Senator Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., today unveiled a wireless consumer 'bill of rights'. The legislation apparently has broad support from state regulators and consumer groups. The measure would impose stricter rules requiring implementation of Local Number Portability. Carriers would also be required to provide uniform, explicit billing and service contract information on all marketing materials. In addition, the new law would have the FCC more closely monitor and regulate service quality and coverage, including maintaining interactive maps of carriers' coverage areas.
