 FCC: Vonage Is "Interstate" In Nature

Vonage In Print News

Today, The Federal Communications Commission Declared That VoIP Phone Service From Vonage Is "Interstate" In Nature

November 9, 2004

By Staff

TOP STORY - Today, the Federal Communications Commission declared that VoIP phone service from Vonage is "interstate" in nature, meaning that individual states cannot regulate the company as they would a traditional telephone company. The ruling also extended to other companies with VoIP services, such as AT&T, as well as cable operators with VoIP offerings.

FCC Rules VoIP Not Subject To State Regulation

November 9, 2004

By Staff

In a widely anticipated ruling, the Federal Communications Commission today determined that Vonage’s Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) phone service is “interstate” in nature, meaning that individual states cannot regulate Vonage as it would a traditional telephone company, nor regulate the rates, terms and conditions of Vonage’s service.

The decision, though expected, was narrow, with three of the five commissioners asserting that the FCC, rather than the states, has jurisdiction over VoIP.

VOIP Not Subject To State Oversight: FCC

November 9, 2004

By Staff

The Federal Communications Commission granted Vonage Holdings Corp.'s petition to have its VOIP service come under federal jurisdiction, protecting the Internet phone company and others like it from state regulation.

According to a statement by the FCC, Vonage's voice-over-Internet-protocol service "cannot practically be separated into intrastate and interstate components, precluding dual state and federal regulatory regimes." The ruling extends to phone companies such as AT&T Corp. and Verizon Communications as well as to cable companies that offer Internet-enabled services.
Edison, N.J.-based Vonage had filed its petition with the FCC after the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission said its VOIP service was subject to state rate regulations and other rules governing telecommunications companies.

FCC Rules Internet-Based Phone Services Not Subject To State Regulation

November 9, 2004

By Jennifer C. Kerr

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.

Vonage also had asked the commission to certify it as an information service, instead of a telecom company. Such a move would have a profound impact on the industry because it would mean providers of Voice over Internet Protocol, known as VoIP, wouldn't have to pay the taxes and fees that traditional phone companies do. The commission did not rule on that request.

 FCC Expected To Exempt VoIP From State Rules

FCC Expected To Exempt VoIP From State Rules

November 9, 2004

By Paul Davidson

The Federal Communications Commission is expected to vote today to exempt Internet-based phone companies from state regulation, a step that could help boost the emerging services.

But the vote is likely to anger some local officials who say the FCC is usurping local authority.

Among other things, the ruling would mean states could not force Vonage and other Internet phone companies to provide 911 service or comply with local consumer fraud laws, FCC officials told USA TODAY.

Vonage is the leading provider of a new crop of Voice-over-Internet Protocol phone offerings that are serving a fast-growing base of several hundred thousand customers.

Federal Ruling On Web Calling Is Expected To Aid Sector's Growth

November 9, 2004

By Anne Marie Squeo

WASHINGTON -- With new technologies rapidly redefining traditional phone service, federal regulators today are expected to shield emerging Internet-based phone calls from some state regulatory requirements, creating greater incentive for companies big and small to offer similar services.

At its monthly meeting, the Federal Communications Commission is expected to approve a request by Vonage Holdings Inc., a start-up company offering Internet phone plans to consumers, declaring it an interstate service, people familiar with the matter said. That would free Vonage, which has about 300,000 Internet phone lines in use, from numerous state telephone regulations, including certification to offer service, service-quality and reporting requirements, and contributing to state phone-subsidy programs.

"By being interstate, regulation will be exclusively federal," said Jeffrey Citron, chairman and chief executive of Vonage, based in Edison, N.J. "Today, a number of states have tried to assert local jurisdiction, and each has different local standards. That's incredibly problematic for a global company that doesn't know where its customers are at any given time." Vonage's service allows users to take their phone number with them no matter where they are in the world.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Federal Communications Commission on Tuesday approved a petition to insulate Vonage Holdings Corp.'s Internet-based telephone service from certain state regulations.

The agency voted to declare Vonage's Voice Over Internet Protocol telephone service -- which uses a high-speed Internet connection -- interstate in nature, shielding it from state regulations like required certification, rate regulation and certain emergency 911 services.

FCC To Announce VoIP Verdict

November 9, 2004

By Colin C. Haley and Roy Mark

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is expected to rule today that Voice over IP (define) provider Vonage is exempt from state telecom regulations and tariffs.

A ruling in the company's favor would eliminate the need for VoIP providers to negotiate rates with individual state governments -- a process that could impede deployments and jack up customers' bills.

Specifically, the FCC will decide whether Vonage's business should be classified as an interstate information service, which is no different from applications, such as e-mail.

"The [Vonage] petition gives the commission an appropriate opportunity to immediately declare that VoIP services ... are interstate in nature and subject to the commission's exclusive jurisdiction," 61 members of Congress stated in a letter to FCC Chairman Michael Powell.

 VOIP Service To Be Treated As Interstate

Vonage In Print News

Vonage Internet Telephony Service Interstate

November 9, 2004

By Staff

WASHINGTON -- The Federal Communications Commission Tuesday granted a petition by Vonage Holdings Corp. asking that its voice over Internet protocol, or VOIP, service be treated as interstate, putting it under federal jurisdiction.

The ruling shields Internet telephony services like Vonage's from state regulatory oversight, including similar Internet-enabled services provided by cable companies.

"This landmark order recognizes that a revolution has occurred," said FCC Chairman Michael Powell. "What today's decision does is put the Commission in a firm position of responsibility."

In a statement, Vonage Chief Executive Jeffrey Citron said "because the FCC has acknowledged the reality of the Internet - which knows no state boundaries and no borders - more people will enjoy the benefits of Internet phone service."
