VoIP "on its way to the gallows?" Sorry, Wayne, you're being Rash

I've just read a post in eWeekentitled "Consumer VoIP Could Be On Its Way To The Gallows."In the piece, author Wayne Rash essentially says that because of the inability of most VoIP providers to offer Enhanced 9-1-1 services, more "incidents" such as Texas' complaint against Vonage's lack of clarity in pointing out these limitations will "do more to kill consumer VoIP than nearly anything else.

In the piece, author Wayne Rash essentially says that because of the inability of most VoIP providers to offer Enhanced 9-1-1 services, more "incidents" such as Texas' complaint against Vonage's lack of clarity in pointing out these limitations will "do more to kill consumer VoIP than nearly anything else."

Rash also speculates that outcome may really be what the FCC wants.

I'm sorry, but by the tone of his comments, Wayne Rash is living up to his surname.

First of all, as I explained yesterday, Texas' lawsuit against Vonage has no merit.

Second, profound progress is being made on true VoIP-enabled E-911 solutions.

Third, the FCC loves VoIP. If there's any threat, it will come from the ILECs, and be directed at softphone providers.

Is Wayne being Rash? Or am I? Post a TalkBack.
