Vonage future

A lot of hot debated are going on related to the future of Vonage, VoIP services leader. Some are talking its buyoyt be 'BIG' cable companies such as Time Warner or merger into Cablevision. Vonage's IPO was a big failure and VoIP service providers very attentive. Vonage has bigger customer base than anyone else in VoIP industry. And such a sitauation of a big player is really alarming. But the thing is that it won't affect the growth of VoIP business of other players. Vonage's IPO failure depends upon many factors. Do you remeber MCI's IPO way back in 1972?

Vonage is VoIP's godfather (godfather may be down for a moment, but not out from the game). Vonage is indulged in some wild marketing now a days. Vonage has 95% of their VoIP lines in the United States, leaving tremendous growth opportunities overseas, especially in asian market where there is no market leader (Skype being the market leader in Europe.)

Company is required to provide new services to its customers to get out of this mess. This will not only increase its profitibility but also its customer base.

I just want to inform everyone to a new web site called VoIP Spear ( to measure your QoS. It's the Internet's best and most accessible QoS testing service. It utilizes packet loss, latency, and jitter to calculate a MOS score between 1 (very poor quality) and 5 (excellent quality) for your Internet connection. VoIP Spear runs 24x7x365 so you can always have an idea of what your VoIP QoS is.

VoIP Spear shows your QoS in easy-to-read charts. You can also have it send you email alerts when your quality drops too low.

VoIP Spear ( is free for personal use.

Nice and informative blog. Thanks for sharing such a useful information.
