Re: Internet Phone Companies May Cut Off Customers

Despite the 999 system, there was, however, still a widely adopted

Sounds much like the convention that many US cities used where the local police departments' phone numbers all ended in 1234 and the fire departments ended in 1212. This was true of Cleveland and most of its suburbs.

[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: A 'standard' set by AT&T for the operating companies was to use '2121' or '2131' as well. The last four digits were to preferably end in '1' and be repetitive. PAT]n
