AT&T Statement on ‘911’
Location Accuracy

Posted by: AT&T Blog Team on February 20, 2014 at 3:00 pm

The following statement may be attributed to an AT&T spokesperson:

“AT&T fully supports the FCC’s goal of improving accuracy in locating ‘911’ wireless callers in both outdoor and indoor locations.  Unfortunately, the Commission has tentatively proposed unrealistic targets for location accuracy indoors.  Indeed, the recent FCC CSRIC Report shows that no vendor currently has proven technology that can meet the proposed standards.  We remain committed to working with the Commission and the public safety community to craft a realistic, effective solution that takes the greatest advantage of existing technology to ensure consumers can rely on ‘911’ no matter where they are or what service they use.”
