The FCC today announced more fines being levied against telecommunications providers who failed to meet their emergency call obligations during the 911 outage of April 2014. CenturyLink settled for a record fine of $16 million and Intrado Communications settled for $1.4 million. In addition to the fines, the companies need to put in place a compliance plan to help prevent future outages, as well as identify risks, protect against such risks, and respond to problems in a more timely fashion. Last month, Verizon reached a similar settlement with the FCC for $3.4 million.

Who Receives the Money?

With such a large fine, who receives the money? Do those directly impacted receive it or does it go directly to the FCC budget?
