Cingular Wireless says it will pay $100,000 to federal regulators for missing the Oct. 1 deadline to begin building a system that lets police locate cell phone users making 911 calls. The payment is the first of two that the Federal Communications Commission is expected to announce in the next few weeks. Sources said AT&T Wireless is negotiating a similar deal with the FCC, also for missing the Oct. 1 deadline. All U.S. carriers missed the deadline, but many were granted waivers by the FCC.
