 Vonage Blocking - Telephone Company Has Agreed To Pay A $15,000 Fine

Vonage In Print News

North Carolina Telephone Company Has Agreed To Pay A $15,000 Fine

March 4, 2005

By Staff

North Carolina telephone company has agreed to pay a $15,000 fine and to stop blocking the ability of users to use voice-over-IP calling services (this service gives an opportunity to call from Internet, using their Internet Service Provider).

Madison River Communications, which operates several rural phone companies throughout the Southeast and Midwest, had blocked more than 200 customers from using a Voice-over-IP service run by Vonage Holdings.

In some cases this meant that users who had disconnected their traditional phones and were using only Vonage connection, could make emergency calls.

FCC Fines Telecom Co For Internet Phone Blocking

March 3, 2005

By Brian Blackstone

WASHINGTON -- The Federal Communications Commission on Thursday fined rural telecommunications and Internet services company Madison River Communications LLC $15,000 for blocking Internet phone service.

In addition to paying the penalty, Madison agreed not to block voice over Internet protocol, or VOIP, phone traffic from providers such as Vonage Holdings Corp.

Vonage notified the FCC of the issue last month.

"We saw a problem, and we acted swiftly to ensure that Internet voice service remains a viable option for consumers," said FCC Chairman Michael K. Powell.

Though the dollar amounts are small and the blocking affected only a few hundred Vonage customers, the FCC's decision has much larger symbolic impact. VOIP providers like Vonage depend on other companies' DSL and cable platforms to provide their service, which offers nationwide unlimited long-distance service for a flat fee. Thursday's action is the FCC's first on Internet phone blocking.

"The good news here is this sends a clear signal to the broadband industry that the FCC will not tolerate interfering with your right to communicate with one another," Jeffrey Citron, Vonage's chief executive, told Dow Jones Newswires.

Telco Agrees To Stop Blocking VoIP Calls

March 3, 2005

By Declan McCullagh

A North Carolina telecommunications company accused of deliberately blocking Internet phone traffic has reached a deal with federal regulators to halt the controversial practice.

The Federal Communications Commission said Thursday that Madison River Communication will "refrain from blocking" VoIP, or voice over Internet Protocol, calls and will pay a $15,000 fine to the government.

"We saw a problem, and we acted swiftly to ensure that Internet voice service remains a viable option for consumers," FCC Chairman Michael Powell said in a statement. The consent decree prevents Madison River from VoIP blocking for 30 months.

Based in Mebane, N.C., Madison River reported $194.4 million in revenue for the 2004 calendar year from 120,649 residential voice subscribers, 60,563 business voice subscribers, and 39,562 DSL customers. The company has filed a registration statement for a proposed initial public offering.

VoIP provider Vonage confirmed that Madison River was the broadband provider it complained to the FCC about earlier this month, leading to the FCC's investigation.

Vonage Victorious In Port Blocking Case

March 3, 2005

By Staff

A couple weeks ago we reported that ISP Madison River Communications was blocking ports used for VoIP applications. Vonage filed suit and has walked away a winner.

Last month, the Enforcement Bureau issued a Letter of Inquiry (“LOI”) to Madison River Communication, LLC initiating an investigation about allegations that Madison River was blocking ports used for VoIP applications, thereby affecting customers’ ability to use VoIP through one or more VoIP service providers.

The ruling concluded that Madison River is required to make a voluntary payment to the United States Treasury in the amount of fifteen thousand dollars ($15,000.00). In order to resolve and terminate the Investigation, the Bureau also requires that Madison River shall not block ports used for VoIP applications or otherwise prevent customers from using VoIP applications.

 Free Vonage Service For Oscar Presenters and Performers

Vonage In Print News

Wired Report

March 3, 2005

By Staff

Fatigue was the word frequently heard around this year’s Oscars, according to an article in last week’s New York Times. And I could not agree more. The award shows have been squeezed into a one month time period, making it impossible to savor each one. And there are no longer surprises. How many times can you see the same person win the same award and not be fatigued by it?

