Vonage VoIP Forum Digest

May 30, 2006

By Daniel Connor

Welcome to today's edition of the Vonage VoIP Forum Digest. In the news, we'll catch up on a rise in Vonage's stock price, as well as some interesting viewpoints from a veteran technologist that doesn't sound too surprised about that. We'll see just how close a Vonage co-sponsored race car came to winning the Indy 500, and also . We'll also go over Vonage VoIP Forum threads on Vonage service over satellite Internet, and adding a second Vonage line. And because we didn't have an issue Monday on account of Memorial Day here in the U.S., we'll announce our Vonage Forum Member of the Week today.

 Vonage Applauds The U.S. Treasury Department for Abolishing the Federal Excise Tax on Long-Distance Phone Calls

Vonage Press ReleasesTreasury Department Disconnects FET and VOIP

HOLMDEL, N.J., May 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Vonage America Inc., a leading provider of broadband telephone services, today applauded the Treasury Department for ending the decades-old Federal Excise Tax (FET) on long distance phone service.

The company's interpretation of the ruling is that it also applies to voice over IP services such as Vonage's and in accordance with the ruling, the company intends to stop collecting the 3% fee and aid customers in applying for their refunds.

"This ruling is good news for everyone who believes in open and low-cost communications," said President of Vonage America Inc., Michael Tribolet. "FET was originally imposed as a luxury tax to fund the Spanish-American War over 100 years ago. In the era of flat-rate service packages and bundles, Vonage customers shouldn't be subject to this tax and we commend the Treasury Department for freeing our customers from it."

Vonage VoIP Forum Digest

May 26, 2006

By Daniel Connor

Welcome to today's edition of the Vonage VoIP Forum Digest. 

First, I have a couple of announcements. First, the Vonage Stock Forum is now open for everyone to read. You may know that I started the Vonage Stock Forum because of the Vonage IPO and then the start of Vonage trading on the New York Stock Exchange. For the first few days, the Vonage Stock Forum was accessible only to registered Vonage Forum Members. Now, I've decided to open it to everyone. So here's the link to the Vonage Stock Forum. But, remember, of course, in order to post you need to be a Vonage Forum Member- just like you need to be in order to post in any other sections of the Forum. So join up! 

Second, just before Midnight Eastern time Thursday night, we passed 23 million page views on the Vonage Forum since we started in March, 2003. Obviously the Vonage stock news has given us a lot of page views- more than 70,000 on Wednesday, as a matter of fact. It took us only 16 days to get from 22 million to 23 million page views. That's more tan 60,000 page views a day- counting a couple of weekends when many of us are away from our PCs. That's about 2,500 page views an hour, 45 page views a minute, and sheesh- almost one page view a second! No wonder why I've felt compelled to do these server upgrades

OK, enough about tooting our own horn.

In the news, we'll catch up with how a Vonage-sponsored racing team is looking at a big event this Sunday. We'll also look at Vonage's New York Stock Exchange trading day on Thursday.   Today is Friday, time for our popular In the Blogs feature. We'll also go over a Vonage VoIP Forum thread from a Member with something to say about the quality of his Vonage service.

Vonage VoIP Forum Digest

May 25, 2006

By Daniel Connor

Welcome to today's edition of the Vonage VoIP Forum Digest.

I noticed that a record number of new Members have joined the Vonage Forum in the last couple of days. On Tuesday, we more than doubled our previous one-day record of new Members with 186 new enrollers. Then, yesterday, w picked up 182. I am guessing that many of these Members joined up because of our Vonage Stock Forum- the place to go for news and discussions about Vonage stock- which is now being publicly traded. Unlike all other sections of the Vonage Forum, the Vonage Stock Forum is open to registered Vonage Forum Members only. 

Later in this Digest I will tell you how to register. It's free and quick.

But let's get down to the news, and the story of the day. Or the week. Or the month. Or, for that matter, the year. That of course, is the fact that Vonage stock experienced its first day of  being publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange yesterday. We'll also go over a couple of Vonage VoIP Forum threads about router issues, and get this- about using Vonage to call in and cast their vote on last night's season-ending episode of "American Idol."

Welcome to today's edition of the Vonage VoIP Forum Digest. 

First, I have a couple of big announcements.

On Saturday, we picked up our 27,000th Vonage Forum Member. That new Member is jjj. So welcome to the Vonage Forum, jjj. We look forward to reading your posts!

