Sprint, Alltel, USC fined for missed e911 deadline

The FCC has fined Sprint, Alltel and U.S. Cellular a total of $2.83 million for not meeting the December 31, 2005 deadline for enhanced 911 services. By the end of 2005, all wireless carriers had to ensure that 95 percent of their subscribers had location-enabled handsets that could allow 911 responders to find them in an emergency. According to FCC Chairman Kevin Martin, the three carriers "failed to meet this critical deadline by a significant margin, despite the clear requirements of the commission and the needs of their consumers."
