FCC 911 deadline for VoIP on Monday

VoIP subscribers that have yet to comply with the FCC's E911 mandate may have their service cut off effective Monday, the agency's deadline for compliance. VoIP services have been emailing their customers to notify them of potential problems with dialing 911. Customers are required to respond to these emails indicating that they understand the issue. Those that do not respond to the emails will likely have their service terminated. Some VoIP service providers, like Time Warner Cable, have said they do not see the need to disconnect any of their users.
