The FCC today proposed fining AT&T Wireless $2.2 million for missing deadlines and witholding information relating to implementing Enhanced-911 (E-911). The deadline for U.S. wireless companies to begin offering improved location information for 911 calls, including the sale of properly equipped handsets, was Oct. 1, 2001. AT&T Wireless failed to meet that deadline, without requesting a waiver of the requirement, and also telling the government a waiver was not needed, the FCC said. The company also failed to provide certain E-911 services to public safety officials. Additionally, AT&T did not inform the agency that information in its request to have some of the rules waived was no longer substantially accurate and complete, according to the regulator.
