It was announced today that more than one million Vonage subscriber lines have E911 service - a feature that automatically associates a physical address with the calling party's telephone number.

ONE MILLION VONAGE® SUBSCRIBER LINES NOW HAVE E911




Vonage Now Provides Enhanced 911 Service to 70% of its Subscriber Lines



Holmdel, NJ, March 29, 2006 - Vonage America, a subsidiary of Vonage Holdings Corp., a leading provider of Internet telephony service, today announced that more than one million subscriber lines now have Enhanced 911 (E911)* service - a feature that automatically associates a physical address with the calling party's telephone number.



In June, the FCC gave Vonage, and all Internet -based phone service companies, 120 days to create an E911 system from scratch, and provide all of its customers, wherever they are in the U.S., with E911 service. In that amount of time, Vonage worked closely with local 911 centers, also known as Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs), across the country to turn on E911 for as many customers as it could. Currently, Vonage continues to test and turn up new PSAPs which are VoIP -ready every day and will continue to do so until Vonage customers have access to E911.



"With one million subscriber lines turned up with E911 service in just 9 months, Vonage is leading the fastest nomadic E911 deployment in telecommunications history," said Jeffrey A. Citron, Vonage's chairman and chief strategist. "Our goal is to get every Vonage customer help when they need it and we will not stop working with the FCC, regulators, Congress and PSAPs until there is equal access to E911 for Vonage's customers."



*In the event Vonage is unable to connect to the 911 system or for customers who are using mobile devices such as Wi -Fi phones or softclients, Vonage offers a national emergency call center which enables customers to get local help when they need it.
