Vonage Fails To Meet FCC Deadline

The nation's largest non-cable provider of internet phone service could be banned from signing up new customers.

Vonage failed to meet Monday's Federal Communications Commission deadline to provide all customers with enhanced 9-1-1 service. In it's compliance report to the FCC, Vonage says only 26 percent of its one million subscribers have enhanced 9-1-1 service.

NewsChannel 11 tested Vonage last February and found you must register for 9-1-1 before it can be activated.
