  • Left out reason #3

    I'm not sure that I agree with reason #1, but imho you're spot-on with reason #2. However, you left out reason #3: It appears that Vonage is positioning themselves to claim in the Texas court case that it's the phone companies that are to blame for preventing better e911 service. Right or wrong, it opens the door for lawsuits. The phone companies have deeper pockets. In order to ward of being drawn into the court battles, they need to show that they are not being the roadblocks to the VoIP public safety issues around e911.
