The Federal Computer Weekly has news about the FCC and E911.
While this story isn't exactly new, I think it's safe to say that by this time next year we'll be seeing more new rules that VoIP operators have to comply with to keep people safe and in touch. That said, one has to wonder how many years it will be before a mobile 911 call goes to an operator in less than 10 minutes.
The statewide systems are over taxed and under-funded. The legislation and funding for those systems is really where the FCC should look next.
