Emergency 911 Concerns
911 should also be a concern. In an emergency, you should know that if you dial 911 from your broadband telephone, Emergency Services will know which address to respond to. Not every broadband telephone service offers this and for those that do, it may not be available in every area. Packet8 is one of the services that offers E911 Emergency Service. There is a small extra charge for the service, but this will help ensure your safety in case of an emergency. So if your broadband telephone is going to be your primary residential or office telephone, be sure to read and understand the E911 options.
