Vonage to FCC: Qwest is playing nice, so SBC should, too

-Posted by Russell Shaw @ 2:44 pm

[.....] Vonage claims "that SBC has agreed to begin discussions on
working cooperatively to improve 911 offerings available to customers
using VoIP," Wilhelm wrote. "However, Vonage also noted its concern
that SBC has already provided 911 interconnection access to its
unregulated VoIP affiliate.

"The terms and conditions of the access granted its affiliate are also
not being made public and are subject to a non-tariffed 'ancillary'
agreement," Wilhelm added. "Vonage reiterated its strong concern about
any practice that would permit an ILEC to offer 911 access to its
unregulated affiliate on a confidential and non-tariffed basis while
restricting customers of other VoIP services from receiving the same
level of access."
