Re: Speakeasy Voice! I noticed the same verbose disclaimers regarding 911 in the Speakeasy voice TOS when I signed up today. While I would certainly prefer full E911 service, I'm willing to forego that for now. Besides our cell phones, we'll have a second, completely separate POTS line with measured service and no features. They're very cheap.
A separate voice line with a modem on it is a handy backup for Speakeasy/Covad outages (which have been infrequent so far). Since it's a separate loop, it will work even if the primary (DSL) loop is physically cut.
