 FCC Frees VoIP Service From State

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 In Print News

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.

FCC Rules VOIP Not Subject To State Rules

November 9, 2004

By Ryan Naraine

In what amounts to a big win for Vonage Holdings Corp., the Federal Communications Commission on Tuesday ruled that the broadband phone company's service was exempt from state and local regulation and tariffs.

In a narrow 3-2 vote, the FCC backed a petition from the Edison, N.J.-based Vonage that its IP-to-PSTN (Public Switched Telephone Network) communications business was "interstate" in nature and therefore insulates the company from regulation by individual states.

Vonage & Linksys Connect On VoIP WiFi Router

November 9, 2004

By Christian Harris

Linksys’ consumer and small-business oriented Wireless-G Broadband Router is unusual in the way that it offers four devices in one box: a Wireless-G access point, built-in 3-port switch to connect wired Ethernet devices, router so that multiple users can securely share a single cable or DSL Internet connection, and two standard telephone jacks (each operating independently) for carrying Voice-over-IP (VoIP) calls.

It also comes with Vonage’s Internet telephony service, so you can start making high-quality low-cost phone calls over a broadband connection out of the box - even when you’re browsing the Internet.

With the added Vonage service, US-based users should get low domestic and international phone rates, Caller ID, Call Waiting, Voicemail, Call Forwarding, Distinctive Ring, and lots of other available special phone features. You can also choose any free local dialling US area code, regardless of where you live, add a virtual phone number in any area code, or even a US-wide toll-free number.

 FCC May Rule For Net Phone Firm

FCC May Rule For Net Phone Firm
Federal Regulators Are Expected To Keep Jurisdiction Over VoIP


November 9, 2004

By Vikas Bajaj

The Federal Communications Commission is expected to rule today that state regulators don't have jurisdiction over Internet-based telephone service.

In a decision that could have ramifications for taxes, fees and rules on the new technology, the FCC is expected to pre-empt states from regulating Vonage Holdings Corp. as a telephone company.

The New Jersey company has been fighting off state supervision in just Minnesota and New York, but many other states have been waiting for the commission to rule.

If Vonage were treated like a phone company, it would have to meet stricter 911 calling standards and pay into telephone subsidies that keep phone service affordable for poor and rural Americans.

Linksys’ “Wireless-G Broadband Router (WRT54GP2)” with two phone ports is now being bundled with Vonage Holdings Corp.’s voice-over-Internet-protocol service, the two companies said Monday.

The Cisco Systems Inc., unit’s WRT54GP2 includes a “Wireless-G Access Point”; a built-in four-port switch to connect wired-Ethernet devices; a router function so the entire network can securely share a single cable or digital-subscriber-line Internet connection; and two standard telephone jacks, allowing for multiple phone lines.

Feds Expected To Ease Net Phone Rules

November 8, 2004

By Ben Charny

The nation's top telephone regulators are widely expected to decide on Tuesday to further deregulate Internet phone services.

States would be barred from imposing telecommunications regulations on Net phone providers, which treat calls no differently than any other application on the Internet, according to those familiar with the Federal Communications Commission.

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

"This is going to be huge," said Jeff Pulver, co-founder of Free World Dialup, a free PC-to-PC telephone service provider that won exemption from federal and state regulations last year. "Otherwise, anyone who wanted to offer Internet phone services could be subject to 51 different sets of state regulations."
