Vonage Personally, I think it should not be an option. No, they shouldn't make you get

Personally, I think it should not be an option. No, they shouldn't make you get a phone just to have 911...but if you buy a car, they make you wear a seat belt...and if you have a phone, they should make you carry 911.
That's actually not far from the point I was trying to make. However, if a new auto manufacturer decided not to put seat belts in their cars altogether, or stated in the car's owner's manual that seat belts aren't provided with the vehicle unless and until you specifically go through a special sign-up process to obtain them-and even then the seat belts provided aren't as functional or safe as traditional seat belts-intelligent people who want the option to protect themselves would rightly be concerned, and the government would never approve that car for sale to the public.

Well, to take the analogy a step further...assume these cars without seat belts are sold to people who accept the risk. Assume that these buyers are a cross-section of America who saw the ads on TV and thought they could save money by purchasing this car that is so much cheaper than the competition because it is unregulated. Once several hundred thousand of these cars are on the roads, stories start cropping up about kids who weren't able to use a seat belt because their parents never envisioned needing them, or guest passengers who had no way of knowing that, although at first glance they look the same, the seat belts in this car don't protect them like traditional seat belts. It wouldn't be very long before the public demanded for this unregulated vehicle to be regulated. (And I don't want that to happen to the Voip industry, but if the marketplace can't come up with a solution on its own, then the government will, as it is about to, become involved.)

Even if you argue that you are responsible for yourself, you are also responsible for others. In a nation where McDonalds gets sued for hot coffee and robbers have successfully sued homeowners for tripping on broken sprinkler heads or getting locked in garages, as ridiculous as it may sound, I can envision a guest in a Vonage household who wasn't able to reach 911 deciding to sue the homeowner.

I'm just pointing out examples of how your decision to accept a certain level of risk may have unintended consequences that affect more than just the decision maker.

Obviously there are responsible steps you can take to make things safer, but none of them substitute for a true 911 system.

For one thing, my children are quite young (my oldest is three, youngest is one). Hopefully they never need to call 911. But if something happened to my wife, it's possible. Besides the fact that the street we live on has a horrible name that sounds nothing like the way it is spelled. I myself have to spell it letter-by-letter any time I give to someone. But assuming I've taught it to her and she can remember it, I can only imagine how long it would take for an operator to get the address from a three-year-old who still gets confused sometimes when she's excited just trying to count to twenty. All of that is precious time wasted in an emergency. Not to mention even the very real possibility that, because the Vonage call is routed to a "non-emergency" line, the call doesn't get answered in the same priority as calls coming in over the 911 queue.

Yes, certainly many of us with children will look at it differently than others. There is definitely a role for responsible adults to exercise good judgment, and I would hope no parent would forego using seat belts with their kids just as I would hope no parent would choose not to have 911 service. But for those parents who are too ignorant or self-centered to exercise good judgment on their own, I believe the government has a legitimate interest in inducing those parents to provide adequate protection for their children.

Well as long as you're willing to consider the issue from the perspective of public safety at large, you won't get blasted by me, at least. Sorry to hear about your father-in-law. That story points out once again that no system is perfect, which to me underscores the need to eliminate as many potential factors as possible that can go wrong when you're dealing with matters of safety and life and death.

Yesterday the FCC Commissioner said this...

Maybe the FCC will start charging us 911 fees via our monthly Vonage bills...
Would be fine by me.... 911 is well worth it, especially if you have kids.
Agreed. As long as dialing 9-1-1 works I wouldn't mind paying the same fee as I paid
I also agree. That was one of the biggest concerns for my family.
I tested my 911 service about a two weeks ago just to satisfy my curiosity after
Yeah, the problem is that VOIP users shouldn't be getting charged the fee in the
I would pay a fee for 911 service too. Maybe the VoIP services could somehow require
How is the e911 working in Rhode Island?? Is that system really working? Since
I disagree. It's just one more thing for the government to meddle with. I didn't
