October 5, 2007, Newsletter Issue #61: No 911 with Free VOIP

Tip of the Week

One big reason why free VOIP services shouldn't be used as primary phones: 911 won't work. While commercial VOIP providers are required to provide 911 service and obtain an accurate physical address to give to 911 providers, free providers are not under the same requirements. So if you're considering free VOIP, make sure you have another service with a 911 connection.
