The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is inviting public comments on the recent network outage at T-Mobile US, which lasted over half a day. Government agencies, public safety entities, businesses, and people in general can submit comments until 8 July. The outage prevented customers from making calls, receiving calls, and in some cases, sending text messages over T-Mobile's Voice-over LTE (VoLTE) network. The FCC noted social media reports which said emergency number 911 was also affected.
