At a congressional hearing yesterday on E-911 issues, Fred Upton (R-Mich) expressed concern that Wireless Local Number Portability (WLNP) requirements for wireless carriers may be slowing down E-911 implementation. An analyst said today Upton plans to introduce legislation that could require LNP deadlines to wait until after wireless E-911 network issues are settled. WLNP would let mobile phone users keep their phone number when switching carriers. The FCC is currently requiring carriers to implement WLNP by November, although the deadline has been pushed back several times before.
