 Vonage Adds To The Telecommuter Experience

Making The Case

February 28, 2005

By Mike Drummond

Telework: 24 million Americans work from home. Will the trend spread?

Supreme Court Chief Justice William Rehnquist became the nation's highest profile telecommuter last week, thrusting the issue of working off-site into the spotlight.

Rehnquist, 80, will read transcripts of oral arguments from home as he battles thyroid cancer.

He joins an estimated 24 million Americans who "telework" full or part time, a figure that's remained flat over the past few years, according to data compiled by the International Telework Association and Council. It remains to be seen if Rehnquist's work-from-home routine will jump-start a practice regarded in many quarters as a cure for car pollution, traffic congestion and work-life balance.

Survey results this month of federal workers showed that some agencies are dragging their heels when it comes to telecommuting, even after Congress established incentives for agencies that promote telework options, according to government-focused IT vendor CDW Government.

Telework proponents note that despite uneven job creation through much of this decade, teleworking has remained relatively stable. Any lull is temporary, they say, arguing that advancing high-speed and wireless Internet connectivity, which sparked a wave of telecommuting in the late 1990s, will keep the movement aloft.

"I think we're at the early stages of a ground shift and you're going to see more people work from where ever they can work," says Brooke Schulz, spokeswoman for Vonage.

 Vonage VoIP - A New Age Of Web Dialing

Try New Age Web Dialing

March 7, 2005

By Mary Kathleen Flynn

There's a new kid on the telecom block--courtesy of high-speed Internet connections.

Voice over Internet protocol (VOIP) has been batted about in techie circles for many years. Over the past few years, it has been installed in many large companies to replace traditional telephone systems for internal calls. But within the past year or so, home users have begun to buy VOIP services, using their broadband Internet connections to make phone calls across the same pipes that carry the Web traffic. The start-up Vonage has packaged VOIP for the home user. Vonage's Digital Voice service costs $25 per month for unlimited local and long-distance calls in North America. The company boasts 450,000 customers, with an additional 10,000 coming onboard each week.

 Vonage IPO? VCs Say Vonage Will Go Public This Year

Vonage In Print News

Tech IPOs: Here Comes The Next Wave

March 7, 2005

By Justin Hibbard

It had all the makings of a disaster. As the dot-com frenzy was peaking in 1999, former Netscape Communications Corp. executive Mike McCue founded TellMe Networks Inc. Within a year, the Mountain View (Calif.) maker of voice-application software had raised a huge $232 million in venture capital. But by the time McCue banked the money in October, 2000, the boom had gone bust. Naysayers said TellMe would never return its backers' investment. Five years later, though, the company is poised to do that and more.

Remarkably, almost half of all the venture-backed startups from 1999 and 2000 have survived. A first wave went public last year, including Google Inc. (GOOG ), and now a bigger wave of perhaps a few dozen outfits is set to follow. The best of the bunch, such as TellMe, sport fast-growing revenues and, in many cases, profits.

An old adage in the VC business holds that the best startups are built during bear markets. While the post-boom downturn didn't kill off every flimsy venture, it did impose frugality on many young outfits. "We saw a lot of companies forced to spend less money to acquire more revenue," says Kevin Harvey, a general partner at Benchmark Capital in Menlo Park, Calif. With fewer competitors, smart startups could quickly grab big chunks of their respective markets.

 Vonage Adds To Celebs Goody Bag On Oscar Night

Oh, Goody! Celebs Cash In On Oscar Night

February 23, 2005

By Stephen Schaefer

The famous get richer this weekend.

Every Oscar presenter and winner Sunday night will strut off with a gift bag valued at more than $100,000.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences doesn't want to talk about the contents of the gift bag - it's Oscar's dirty little secret, apparently, that the famous have to be all but bribed to show up. Companies compete to donate their products in the hope of reaping free publicity post-Oscar from the celebs.

So what's in this year's bag?

For starters, an 18-inch baroque Tahitian pearl necklace valued at $3,200; an iXi collapsible bike, $1,289; a year's supply of Vonage broadband telephone service, $500; a Krups kitchen set, $700; a cosmetics case with supplies, $600; cashmere pajamas, $500; a two-night stay for two in Carmel Valley, $2,500; and a day at a Manhattan spa, $3,500.

 Vonage Shakes Up Old Phone System - Brings Service To Remote Parts Of U.S.

Mr. Smith's $10 Lifelines

Until recently, Westhope, N.D., a windswept town six miles from the Canadian border, had 533 people, one bank, one bar, one gas station -- and one federally subsidized phone service.

But seven months ago, Cassidy Sivertson, a 27-year-old who runs a computer business out of his home here, bailed out of the subsidized plan, which was costing him about $165 a month. Instead, he signed up for a new Internet-based service from Vonage Holdings Inc. Now, the subsidy-free Vonage phone service, a high-speed Internet connection and an additional toll-free line cost just $60 a month. "It surprises me we can have this type of service out here," says Mr. Sivertson, who says several of his friends have made a similar change thanks to him.

