Submission + - What's your IP? The FCC wants to kill your Phone Number (engadget.com)

An anonymous reader writes: The FCC isn't necessarily a stickler for tradition, as it is now encouraging phone networks to explore what would happen if VoIP replaced everything else. In other words, how would the system cope if the only phone numbers were Internet Protocol addresses; if even emergency calls were transmitted over the web; and if remote rural communities became dependent on VoIP, with no other type of network as a backup?
