"Lingo VoIP phone service provides more features while maintaining the fundamental attributes of the land line at a substantially lower cost," said Doug Weeks, Lingo vice president and general manager. "We are very excited about continuing to bring our customers new and enhanced services."
"We are pleased to report that after a focused and diligent six month-long effort to comply with the FCC's mandate, all Packet8 subscribers accessing our services from the United States can now be assured that they can reach an emergency service operator by dialing 9-1-1 on any Packet8 device, including our videophones, during an emergency," said 8x8 Chairman and CEO Bryan Martin.
"We did not wait for the government to require us to give our customers E-911," said Paul Erickson, chairman and co-founder of SunRocket. "We recognize that safety matters most and that consumers expect to get emergency assistance when they dial 911 from any telephone. SunRocket built E-911 support into our business plan from the beginning."
