Queens Man Cited by FCC for Interfering with Sprint's Network
Aug 24, 2015, 1:01 PM by Eric M. Zeman
The FCC has filed a citation against a Queens, New York, man for operating equipment in the 1900MHz band that is interfering with Sprint's network. Sprint filed a complaint about interference issues on March 10. The FCC investigated and determined the interference is being caused by an unknown device or devices on property owned in Queens by Jian Chang. "The device at this location is injecting noise into the Sprint network and degrading or blocking service to Sprint's customers," said the FCC. When asked for help, "Chang refused to assist the agents and refused to allow the inspection of any offending transmitter." The FCC sent Chang an official notice about the interference issue and received no response. The FCC says Chang is violating multiple rules, such as those prohibiting the "operation of an intentional, unintentional, or incidental radiator subject to the conditions that no harmful interference is caused. Any equipment or device subject to the provisions of this part [of the rules]…shall be made available for inspection by a Commission representative upon reasonable request." Chang has 30 days (from Aug. 19) to respond to the FCC's citation and inspection request. Chang may be fined up to $16,000 per day up to a total of $122,500 until the issue is resolved.
