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.

October 19, 2004

By Phillip Brit

Boingo Wireless, a Santa Monica, CA-based Wi-Fi hot spot operator and aggregator, and Vonage Holdings Corp., a leading broadband telephony provider in North America, announced a relationship that teams two industry innovators in an effort to simplify voice over Wi-Fi services and make them more accessible to customers.

In the first phase of their partnership, mobile travelers using the Xpro SoftPhone, from Xten, can access the Vonage service from almost any Internet connected personal computer. This offering targets business travelers, enabling them to make and take phone calls at Boingo's network of 11,000 airports, cafes, and hotels around the world.

Boingo doesn’t disclose its number of users; however it does have partnerships with MCI, Earthlink, Infonet Services Corp, Fiberlink, and Telecom Italia whose users have access to the Boingo network. Boingo has 4100 hot spots in North and South America, 6,200 in Eurpoe and 520 in the Asia/Pacific region.

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.

Matter of Choice

For Vonage, a provider of VoIP with a growing audience, the partnership means customers now can obtain service at some 11,000 airports, hotels and cafes worldwide with Boingo Wi-Fi access points.

"This will help our customers connect faster on any type of broadband access," Vonage spokesperson Mitchell Slepian told NewsFactor. Wi-Fi connectivity represents a milestone on the VoIP road map, he said, following on the success of cellular wireless technology.

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.

Remember When Your 14.4kbps Modem Made You The Coolest Kid On The Block?

October 19, 2004

By Dave Mock

Remember when your 14.4kbps modem made you the coolest kid on the block? You could blow away all those 9.6kbps wannabes and download the latest ASCII battleship game in hours. Oh, how the world has changed.

Upping the ante on your gaming buddies now means you'll be opting for one of dozens of new broadband offerings that offer an astounding 100 times the speed of your old Hayes dinosaur. In the last few weeks, a slew of announcements from major wireless and telecom players has opened up a plethora of offerings that allow one to not only consume bits faster than ever before but also to do it while mobile. Now that is cool.

Wireless giants Verizon Communications (NYSE: VZ) and Sprint PCS (NYSE: FON) started the show earlier this year by announcing a nationwide push to outfit their mobile networks with Qualcomm's (Nasdaq: QCOM) EV-DO technology, giving consumers 300-500kbps over the same reception area of your wireless phone.

Boingo Wireless And Vonage Partner To Deliver VoIP Via Wi-Fi Hotspots

October 19, 2004

By Gareth Williams

Boingo Wireless and Vonage Holdings have formed a partnership to deliver VoIP services to customers using Boingo's Wi-Fi hotspots and Vonage's softphone client supplied by Xten Networks.

Both companies have agreed to co-market the service bundle, enabling personal computer users running Windows 98SE/NT/ME/2000/XP/MAXOS-X to make VoIP calls at any of Boingo's hotspot sites.

Significance: Making Vonage's service available in remote locations makes it more attractive to users. Although a laptop is not the most practical device to make calls on, it does provide added flexibility if one is hooked up to a hotspot. A lack of hotspot coverage will curtail access and flexibility - in the US as of today (19 October 2004), Boingo has a network of 3,429 hotspots and 11,000 globally.

"Our ability to plug the Vonage solution into Boingo's massive Wi-Fi network makes our service even more useful to customers," said Jeffrey Citron, president and CEO of Vonage Holdings Corp.
