After getting sued by all of the major telecommunications providers in rapid succession, Vonage might finally be over and doe with patent issues. They've recently settled a suit from Nortel Networks for a cross-licensing agreement instead of cash, a boon considering the big bucks they've had to shell out to companies like AT&T. Given their cash-poor state and some recent reliability issues, it seems that only a hatred for traditional phone companies and price-gouging by new cable entrants is keeping the provider afloat. I've overall been happy with Vonage despite some of their tech support shortcomings, but I've been a bit spooked by the possibility that they'll pull a SunRocket sometime in the near future.
