 FCC Expected To Exempt VoIP From State Rules

FCC Expected To Exempt VoIP From State Rules

November 9, 2004

By Paul Davidson

The Federal Communications Commission is expected to vote today to exempt Internet-based phone companies from state regulation, a step that could help boost the emerging services.

But the vote is likely to anger some local officials who say the FCC is usurping local authority.

Among other things, the ruling would mean states could not force Vonage and other Internet phone companies to provide 911 service or comply with local consumer fraud laws, FCC officials told USA TODAY.

Vonage is the leading provider of a new crop of Voice-over-Internet Protocol phone offerings that are serving a fast-growing base of several hundred thousand customers.

 Federal Ruling On Web Calling

Federal Ruling On Web Calling Is Expected To Aid Sector's Growth

November 9, 2004

By Anne Marie Squeo

WASHINGTON -- With new technologies rapidly redefining traditional phone service, federal regulators today are expected to shield emerging Internet-based phone calls from some state regulatory requirements, creating greater incentive for companies big and small to offer similar services.

At its monthly meeting, the Federal Communications Commission is expected to approve a request by Vonage Holdings Inc., a start-up company offering Internet phone plans to consumers, declaring it an interstate service, people familiar with the matter said. That would free Vonage, which has about 300,000 Internet phone lines in use, from numerous state telephone regulations, including certification to offer service, service-quality and reporting requirements, and contributing to state phone-subsidy programs.

"By being interstate, regulation will be exclusively federal," said Jeffrey Citron, chairman and chief executive of Vonage, based in Edison, N.J. "Today, a number of states have tried to assert local jurisdiction, and each has different local standards. That's incredibly problematic for a global company that doesn't know where its customers are at any given time." Vonage's service allows users to take their phone number with them no matter where they are in the world.

 Federal Communications Commission Ruled To Insulate Vonage From State Reg's

Vonage In Print News

The U.S. Federal Communications Commission On Tuesday Approved A Petition To Insulate Vonage Holdings Corp.'s Internet-Based Telephone Service From Certain State Regulations

November 9, 2004

By Staff

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Federal Communications Commission on Tuesday approved a petition to insulate Vonage Holdings Corp.'s Internet-based telephone service from certain state regulations.

The agency voted to declare Vonage's Voice Over Internet Protocol telephone service -- which uses a high-speed Internet connection -- interstate in nature, shielding it from state regulations like required certification, rate regulation and certain emergency 911 services.

FCC To Announce VoIP Verdict

November 9, 2004

By Colin C. Haley and Roy Mark

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is expected to rule today that Voice over IP (define) provider Vonage is exempt from state telecom regulations and tariffs.

A ruling in the company's favor would eliminate the need for VoIP providers to negotiate rates with individual state governments -- a process that could impede deployments and jack up customers' bills.

Specifically, the FCC will decide whether Vonage's business should be classified as an interstate information service, which is no different from applications, such as e-mail.

"The [Vonage] petition gives the commission an appropriate opportunity to immediately declare that VoIP services ... are interstate in nature and subject to the commission's exclusive jurisdiction," 61 members of Congress stated in a letter to FCC Chairman Michael Powell.

 VOIP Service To Be Treated As Interstate

Vonage In Print News

Vonage Internet Telephony Service Interstate

November 9, 2004

By Staff

WASHINGTON -- The Federal Communications Commission Tuesday granted a petition by Vonage Holdings Corp. asking that its voice over Internet protocol, or VOIP, service be treated as interstate, putting it under federal jurisdiction.

The ruling shields Internet telephony services like Vonage's from state regulatory oversight, including similar Internet-enabled services provided by cable companies.

"This landmark order recognizes that a revolution has occurred," said FCC Chairman Michael Powell. "What today's decision does is put the Commission in a firm position of responsibility."

In a statement, Vonage Chief Executive Jeffrey Citron said "because the FCC has acknowledged the reality of the Internet - which knows no state boundaries and no borders - more people will enjoy the benefits of Internet phone service."

U.S. FCC Bars States From Regulating Web-Call Pricing, Terms

November 9, 2004

By Scott Lanman

Nov. 9 (Bloomberg) -- U.S. communications regulators barred state governments from applying some rules imposed on telephone services to Internet-based calling sold by companies such as AT&T Corp. and Vonage Holdings Corp.

The Federal Communications Commission voted in Washington to declare that Internet-phone services should be subject only to certain federal regulations.

FCC Serves Up Tax Break For Net Calling

November 9, 2004

By Scott Moritz

Federal regulators handed the Internet calling business a victory on the tax front Tuesday.

The Federal Communications Commission ruled that Net calling isn't the same as local phone service and therefore not subject to state jurisdiction. The decision means that services offered by companies such as closely held Vonage -- a well-chronicled leader in selling voice-over-Internet-protocol calling -- shouldn't be subject to conventional state telecom regulations.

The decision not only frees Vonage from state-by-state oversight, but also allows the company to avoid collecting various fees and taxes typically added to conventional phone bills.

Though the decision was anticipated, industry observers say it helps clarify the rules.

FCC VoIP Ruling Could Impact USF Bill

November 9, 2004

By Heather Forsgren Weaver

WASHINGTON-A ruling Tuesday by the Federal Communications Commission to declare it has jurisdiction over Voice over Internet Protocol because VoIP is interstate will increase the pressure on Congress to pass legislation next year to reform the universal-service program, said the top lobbyist for state regulators.

"The two things that people were predicting next year that may be a possibility was something narrow on universal service and something on dealing with the states on VoIP," said James Bradford Ramsay, general counsel of the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners. "It seems to me this kind of blunts the pressure on the VoIP half of the equation and increases the pressure in a very real sense on the universal-service half of the equation, but I am not sure they will be able to move anything on universal service."

 VoIP Gets A Boost From The FCC

VoIP Gets A Boost From The FCC

November 9, 2004

By W. David Gardner

Voice over the Internet (VoIP) telephoning received a boost Tuesday by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), which voted to bar state regulators from exercising key jurisdiction over VoIP.

Specifically, the FCC approved a petition from VoIP provider Vonage Holdings that asked for approval to provide Internet-phoning service in Minnesota. The positive FCC action--whose approval had been telegraphed by chairman Michael Powell for months--is not only a victory for Vonage, but also for AT&T, which has been promoting its CallVantage VoIP service.

"There was a risk that individual states would have created a patchwork of regulations," said Jan Dawson, research director of the Ovum consultancy, in an interview. "A consensus developed over time that [VoIP] would be best regulated on the federal level and not on the state level."