Second, in preparation for the big day (probably tomorrow) when Vonage stock goes on sale, I've started the Vonage Stock Forum. To read this Forum, you'll have to be a Vonage Forum Member. Yet another reason to Register! But once you do, you can start, join in on, or just read what I am sure will be a growing number of interesting threads about the Vonage IPO and Vonage Directed Share Program. In fact, I

In the news, we'll find out about this weekend's Indy 500 time trials featuring a famous father-son racing team co-sponsored by Vonage, and also tell you where fans will be able to meet one of them this Thursday. Because we had a special Vonage Forum Digest edition on Friday about the Vonage IPO and Directed Share Program, our In the Blogs feature that usually runs on Friday runs today instead. We'll also go over a Vonage VoIP Forum thread about a thorny router issue.

Vonage VoIP Forum Digest

May 19, 2006

By Daniel Connor

Welcome to today's edition of the Vonage VoIP Forum Digest. Because there is so much talk about the Vonage IPO next week, I decided to make this issue a special edition about the Vonage IPO and the Directed Share Program.  That means we'll run our Friday In The Blogs feature on Monday. 

By far the biggest news about Vonage is the upcoming Vonage IPO next week, and the Directed Share Program that lets many Vonage customers buy stock in Vonage at the IPO price. I have been reading lots of blogs, online articles, news stories and of course, Vonage Forum posts about this. 

Of course you know that while the Vonage Forum is not affiliated with Vonage in any way, we are the largest independent resource about Vonage, and watch the company and its technology very closely. I know that a number of you members are curious what I, the administrator of the Vonage Forum, think about this IPO and the DSP. So I am going to tell you here.

I should tell you that I am personally looking forward to this IPO. 

Now I have been reading some negative opinions about this IPO, in newspapers and on blogs I respect. But to those writers, I would say that to those writers who criticize Vonage's service to make a point that the IPO might not do to well, that only a fraction of the Vonage customer base is complaining, a small fraction (we have 27,000 members,) with only a fraction of them posting negative comments. And that's out of 27,000 Vonage Forum members, and 75,000 posts (which we reached on Thursday), and an even bigger - far bigger- universe of 1.5 million Vonage customers. 

I have also been reading stuff in the blogs from some bloggers who try to compare Skype and their promotions with the Vonage service. While I know many Skype users, and have even tried Skype a bit myself, most Skype users would admit that comparing Skype and Vonage is like comparing apples and oranges. Vonage is a VoIP provider, more like a phone company than a company like Skype that still specializes for the most part in PC to PC calling.

Now I want to tell you about some Vonage Forum posts that I believe back up the points I am making here.......

On this area of The Vonage IPO Thread,  you will find a great post by Vonage Forum Member pguy40, along with my response.

First to what pguy40 writes:

1. Why was it bad for Vonage to contact customers via email, voicemail, and postal? (I got one of each). How else could they have communicated the offer to customers? and why does the way they did it reflect badly on Vonage? If someone wants to offer me a legitimate financial opportunity should they not contact me? Should I read their minds????

2. Skype is nothing like Vonage. Vonage can be used by anyone with little technical knowledge and doesn't need a computer to be used or even on. Vonage is the most recognized name in VoIP and has the best reputation in VoIP. They are in every office supply store and every consumer electronics store. They are THE name in VoIP.

3. Comments on Vonage customer service are unfounded in my experience. I have two accounts, home and business and in the last two years have had to contact them 2x. Both times they solved my problem within minutes. I have noticed no downtime in the last year at all.

4. You will find a lot of negative articles before any tech IPO, SEC rules do not allow the company to respond. Remember all the bad press before Google's IPO? Look how that turned out.

As for me- I'm in.

Well, that's what pguy40 writes. Want to know what I wrote back- and what I think?

I answered pguy40 by writing that I agree with everything he has stated and have a few comments to add.

I am remarkably surprised by the number of new members who have joined the forum in the past few days only to post what I call "Bash -N- Dash" posts, almost as if it is an organized effort to deface the Vonage IPO.

Many companies stand to collectively lose Billions of dollars at the hands of Vonage's success, every RBOC, long distance carrier and dozens of VoIP companies. This is something to consider as you read the negative press.

Oh, and I am in also, all the way. 

Then blakadher, a former Vonage Forum Member of the Week, posted a question in which he wanted me to clarify what I meant when I wrote "all the way."

Here's what I wrote:

"I am in for 5000 shares and as I stated, I would be for 10,000 had I known of this opportunity before hand. I believe in this IPO and that is coming from someone who has read every single thread on this site, negative and positive. I have also met the executive management. Citron has put together a team of leaders, the best of the best. These are not the kind of guys that hang around a sinking ship, if you know what I mean.

"So, is this the right move for you?," I then asked. Maybe/maybe not. But it is for me and I am happy Vonage gave me an "in" on the IPO purchase."
