7. yes. I recently had heart attack

I was alone and tried to call an ambulance. Discovered that my Internet was down. VOiP "landline" depends on Internet. I never use my cell, but it was the only thing working. Of course I had no idea how to call 911 on it. So I fumbled around for 20 scary minutes and finally called the police. I was lucky that my cell actually worked as my town (and house) have lots of dead zones. So it's not entirely reliable. A good old copper landline would have given me a lot of protection and comfort.
