ATLANTA, May 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — The following statement is in
response to today’s vote by the Federal Communications Commission requiring
Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoIP) providers to support E-911 services, and
is attributable to Dave Baker, EarthLink (Nasdaq: ELNK), vice president of law
and public policy.

“EarthLink and other VoIP providers are committed to providing 911
services. We therefore support FCC and Congressional efforts to ensure public
safety by requiring that VoIP subscribers have prompt access to E-911.


“In order to meet this objective, the FCC must ensure that incumbent phone
companies provide access to the interfaces needed to deliver and complete
E-911 calls.

“We look forward to working with the FCC to ensure that the promise of
VoIP and the safety of consumers are realized together.”
