Basic Information Regarding IPComms 911

With traditional Enhanced 911 (“E911”) emergency Service, when you dial “911”, your telephone number and registered address is simultaneously sent to the local emergency center assigned to your location, and emergency operators have immediate access to your telephone and address, thus permitting them to respond to your emergency call or to call you back if necessary.  With IPComms’s Service, if you are located in an area where the emergency center does not support E911 emergency Service (i.e., is not capable of simultaneously receiving your telephone number and address), You have basic 911 emergency Service.  

IPComms partners with one of the nation’s leading 911 underlying service providers in order to assist you in case of an emergency. IPComms depends upon its E911 and basic 911 underlying service provider to assist IPComms in supporting your emergency calls.  Most of IPComms’s Service areas support E911 emergency calls.  IPComms will automatically upgrade its customers that have basic 911 emergency Service to E911 emergency Service once its underlying service provider upgrades its connections to the emergency call centers.  If you have basic 911 emergency Service, the local emergency operator will not have immediate access to your call back number or to your exact location when receiving your emergency call.  Accordingly, you must be prepared to give the basic 911 emergency operator this information.  Until and unless you do so, the basic 911 emergency operator may not be able to call you back or dispatch assistance if the call is disconnected or if you are unable to verbally communicate that information.  We will not give you notice of the upgrade, however you can verify your type of 911 emergency Service by logging into your account online.  IPComms’s Service is only available in area's where 911 emergency Services can be provided to you at your registered physical location that was approved by us when you either signed up for Service or when you updated your registered physical location information with us.
