Vonage doomed?

This totally sucks, as a Vonage user, I’m wondering what will happen to Vonage. I’ve saved a lot of money on my telephone usage: average $21 compared to $55+ with Sprint (now Embarq).

U.S. District Judge Claude Hilton approved Verizon’s request curtailing the service today, sending Vonage shares to a record low. Hilton, in Alexandria, Virginia, said he won’t sign the order before a hearing in two weeks on Vonage’s request for a stay. A jury found March 8 that Vonage infringed three patents and said it should pay Verizon $58 million.


If Vonage has to shutdown, I might have to go with
TimeWarner cable’s digital phone or try sunrocket assuming they don’t have the same patent issue.

I hope Vonage can figure this out even if it means a rate increase, as I’m still under $55 per month.
