July 6, 2007, Newsletter Issue #49: Remember to Set Up 911 Services

Tip of the Week

If you're setting up VOIP in your home, please make sure to set up 911 services. This is especially important if the VOIP phone is going to be your only phone. Some providers, like Vonage, require you to give the physical location of your VOIP network when you set it up over the Web. Others leave it up to you. And some services, like Skype, don't offer 911 services. This is important because VOIP is a virtual service, not tied to any one place. Therefore, traditional 911 services won't work -- unless you inform your VOIP provider where you are located.
