VOIP E911 is an FCC mandate. Write a detailed (but clear) letter to
the FCC about the problem; carbon it to the corporate counsel at
Carolina Net and to the E911 supervisor you spoke with, and to your
state Public Utilities Commission. Send it certified mail, return
receipt requested.

If you don't receive a timely response, you may have more luck
contacting your state PUC than the FCC if you call them on the phone,
but I'd call both, if I were you.
