Can Vonage Sign New Customers, or Not?

(Archived in: Online Usability Technology in Plain English)

I have been for some time reporting that I don't believe Vonage will be able to survive the pressures related to all of its legal woes and money problems.

Following are two articles that reference other options, while we wait to see what happens when the smoke clears with the courts.

These are reviews of free, low-cost, or Skype-like services: Ten Alernatives to Skype, and 10-Skype-Alternatives. Gizmo is not great, and I have yet to test Jah Jah and GoogleTalk for lack of a peer-to-peer connection.
