Woo Hoo! New York VoIP users now have access to 911
RCR Wireless News notes that VoIP users are finally able to access 911 in New York City. The move is huge, according to VoIP providers: "The deployment of the VoIP E911 solution in New York City represents a significant milestone in the evolution of 911, providing VoIP subscribers in New York City with the same level of emergency response as traditional wireline service." From the article in RCR Wireless News, it's apparent that a lot of political maneuvering went into the move. In fact, an exec from VoIP provider Vonage called it "four months of Kabuki Theater" in NYC, as the different parties met and argued and debated.
