Disadvantages of Voice over IP

There are some possible disadvantages to Voice over IP service.

1. VoIP providers may or may not offer directory assistance/white page listings.

Most do by now.

2. VoIP services don't work during power outages and the service provider may not offer back up power.

Simply buying a battery back-up at around $50 will prevent this.

3. Not all VoIP services connect directly to emergency services through 9-1-1.

This is true and there is a lot being done about it. This will be the topic of the next post.
