nice write, but your missing a bigger picture here
DHS has jurisdiction over 200 miles from any entry point in the US.
This is particularly troubling when you actually look at what that covers (a very small area in the center of this country)
I was never a conspiracy theorist until the last presidency ended and some of their tactics came out
that your telco can only direct your calls to commercial/emergency entities it deemed appropriate because it didn't like how others conducted business, Or hadn't paid for routing to their number. Mark my words this is the beginning of a ride on a slippery slope that I certainly don't want to take.
How long before they squeeze out companies like Vonage just because they can degrade network performance for that particular vendor that is in direct competition with comcast voice service?
