Communications and Technology "Internet Communications"
Federal Communications Commission wants fiber landlines to continue getting signals during a power outage much like the copper networks. The recommendation by the FCC Chairman would require providers to offer backup power for customers as they transition from copper.
The FCC will vote in August. One concern is the cost for the backup power since it will be passed on to the consumer. Carriers will be required to notify customers of limits to voice during outages and of their transition away from copper networks.
The rules would force phone companies to notify customers and other interconnection carriers before they retire their copper networks. FCC is looking into prevailing issues of 911 support, quality of service, and coverage reliability.
