 FCC To Announce VoIP Verdict

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

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."

 FCC Frees VoIP Service From State

Vonage In Print News

FCC Frees VoIP Service From State Regulation

November 9, 2004

By Stephen Lawson

A VoIP service offered by Vonage Holdings is not subject to the public utility regulations of individual U.S. states, the U.S. Federal Communications Commission declared Tuesday.

Vonage's DigitalVoice service can't be governed by dual state and federal rules because it can't practically be separated into intrastate and interstate components, the FCC said in a statement. Because DigitalVoice customers can use the service to make a call from a broadband connection anywhere in the world, it's hard to determine whether a call is local, interstate or international, the statement said. The opinion extends to other similar services, such as those offered by cable operators.

The decision has potentially broad implications for increasingly popular VoIP services, which convert voice calls into packets for transmission over data networks. Lower cost, portability and advanced usability features are among the benefits promised by VoIP. The technology also has opened up new opportunities for cable operators to offer a "triple play" of voice, video and data services in competition with traditional telecommunications and broadband providers.

U.S. FCC Frees Internet Phone Calls From State Rules

November 9, 2004

By Scott Lanman

Nov. 9 (Bloomberg) -- Internet-telephone services sold by companies such as AT&T Corp. and Vonage Holdings Corp. should be free from the rules each state imposes on regular phone companies, the Federal Communications Commission ruled.

FCC Chairman Michael Powell said limiting regulation will spur the growth of the service, which researcher In-Stat/MDR predicts will increase to $776.9 million in two years from $34.5 million in 2003.

``The industry as a whole can move forward,'' Vonage Chief Executive Officer Jeffrey Citron said in an interview. ``This benefits everyone.''

Providers of Internet phone services, or Voice over Internet Protocol, won't have to spend time and money complying with state requirements such as gaining certification and adhering to 911- dialing rules. Vonage, a pioneer in the market and the biggest provider with 300,000 customer lines, AT&T, Verizon Communications Inc. and Comcast Corp. are expanding Internet calling, routing voice calls over networks and giving more features at a lower cost.

 Vonage Casts Its Lot With The FCC

Vonage Casts Its Lot With The FCC

November 9, 2004

By Harold Furchtgott-Roth

This morning the FCC will rule that the voice-over-Internet-protocol services offered by Vonage are exclusively interstate in nature. With this ruling, Vonage can legitimately claim that its services are subject to regulation only by the FCC rather than the states.

Many reporters will hail the ruling as a monumental victory for VOIP. The outcome is actually much less clear.

Practically every telephone and cable company, from AT &T to Verizon to Comcast, has or is planning a VOIP option. VOIP uses broadband routers and software to send voice messages from a regular telephone to other telephones around the world. To the user, it has the convenience of a wireless service but with higher sound quality and more software options than imaginable.

Successful CRM: Turning Customer Loyalty Into Profitability

November 9, 2004

By Staff

U.S. regulators ruled Tuesday that providers of Internet-based phone call services fall under the jurisdiction of the federal government and cannot be regulated by states.

The Federal Communications Commission voted 5-0 in favor of Vonage Holdings Corp. of Edison, N.J., which had asked the agency to declare the company's product an interstate service, giving the FCC regulatory control.

Vonage has been battling public utilities officials in Minnesota who want the company to register in the state as a telecommunications service, subjecting it to rate regulation and other state rules.

The ruling applies to cable, phone and other companies offering an Internet phone service similar to the one Vonage provides. The decision does not, however, preclude states from imposing some taxes and fees. It also does not address access charges, which are fees paid to local phone companies for completing calls sent via the Internet to conventional phones.
