Vonage I may be wrong but it is my understanding that 911 system is not owned by any public

I may be wrong but it is my understanding that 911 system is not owned by any public or private company. It is soley operated by either state or municipal governments. Todller you appear to be quite versed in this field so please correct me if I am wrong.

The incumbent carrier and any carrier that leases their access lines have to pay fees to the local 911 entities. I manage the computer systems and networks for Sumner County TN, E911 and the EMS agency. The 911 director and I have been running test on my Vonage home phone to ensure the accuracy of call forwarded. To my surprise every call has been answered in 2-3 rings, even though it is picked up on the non-emergency Administration Lines. These lines are still recorded and usually ( depending on the size of the county) answered by the same dispatcher that take the 911 calls

We also use the Intrado System to query address and route calls to our PSAPS. This is how is works. The 911 office is responsible for maintaining the MSAGS and ESN numbers for every address in their area. They issue the actual address numbers and OK the street names. That information is then put into the intrado system. Only then can a customer request a phone number from any carrier. When a bellsouth customer (incumbent carrier) calls 911 their system queries the intrado system for the proper routing. Bellsouth does not own, or run the 911 system, they merely access the county records through intrado.

Voange is doing everything right as a carrier. They have become members of NENA and appear to be very active in the 911 community. The biggest hurdle in the way of Vonage is the fact that they do not contribute or collect the 911 fees. In my county I believe its about 75 cents a month. That money goes to pay for dispatchers, 911 employees and structural upgrades such as CAD systems. Personally I have no problems paying this fee, nor should anyone else. Just don't screw me with a 100 other fees like the "bells" do. Example, it cost Bellsouth money to install the circuits for a "rotary only" phone, but they continue to charge for the "privilege" of touch tone... Ridiculous

I hear this E911 argument all the time, but what most people don't understand is phase 2 compliant locations rarely get a callers location from cellular services either. We test Sprint, Nextel and Vorizen all the time and they rarely give any more information than the tower location. Customers cut their landlines thinking their Cellular phone with GPS is just the same, but it is clearly not.

I know what the sales person will tell you, but we test. Nextel says it works great if you are outside, but they wont admit that their customers. Fine, I will ask my attacker politely to cut my throat outside so my GPS signal will be communicated as it should. In my opinion they are worse than Vonage. At least Vonage will talk about their short-comings

To sum it all up. This technology will come. I was a paramedic for 13 years and it amazes me that people will worry to death about E911 or phase 2 compliant but wont legibly display their house number. More people have risked serious injury not because of technology, but simply because we cant find the house... Sorry off my soapbox. By the way I love my new Vonage phone.
