Vonage As for why AT&T or Verizon don't offer e911 yet, I can only speculate that they



As for why AT&T or Verizon don't offer e911 yet, I can only speculate that they are currently implementing the infrastructure changes necessary to begin offering that service. But as regulated carriers, they do have access to the 911 system. Comcast has already said their system will offer e911 to all customers off the bat, as has Charter:

Excerpt from New Telephony, "Charter Launches Cable Voip" dated 09/07/2004:

Charter Communications Inc., the third largest cable operator in the United States with 6.6 million subscribers, has launched formally voice-over-IP services and plans to extend them to all of its serving areas.

The company will offer a primary-line service that includes operator and directory services, as well as support for 911 and CALEA (Communication Assistance to Law Enforcement Agencies) . Actual service packages and prices will vary considerably by geography and are planned to be 10 percent to 20 percent less than the pricing of the local-exchange carrier.

Voip with a Telco Attitude
Charter's approach to voice over IP stresses "toll" quality and traditional services. Barber says the company will not offer what he terms a "nonregulated" service, such as Vonage or Net2Phone do. In developing its primary-line service, Barber says, Charter was mindful of the state regulations that it has been operating under as a provider of TDM voice and will deploy a service that will meet those regulations in each state where it operates.

Charter's service is delivered over "an owned and managed private plant," he says, "so we can maintain quality of service end to end on the phone call. All we are doing with IP is using IP for a transport mechanism in the plant." Where Charter does not have a service area with its own network, it does not use the Internet for long distance delivery. It instead hands off the traffic to a long distance carrier for delivery as TDM voice, thus giving up the cost savings of IP delivery of long distance.

It appears that Charter has adopted this strategy, not just for better voice quality, but also as a stake in the ground that to show that it is delivering a phone service with the legitimacy of traditional telephony. Charter, like most cable operators, is subject to extensive state regulation and must keep its slate clean with those governmental bodies.

"Vonage has nothing to lose," says Barber. "I have a whole set of other businesses that require state certification. If I do something that states disagree with, they can yank that certification and threaten the business." Although indications are that the FCC may be moving to deregulate voice significantly and bar certain kinds of state regulation, "I can't just say that I think regulation is going this way," he concludes.

Other providers are doing it, so if you want to know why AT&T or Verizon aren't, give them a call.
