VoIP provider Vonage announced that over 90% of their subscribers now have E911 service, linking them directly to 5,800 PSAPs for emergency calls. The company said they added 250 PSAPs to the list in just one month. Vonage subscribers must register their physical address with the company to enable the direct-to-PSAP 911 dialing. Customers who aren’t linked to a PSAP reach a Vonage call center, who then transfers the caller to the appropriate comm center.E-mail this story