This was one of the reasons why the irreverent Chris Rock was chosen to host and it was just about the best part of the whole show last Sunday night (with the exception of Joan and Melissa, of course). Despite the reviews which have been slamming him all week, I think he did an amazing job. He was hilarious when he interviewed black moviegoers who loved the Wayans brothers’ comedy 'White Chicks' but hadn't seen best-picture nominees, 'The Aviator' or 'Finding Neverland.' His Bush bashing jokes were brilliant. And his jab at Jude Law as a second-rank star was a breath of fresh air. The very significant Sean Penn who “claims” to hate being the center of the media’s attention, had no problem speaking up with the pompous comment that Jude Law 'is one of our finest actors,' before he announced Hilary Swank as best-actress winner for 'Million Dollar Baby.'

 FCC Slaps Fine On Blocker Of Vonage VoIP

FCC Slaps Fine On VoIP-Blocking Telecom

March 3, 2005

By Roy Mark

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) today fined a North Carolina telecom holding company $15,000 for blocking Voice over IP (define) calls to their customers.

In addition to the fine, Madison River Communications of Mebane, N.C., agreed to refrain from blocking VoIP traffic and to put measures into place to ensure that such blocking won't happen again.

"We saw a problem, and we acted swiftly to ensure that Internet voice service remains a viable option for consumers," outgoing FCC Chairman Michael K. Powell said in a statement. "The industry must adhere to certain consumer protection norms if the Internet is to remain an open platform for innovation."

The FCC action came after VoIP providers Vonage and Nuvio complained to the agency broadband providers are blocking or degrading their Internet telephony services. In public comments, neither Vonage nor Nuvio named the providers blocking their traffic.

 FCC: Block Vonage And Get Fined $15K

FCC Fines N.C. Provider $15K For Blocking Vonage

March 3, 2005

By Paul Kapustka

So who's the guilty party that was blocking Vonage's Voice over IP service? A North Carolina-based service provider, which on Thursday agreed to pay a $15,000 fine for its actions and pledged not to block VoIP traffic in the future.

The Federal Communications Commission announced Thursday that it had reached a $15,000 consent decree with Madison River Communications, a Mebane, North Carolina service provider that calls itself the "17th largest phone company in the US," with "234,204 connections in service."

According to the FCC, Madison River pledged to "refrain from blocking VOIP traffic and ensure that such blocking will not recur." FCC chairman Michael Powell, who has made his vision for "Internet Freedoms" a very public crusade, said the decree supports his views that the Internet should remain open to all types of traffic.

"In my view, the surest way to preserve 'Net Freedom' is to handle these issues in an enforcement context where hypothetical worriers give way to concrete facts and -- as we have shown today -- real solutions," said Powell in a statement released by the FCC. "The industry must adhere to certain consumer protection norms if the Internet is to remain an open platform for innovation," he added.

 Vonage IPO? Citron, CEO Of The Pioneer VoIP Firm Gives No Hints

Vonage In Print News

Vonage Phones In

March 3, 2005

By Staff

Vonage CEO Jeffrey Citron stopped by yesterday. For a mile-a-minute New York talker, he was deafeningly silent on the subject of his company's future financing plans. (We mentioned Vonage as a potential IPO candidate last week.) But he gave us an update on his four-year-old company, which, for those who don't know, is the largest provider of Internet phone service, also known as VOIP (voice over Internet protocol).

By my back-of-the-envelope calculation, if Vonage keeps adding customers at its current pace, it could earn as much as $223 million in revenue this year, which would more than double its revenues last year. That's a lot of dough, and it explains a crazy rumor I heard recently about Vonage's valuation. ($1 billion. Citron wouldn't comment.)

 Vonage Sees Future In Wireless VoIP

Reuters Summit - Vonage Sees Future In Wireless

March 1, 2005

By Justin Hyde

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Vonage Holdings Corp., the largest seller of consumer Internet-based telephone service, said on Tuesday it was exploring ways to allow its customers to use the service over cellular phone networks.

Vonage Chairman and Chief Executive Jeffrey Citron said the company had held talks for roaming agreements with all the major cellular companies, but the technological hurdles remained high.

Vonage's customers plug phones into specially designed Internet adapters that convert voice calls into data sent over the Web, a technology that Vonage sees as more efficient than dedicated voice lines that traditional phones use.

Later this year, Vonage will offer a telephone handset with Vonage software that transmits calls over Wi-Fi wireless Internet connections. Citron said that while the handset was not meant to replace a cell phone, Vonage would eventually like to have such handsets be able to use cellular networks.
