AT's network last night was a fiasco – don't worry though, the FCC is on the case
AT suffered an America-wide outage of 911 emergency calls Wednesday evening, sparking some degree of panic and a swift response from US comms regulator, the FCC.
The full scale of the problem is not yet known, and AT has yet to put out a response beyond a tweet acknowledging the problem and another one a little under an hour later saying the emergency service had been restored.
Initial reports that the failure was limited to a small part of the country were quickly undermined by reports on Twitter of people from all over the US registering their surprise and anger.
"I just switched to @Verizon.
tweeted one unhappy customer, William Spazenelli .
