That should be "OR" you need to call 911.  VoIP isn't powered from CO
battery, and the last time I check there wasn't a standard for routing a
911 call to the correct jurisdiction.  There have been several hacks
proposed for solving both of these problems.  I'm sure something will be
standardized if VoIP takes off.

I meant AND, but the OR case is also interesting.
You need something that works for all of them.

Speaking of VOIP, I like http://www.sipphone.com . No monthly fees, no per
minute fees. I also use http://www.ipkall.com/ to get a POTS number people
can call to reach my sip phones.

Methinks thou doth protest too much.

The existing VoIP providers that are big enough to bother looking at
already have 911 routing systems.  (AT&T CallVantage, Vonage, Packet8, etc.)

Companies deploying VoIP routing of calls within their organizations
(the ones that are doing it right) provide routes to 911 in each of
their office locations, pre-programmed to the appropriate station sets.
