try telling a 911 dispatcher your exact location when you are in the middle of an armed home invasion
There's a solution to home invasions that includes the numbers '911', but it has an M and a 1 in front of them
Joking aside, you make a great case for having a landline. My POTS line is a lousy $27/mo after taxes and fees, or 90 cents a day, why would I give up that peace of mind? I call 911, they have my location instantly. Even in areas with wireless E911 they don't necessarily get an accurate location, and it may take time for the location to resolve.
