VoIP cost to rise due to 911 services

Posted on Sunday, May 22 2005 @ 02:56 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Last week the FCC ruled VoIP providers must give their users full access to emergency services within 120 days.

Analysts say the new ruling will probably rise costs.
"Many VoIP services offer no access to the country's E-911 system, which also saves money. By fall, however, they will have to buy access to the E-911 system, which is owned and supported by local phone companies, Stofega said."
It is expected that this new rule will increase the VoIP subscription cost with a few dollars a month. More info at TwinCities
