But it appears to be more wishful speculation since the company didn’t touch upon HD voice quality in its annual conference call – the real deal [...]

Vonage reports Q1 positives, EBITDA, line losses slows


Tweaking various parts of its operations and doing a little bookkeeping shuffle, Vonage reported EBIDTA of $21 million for the first quarter of 2009 and GAAP net income of $5 million; about $0.03 per share.
