Vonage CEO Jeffrey Citron today urged the VoIP community to get
involved politically by contacting Congress and urging legislation
that is favorable to VoIP.

Citron says Vonage is looking to expand its service to new territories
in the coming year, referring specifically to Mexico City and London,
although he said the company also is looking at Europe and Asia as
potential areas of growth.

Speaking at the Voice on the Net (VON) conference in San Jose, Calif.,
Citron told a large audience during the keynote address, "All of
you should write your Congresspersons and let them know that you want
a network bill of rights to protect your right to use communications
like Vonage (Holdings Corp.)."

Citron was referring to the broadband bill of rights articulated by
departing FCC Chairman Michael Powell. Powell has advocated that
consumers have the right to connect any device to the network that
does not harm the network; be able to download and run any application
that is legal and paid for; and be able to access any legal content;
and get information about the features of any service.
