The upcoming tests will be conducted on Cingular's network equipment in San Francisco, AT&T Wireless's networks in Dallas and Portland, and VoiceStream equipment in Washington, Rhode Island and Texas, Wade said. The technology has to locate two-thirds of 911 calls within 100 yards, the federal mandate for E911 accuracy. "Yes, sure, we are behind schedule; we are delayed," Wade said. "The real answer is no technology is really good enough. You are going to get areas in which you are very good and stunningly accurate, and you'll get some areas that are absolutely horrible.".
The FCC is considering requests for a delay from the three carriers to work out the EOTD issues, The FCC has generally granted most delay requests, the last coming in October when the FCC let all U.S, carriers miss a deadline to begin building their E911 networks, While most got off with a waiver, the FCC proposed fining AT&T Wireless $2.1 million, a fine AT&T Wireless has promised to fight, Cingular Wireless has agreed to make a "voluntary contribution" of $100,000 to FCC regulators, An E911 technology used by three carriers is in critical condition after failing to meet accuracy standards aimed at making sure rescuers can quickly hardshell case + ring for apple iphone xs max - rose gold glitter/clear locate cell phones calls..

Venture capitalists and executives created Excite@Home in January 1999, when Web portal Excite.com completed a $6.7 billion merger with @Home--the largest deal between Internet companies. The company provided the optical backbone for its cable partners, and it eventually amassed 4.1 million subscribers--45 percent of Americans with home broadband access. But the company may have been doomed from the start. AT&T, which at one point had its own executives occupying more than half of Excite@Home's board of directors, never condoned the merger. Cultural clashes soon erupted between Ma Bell's conservative "cable guys" and the younger Silicon Valley honchos who ruled Excite. The young company quickly lost focus, and customers began complaining of outages, slowdowns and advertising campaigns that didn't deliver on the company's promise of reliability.
