IP Technology Will Change All The Rules
Carriers, Cablecos To Face Big Pressure From Competitors

October 21, 2004

By Mark Evans

This may be an extreme position but a fundamental part of the telecommunications industry appears to be doomed.
The culprit is Internet-based technology, otherwise known as IP, used to send bits of information along high-speed networks.

While IP technology will provide new and innovative services to residential and business customers, it will also increase competition dramatically and make it hard for carriers and cable companies to grow sales and profits.

This is a harsh take on an industry looking to get back on its feet again, but the impending signs of disaster are becoming more evident. Last week, for example, the U.S. Federal Communications Commission approved rules that will let electrical utilities offer high-speed Internet services. The decision means carriers and cable companies will see more competition at a time when the competitive boundaries between carriers and cablecos are blurring.

If the utilities become serious about providing IP services, it could easily lead to a nasty battle as carriers and cablecos defend their turf while they try to expand into new areas themselves.

The environment is already intense as cablecos such as Rogers Communications Inc. look to get into the telephony market, while carriers move into the digital television business.

Meanwhile, companies such as Vonage Holdings Corp. are capitalizing on the growing popularity of high-speed access to offer services such as Internet telephony, video-on-demand, software-on-demand and streaming music. Many of the new service providers do not need alliances or joint ventures to reach consumers. All they require is a healthy marketing budget and consumers with a high-speed connection to the Net.

 FCC's Chmn. Powell: 'Internet consumer freedom'

Vonage In Print News

Powell Cal: ls For Implementation Of Internet Freedom Principles

October 20, 2004

By Susan Polyakova

BOSTON -- Addressing the VoIP industry in a packed room at the VON conference here, FCC Chmn. Powell stressed that realization of the "Internet consumer freedom" principles he outlined this year and subjecting VoIP to exclusive federal jurisdiction were key to promoting the VoIP revolution.

In an emotional speech interrupted several times by applause, Powell compared migration to IP technology with "the great American Revolutions" and said as he was giving his keynote he had "a sense of how our first President, General George Washington, would have felt standing before the Minutemen that would form the Continental Army."

Powell had been expected to make 2 significant announcements at VON, but industry sources said they seemed to have been omitted in his speech: (1) The FCC is ready to grant the Vonage petition asking to exempt its VoIP service from state regulation. (2) The FCC expects to adopt 4 net neutrality principles, which Powell outlined earlier this year. One industry source said although Powell did refer to the Internet consumer freedoms, he "didn't apply [them] in any specific ways. I am somewhat disappointed that we didn't hear anything bigger, given that it's a major keynote opportunity at VON."

FCC Chief Pushes Internet-Phone Regulations

October 20, 2004

By Jay Wrolstad

FCC chairman Michael Powell is calling for regulations that would grant the federal government greater control over the emerging Internet phone industry. "It's wrong ... to not recognize the potential of VoIP, or to see it through the lens of the old telephone network regulatory model," he argues. story-start"

Citing a need to nurture the emerging, "revolutionary" voice over Internet protocol (VoIP), FCC chairman Michael Powell is calling for regulations that would grant the federal government greater control.

"It is very likely that treatment of VoIP will have some of the farthest reaching consequences of anything the commission will consider in the near future," Powell told participants at this week's Voice on the Net Conference in Boston.

FCC Chief Pushes To Protect Net Phone Services
Keep Subscribers Free Of State Rules, Taxes, Powell Says

October 20, 2004

By Peter J. Howe

The nation's top telecommunications regulator said yesterday he will push -- before the next president is inaugurated -- to protect fledgling Internet telephone services from getting taxed and heavily regulated by the 50 state governments.

Federal Communications Commission chairman Michael K. Powell, in a Boston appearance, said he hopes before Jan. 20 to get the five-member commission to agree that only the FCC can regulate Net phone plans like those offered by Vonage Holdings Corp., AT&T Corp.'s CallVantage, and a host of other services offering low-priced, unlimited phone calls.

Powell said his goal is to keep Internet phone subscribers from having to pay the fees and taxes levied on conventional phone service offered by companies like Verizon Communications Inc. He also wants to prevent state price and service regulation from squelching a fast-growing but still small industry that counts just under 1 million US subscribers.

Vonage Unveils E-911 For VoIP In Rhode Island

October 19, 2004

By Staff

Vonage last week launched Enhanced 911 (E-911) service in Rhode Island, a key development in the survival of the infant VoIP industry. The technology comes from veteran E-911 specialist Intrado [TRDO], which said that both AT&T
[T] and Verizon [VZ] already are in negotiations to use its technology for their VoIP services in Rhode Island as well. Most VoIP users could already call 911,but E-911 services that deliver a customer's location and phone number have not
been available.

Vonage CEO Jeffrey Citron added that, with technical problems solved, the biggest problem now in deploying E-911 for VoIP is the welter of state and local regulations and varying implementations of the service. For now, at least, that means E-911 has to be negotiated and implemented on a state-by-state, or even a town-by-town basis.

Vonage's next implementation, he added, is set for Kings
County, just outside of Seattle.

Boingo, Vonage Join On Wireless VoIP

October 19, 2004

By Jay Wrolstad

Internet-based calling is moving beyond the PC and into the mobile realm, as Boingo Wireless and Vonage join forces to provide voice over Wi-Fi service as a complement to traditional VoIP.

Initially, the companies will collaborate on a service bundle that combines Vonage's SoftPhone offering with Boingo's network of broadband, providing access to Vonage for businesspeople on the move.

FCC Jurisdiction On Internet Telephony Needed: Powell

October 19, 2004

By Brian Blackstone

WASHINGTON -- The Federal Communications Commission should establish federal jurisdiction over voice-over Internet protocol, or VOIP, services such as Vonage, shielding them from state regulations, FCC Chairman Michael Powell said Tuesday.

"The first step in getting policy pointed in the right direction is for the commission to step forward and affirmatively establish jurisdiction over these services," Powell said in prepared remarks to a voice-over Internet conference in Boston.
