Third world emergency communications
Here, you are not getting true enhanced 911 unless you call from a landline (which is why I keep a landline). If you call 911 from a cell phone, you get the state police dispatch and you have to verbally identify the city or town you are calling from and they have to transfer you to the responding agency.
Heaven forbid that you went cell only and have a child who is not breathing and you cannot think clearly enough to give the location of the emergency.
While the cell infrastructure has been upgraded to transmit location information, not all state 911 systems have been upgraded to receive the GPS signals from cell phones.
A good 911 system is one call response that does not require you to be transferred and gives location information, no matter what phone service is used.
The carriers are not to blame, it's state and local governments that are operating 911 systems on outdated technology.
I've experienced ImOn (when they were McLeod USA), Mediacom, Comcast, and Time Warner and I currently have DirecTV. They are much better than broadcast TV.
I have not and will not cut the cord.
