CRTC orders 911 functionality for VoIP providers
The CRTC has ordered Internet voice providers to offer emergency calling functionality equivalent to that offered by incumbent telephone companies in their territory. VoIP providers, which offer nomadic services, are required within three months to implement a solution that mirrors that offered by the ILEC whether that be 911 or E911. Providers, which offer their subscribers out-of-exchange telephone numbers, are required to implement an interim solution at least comparable to basic 911 within 90 days. The full decision can be found here.
