Net phone services get 911 capability Users of Internet-based telephone services can finally call 911. Vonage DigitalVoice, the biggest provider of voice over Internet Protocol service, will formally announce this week that it is enabling customers to
connect to the 911 emergency system, becoming the first such provider to offer the capability. "You're seeing the first few steps into the future," Executive Vice President Lou Holder said on Tuesday. The company began offering customers the capability during the last
few weeks but has yet to officially tout the move.
