In a previous post today, I surmised why SBC seems to be reluctant to
work with Vonage to devise E-911 solutions.

Now, SBC has their say. Spokesperson Wes Warnock just emailed me to
clarify their position on this issue:

"First, SBC recognizes that there are no shortcuts when it comes to
public safety. That said, SBC does not own the 9-1-1 system. Public
safety agencies do.

"Vonage needs to take yes for an answer. We have 9-1-1 solutions in
place for VoIP providers today. Vonage appears more concerned about
finding ways to provide E9-1-1 on the cheap."
