  2. From the horses mouth:

    Due to a software upgrade in process, some customers may be experiencing sporadic difficulty placing or receiving calls at this time.

    Customers experiencing difficulty can expect the problem to improve throughout the evening.

    We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

  3. I agree – i think the Vonage outage shows that the network is going to be critical. I have a feeling that they are growing too fast and the networks aren’t keeping pace. i do like the fact that at least they are starting to communicate.

  4. Pretty weird.

    I’m staying in L.A, where I have my NYC area code Vonage TA plugged into a Comcast Cable LAN alongside my parents Los Angeles area code Vonage TA.
    Their service went dead on Friday, but mine stayed up. Tried to check their website for a network alert, but their site could not reached.
    I called support (from my phone) and actually got through to someone rather quickly (very surprised). Unfortunately, he could only barley make out what I was saying. He said entire words of mine were coming through out of order and/or backwards (!). He sounded just fine on my end. We terminated the call and he called me right back. He did some remote fiddling around with my folks adapter, and with mine, and eventually everything came back up, and smoothed out.

  5. Had the service for almost a month.
    Have had no problems untill today ,poor voice quality,static . other than that it has been really good .It was a easy install,plugged it into my cable modem ,I had dial tone within minutes.
    I have not canceled my old phone line yet.Vonage gave me the first month free and no activation charge,so I will try it a while to see how I like it.

  8. I live in Mazatlan, Mexico, where my wife and I both work and rely on Vonage. She’s an accountant who needs to communicate with clients. I’m a journalist. The system has been down since Tuesday and everyone here who uses Vonage is screwed – and there are a lot who rely on it in their work. When we call out we can hear the other party but they can’t hear us, either at all or in a patchy way. Many of us have sent e-mails to Vonage and at first were getting boilerplate reponses. Now we don’t even get those. There will be a lot of people looking for other options if they can’t get this fixed soon.

  9. Several Vonage customers in Mazatlan, Mx have been down since 7pm 03.08. It seems to be a “send” issue. You can hear the party you call perfectly but they cant hear you – or you just get a rapid busy.

    There has been no response to emails requesting help. Phone calls to cust serv go unanswere. No posting to customers to make you aware of the problem.

    Don’t care what the fare is, it’s no way to run a railroad.

  10. i agree that their customer service is something that needs to be fixed right away and if they don’t whatever good will they have in the market is just going to vanish into thin air. spending mega millions cannot help regain your reputation. vonage needs to learn that.

  11. I keep calling my husband, who also has Vonage. I can hear him crystal clear, but he can’t make out a word I say. I tried leaving a voicemail, and listened to it. It was just one long period of silence.
