FCC Not to Pursue Enforcement Against VoIP Providers over 911

The FCC announced that it will not pursue enforcement action against interconnected VoIP providers regarding the deadlines to obtain customer acknowledgements of the limitations of their 911 service.

The FCC said it was pleased by the industry efforts to contact VoIP subscibers in this matter. Specifically, by repeatedly prompting subscribers through a variety of means, the majority of VoIP providers submitting September reports to the FCC have obtained acknowledgments from nearly all, if not all, of their subscribers. For example, the September reports indicate that at least 21 providers have received acknowledgments from 100% of their subscribers and at least 32 others have obtained acknowledgements from 90% or more of their subscribers.
