On Seeking Alpha, Venture capitalist Kevin Chou compares Vonage to Pets.Com, writing:
Vonage (VG) is a horrible IPO to invest in. Avoid it like a rabid dog stumbling down your street. The company is nowhere near turning a profit, is spending crazy amounts of money on advertising (Super Bowl ads with sock puppets, anyone?), and is facing some of the most intense competition of any industry I track in the technology space.
