The following may be attributed to Joan Marsh, AT&T Executive Vice President of Regulatory & State External Affairs:

“AT&T supports the FCC’s goal to improve the effectiveness of the wireless emergency alert (WEA) system by enhancing the ability of public officials to more narrowly target the intended recipients of alerts. The system modifications required to support device-based geotargeting, however, must be made throughout the alerting ecosystem to ensure that any new features and functionality will perform as designed. AT&T is committed to delivering on the goals of today’s order as quickly as possible, and to continuing to invest in the necessary solutions to improve mission-critical communications.”
