The FCC's investigating AT&T's widespread 911 call outage
From PC World: AT&T’s mobile subscribers in some U.S. states were not able to make 911 emergency calls late Wednesday, leading to complaints from police departments and emergency agencies in various parts of the country.
Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai wrote on Twitter that his agency was receiving reports of widespread AT&T 911 call outages and its public safety staff were investigating.
Pai tweeted about an hour later that AT&T had reported to him that 911 service was restored. “The @FCC will investigate the root cause of the outage and its impact,” he added.
AT&T tweeted that an issue that affected some calls to 911 from wireless customers had been resolved.
Mobile users in at least 14 states and Washington, D.C., were not able to call 911 for a few hours on Wednesday night, reported The New York Times.