Mr. Sivertson's new setup illustrates how competition and technology are threatening a big shake-up in a program that has played a major role in the phone business for nearly a century. Today dubbed the federal Universal Service Fund, the $6.4 billion program assesses all phone customers a monthly surcharge to help cover the higher cost of providing service in thousands of isolated places like Westhope. The overriding goal is to make sure phone service is "universal," so that everyone in the country has access to it -- no matter where they live.

Critics say the program is a throwback to a time before satellites, cellphone towers and other high-tech gear made it possible to provide phone and Internet service to far-flung towns. Technological changes are also slowly starving the fund. Since it doesn't apply to new Internet-based phone services that most major companies are rolling out, people like Mr. Sivertson aren't required to kick in anything toward the fund. When it released its budget this month, the Bush administration disclosed that the USF will incur $200 million more in obligations than it expects to take in during the fiscal year ending Sept. 30.

 Vonage Takes Part In Oscar Hand Out

Vonage In Print News

Oscar Isn't The Only Gold Handed Out

February 21, 2005

By Karen Thomas

Celebrity "gifting" — handing out freebies at awards shows and other events in hopes that the products will be photographed or mentioned in the media — is a booming business.

And now businesses that donate to celebrity gift bags are trying to ensure that their products end up in the hands of A-list celebs, not in the closets of fourth-tier Hollywood hangers-on.

Gift bags are so hot that many companies are creating advertising divisions to focus solely on celebrity placements, says Karen Wood, president of Backstage Creations, which specializes in creating celebrity gift bags.

Wood says her clients are becoming a lot more discerning. They "want insurance that we are passing it hand-to-hand to a celebrity, and it's not going to a publicist's office where it will sit with 15 or 20 other baskets."

Ma Bell's Kids Will Live On The Net

February 28, 2005

By Steven Levy

We're seeing the phone call turn into just another Internet tool, like e-mail or instant messaging.

Have telephone companies gone off the hook? In the last few weeks, AT&T has been gobbled by SBC and MCI snapped up by Verizon. It's like some toddler upchucked his alphabet soup.
Part of this ferment comes from the telco struggle to deal with new technologies, but the most disruptive change of all—voice over Internet protocol (VoIP), pronounced by geeks as "v-oy-p"—is only beginning to make its mark. "Telephone service used to be based on a huge infrastructure of high-priced equipment," says Peter Sisson, a former Bell Labs researcher turned entrepreneur. "And now it's just software."

Think about that. All those costly switching stations and all those miles of wire and fiber optic trumped by the ability to plug your telephone into the Internet, where voice is as easily transmitted as e-mail, iTunes songs and pictures of Teri Hatcher. That's why a company called Vonage can sell 400,000 subscribers unlimited long distance service for $25 a month, simply by letting them plug their phones into broadband Internet instead of phone jacks. And that's certainly why the Swedish mavericks who created the Kazaa file-sharing service could use the same kind of digital bucket-brigade-style model to come up with an Internet peer-to-peer-based phone service called Skype.

Making Phone Calls Over The Net

February 21, 2005

By Staff

Telephone calls made over an internet connection are predicted to be the next revolution in telecommunications. Cheaper broadband costs and user friendly software is helping users to start making Voice over IP (VoIP) calls, with a number of companies offering products.


The premise of Vonage is simple - plug your existing phone or a second handset into a specially adapted router and start making phone calls over the internet.

Vonage charges £9.99 a month, and for that price local and national calls are all free, while calls to mobiles and international numbers are much cheaper.

Features such as voice mail, call waiting etc are all included in the price.

Poll Sees Big Year For Internet Phone Technology

February 18, 2005

By Martha McKay

Internet-based telephone technology will be a key growth area this year for New Jersey telecommunications companies.
That's according to industry executives polled recently by the New Jersey Technology Council and Stevens Institute of Technology.

Results of the 2005 New Jersey Telecommunications Industry Forecast were released Thursday at an event hosted by Basking Ridge-based AT&T.

Of the 101 New Jersey-based telecommunications executives who responded to the poll, 52 percent listed Internet-based phone technology, also called Voice over Internet Protocol, as the "most important growth area" this year.

VoIP is a method of sending phone calls as bits of data, as opposed to traditional circuit-based calling technologies.

Phone companies have rushed into the small but growing market, and many of the companies that offer VoIP to consumers are based in New Jersey, including Edison-based Vonage and North Brunswick-based VoicePulse.

Landlines May Die To Computer Technology

February 18, 2005

By Tom Howell Jr

OIT considers plan to send calls using Internet connection.

The Office of Information Technology has assembled a committee to look into refreshing the campus telecommunications system and explore the possibility of sending phone conversations along computer lines.

The committee, consisting of representatives elected by deans and vice presidents, is looking into the installation of Voice-over-Internet Protocol, OIT spokeswoman Amy Ginther said. VoIP allows people to make telephone calls over a broadband Internet connection rather than a regular phone line. The switch would save money because calls would go over existing computer connections, making phone lines unnecessary.
