? Those great-fitting Banana Republic jeans on sale or getting your oil changed? If you're like us, most of the time you'll take the chance that the car won't break down. But, if you know where to cut back, you can be a responsible adult and still look hot.

INSTEAD OF: Paying full price, period
TRY: Buying that full-price dress, but when it goes on sale in a few weeks, ask for a price adjustment. Major stores such as Gap will give you the difference on time within 14 days of purchase. Or go online: has amazing bargains on furniture and clothes. We found a bright-red, comfy-looking couch for only $629.99, with a measly $2.95 shipping fee.
SAVINGS: $5 and up

TOO HIGH BILL: Online Shopping
INSTEAD OF: Buying clothes or other items directly from the website
TRY: Registering at, an “affiliate” site that gives you cash back on purchases. Instead of buying directly from, make your purchase through They take a small part of the commission they receive for referring you, then give you the rest. (You typically get 3 percent for and, and 4 percent for purchases.) Every three months, the site will mail you a check.
SAVINGS: $6, if you buy $150 worth of stuff and get a 4 percent rebate

 FCC Applauded For Exempting Vonage From State Public Utility Regulation

TMC’s Rich Tehrani Applauds FCC For Exempting Vonage From State Public Utility Regulation

November 10, 2004

By Rich Tehrani

Norwalk, CT, [November 10, 2004] — Recently the FCC ruled on a petition from Vonage saying that they will not be subject to a patchwork of state regulations governing telephone companies. According to Rich Tehrani, Group Editor-in-Chief of leading trade magazine INTERNET TELEPHONY, although this is a grand first step, many questions and issues remain regarding VoIP Taxation and Regulation.

“The recent ruling on VoIP by the FCC is an excellent step in the right direction as one less regulatory cloud hangs over the industry. As a result, consumers will continue to have lower cost long-distance as well as enhanced services they do not enjoy today. The capital markets will have one less stumbling block to overcome when investing in the IP telephony market and competition will continue to flourish,” explained Tehrani.

Although all five commissioners were in agreement, Tehrani recognizes VoIP still has myriad hurdles it must overcome on its way to becoming the way the world communicates.

FCC Wants No State Strings Attached To VoIP

November 10, 2004

By Jason Lopez

The Federal Communications Commission voted to strike down state regulation of VoIP services. The ruling is a step in a larger set of decisions on broadband services slated for spring of next year.

Specifically, the FCC said that Minnesota could not regulate Vonage's DigitalVoice VoIP service. The state's Public Utilities Commission had moved to regulate the digital telephony service by separating it into intrastate and interstate pieces. Through Vonage's case the FCC reiterated its authority to set rules for interstate communications.

Market Solution

The FCC is nurturing the broadband industry in the U.S. One of the main items on its agenda is to clear the air surrounding conflicting state regulations of the Internet and broadband services. "The Commission sees today's decision as a pro-competitive play," said Mark Wigfield, spokesperson for the FCC's wireline competition bureau.
"The idea is that disparate state regulations slow the rollout of broadband services," he told NewsFactor. "When everyone is on the same page, the economics make more sense and it helps to encourage demand."

 FCC: States Can't Regulate Net Phones

FCC: States Can't Regulate Net Phones Dozens Of Rules Are Too Many, The Agency Says. But Worries About 911 And Universal Service Remain

November 10, 2004

By Anne C. Mulkern

Washington - Phone calls made over the Internet cannot be regulated by states, the Federal Communications Commission said Wednesday.

By a 5-0 vote, the FCC said Internet-based phone service, called voice-over-Internet protocol or VoIP, should be free to grow without a "patchwork" of regulations put in place by 50 states and the District of Columbia.

Moreover, Internet-based service is not local, or even national in nature, commissioners said.

"The genius of the Internet is that it knows no boundaries. In cyberspace, distance is dead," FCC Chairman Michael Powell said. "Communication and information can race around the planet and back with ease."

FCC Pulls Voice-Over Internet From States

November 10, 2004

U.S. regulators have moved to place the emerging voice over Internet phone services squarely under federal control.

The Federal Communications Commission granted a petition Tuesday by Vonage Holdings that its service be treated as interstate, the Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday.

Although Minnesota's public utilities regulators had been seeking jurisdiction of the service, the FCC said that because customers could use the service from a cell phone anywhere in the world it was most naturally a federal rather than a state concern.
