E911 task force named
At last: more people to call.
Telecomweb.com has a release on the makeup of the VoIP 911 Joint Task Force, to be made up of FCC reps as well as folks from the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners.
The group is scheduled to meet later this month, and take input from a wide range of stakeholders. Key among their upcoming discussions will be the development of consumer education materials, as if we didn't have enough of those already. Also, how to facilitate enforcement as well as data collection and sharing of best practices.
Note to the task force: It might be more helpful if you could discuss ways to raise money in tight times for updating the infrastructure. Better for consumers, too. Because that's who were supposed to be trying to protect and serve. Right?
