That's a pretty lame sales tactic. He should have pointed out that
Cox's service has real 911, real operators, real battery backup so it
works when the power fails, and includes a real phone book listing.

Poking at their web site, I'm surprised to see that they don't bundle
long distance so if you don't like their not particularly cheap LD
service, you can use someone else's.
