Just curious, does anyone know if e911 or ACR wil be in place in the next few months? I've been with Vonage for over a year and it "seems" like they are standing still in the Voip market. I've looked at Packet8 and Comcast to compare options, etc.

Also, I don't know what this "really" means, but Packet 8 says:

"Since Packet8 E911 calls are routed as emergency traffic, callers should expect to receive the same response from emergency personnel that they would receive from traditional 911 service, subject to the capabilities of the local PSAP. Packet8's E911 service eliminates the need for operators to ask Packet8 callers their location, which could be vital in cases where the caller may not be able to verbally communicate.

The FCC Mandate
On June 3rd, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) mandated that all Internet phone service providers interconnected to the public switched telephone network offer E911 as a standard element of their residential and business offerings. Currently, Packet8 E911 support is an optional service for which subscribers register and pay nominal fees, however, we are in the process of provisioning this service to all customers."

Well, AFAIK, E911 is coming for ALL Voip companies.

As for ACR, I would definitely not hold my breath. Although I am sure someone from Vonage will be happy to let you know that it is coming... soon. Rolling Eyes

I'm sorry, but everyone seems hung up on this E911 topic and on ACR which is known and discussed. I really wouldn't pay for E911 service after reading their disclaimer:

The FCC has also required Internet phone service providers to inform subscribers that, under certain circumstances, when 911 is dialed from a phone connected to an Internet phone service, E911 service may not be available, or the E911 service may be in some way be limited by comparison to traditional E911 service. These circumstances include:

When the location of your Packet8 device is at a physical address other than the one you listed when you activated your account.
When a subscriber’s broadband phone device fails or is not configured properly.
When there is an electrical power outage, service outage or suspension/disconnection of Packet8 service due to billing or other issues.
When there is a delay in the provision of Packet8 service ("dial tone") at the physical address provided at the time of account activation.
When a change of address has been reported, but not yet been updated on the Packet8 account.
When the local PSAP receiving Packet8 E911 emergency service calls does not have a system configured for E911 services that enables the operator to capture and/or retain automatic number or location information.
When due to technical factors in network design and/or in the event of network congestion on the Packet8 network, a Packet8 E911 call may produce a busy signal or experience unexpected answering wait times and/or take longer to answer than 911 calls placed via traditional telephone networks.

The last sentence in the disclaimer seals the case. It isn't ready yet.

This method isn't much different from what I see on my Vonage service and I don't pay for it. The best 911 is to have the local emergency numbers posted on your phone as well. Voip is a new technology just as cell phones once were. The solutions are coming, but if you want to take advantage of the situation then there are limitations no matter what spin you put on the wording.

As for ACR, I can wait. Caller ID spoofing needs to be solved and/or outlawed. Or I can spend less than $100 to get an external box and get all the stuff I like about Vonage.

I'm sorry, but I don't see the advantage to switch to a financially troubled company right now.
