FCC To Require 911 for VoIP

Speaking on Deep Background, the Press Secretary whispered:

> How about an anycast address implement(ed|able) by every network
> provider that would return a zipcode?
> $ telnet
> Connected
> 33709
> Disconnected.

is there a unique zipcode in shanghai?

And even Zip+4 plus whatever they have now added to it will
not meet Big Brother's requirement in the USA.

My issue, David, is not "where is the user exactly?", it's "which PSAP
do I route to?". Something on the close order of a US ZIP<tm> Code is
fine for that.
