We’ve used Vonage for several years now, and I’ve blogged about it. It’s been really great. Great service, great technology, etc.

Verizon has been sitting on some patents for telephony until Vonage was ripe enough, and then Surprise! popped them out to kill Vonage.

Today Vonage announced that bankruptcy looms. I’ll be VERY sad if it goes away. There really isn’t anything comparable. Comcast has an IP phone system, but it’s VERY expensive, relatively speaking.

BOOO Verizon! Hooray beer!

I developed friends in 3 of the 21 before I moved to FL and cancelled the service. I may rejoin as my business grows.
