T-Mobile agreed to pay $19.5 million to FCC for last year’s 911 outage in US

Published

It must have been a really painful experience if you had to contact the respondent first and the 911 call did not connect, but the same thing happened to thousands of T-Mobile customers in the US on June 15, 2020, in 12 hours.

As a result of the alarming incident, the wireless carrier this week agreed to pay $19.5 million in a settlement with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).

As a result of this horrific incident, the wireless carrier this week agreed to pay $19.5 million in settlements with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). According to the FCC report, 911 interruptions nationwide last year resulted in a “complete failure” of more than 23,000 emergency calls.

The FCC stated that the “brief failure of the leased fiber transport link on the T-Mobile network” was the initial cause of the useless time and that it was out and combined due to a temporary routing error in the single location. The restoration was also affected by a temporary failure. ”

In an extensively reported statement on the settlement with the FCC this week, T-Mobile said it had improved the reliability of its emergency systems to make 911 available to customers when needed.

It now “goes beyond FCC’s research and continues our focus on our ongoing network build-up,” the company said.

“We understand how critical reliable connectivity is to ensure public safety and we take that responsibility very seriously,” T-Mobile said in the statement. “We have built resiliency into our emergency systems to ensure that our 911 elements are available when they’re needed. This was a short-term isolated outage and we immediately took steps to further enhance our network to prevent this type of event from happening in the future.”

This is not the first time T-Mobile customers have encountered problems calling 911. In 2014, several interruptions blocked the service for a total of three hours. The carrier agreed to pay the FCC $ 17.5 million to resolve the issue.

Samsung Galaxy S22 wallpapers

In early 2022, we hope that Samsung will launch the next iteration of its flagship Galaxy S smartphone that is the Galaxy S22 series. Now, a month before the expected launch, we have four leaked wallpapers from Samsung’s upcoming flagships for you to try.

With sprinkles of yellow, red and green – with an elegant design, not to mention the black variant that is suitable for dark mode – these backgrounds will fit any device you are currently rocking (via- Android Police).

They are reminiscent of early wallpapers we saw last year for the S21 series, which had a hover particle effect before the plain backdrop. It is reminiscent of sand, sometimes looking like water, with its bead-like droplets, each tinted with a tone that matches the rest of the wallpaper.

We expect a little more for the S22 series than the previous lineup, with the recent February launch window confirmed. Although the smaller S22 and S22+ look like refined versions of this year’s model, the S22 Ultra seems to be the successor to the Note 20 we have been dreaming of for a year.

You can download four wallpapers in the zip file on Android File Host to try on your phone. If you are interested in what will be available for us next year in the S22 series, be sure to check out our rumor roundup for everything we have learned so far.
