Someone asked me, rhetorically, what exit strategy Vonage could possibly have. At the time, I thought the worst of it was probably worthless stock as a result of selling a commoditized product, competing with vertically integrated operators, who have a better link to customers and more downward pricing flexibility than Vonage.
It's worse than that.

Dear Vonage Shareholders and customers,
