Verizon has agreed to a USD 3.4 million settlement to resolve a Federal Communications Commission (FCC) investigation into the company's failure to meet its emergency call obligation during a multistate 911 service outage in 2014. The investigation, led by the FCC's Enforcement Bureau, related to an April 2014 911 service outage that lasted for six hours and affected wireless consumers in nine California counties who were unable to reach emergency call centres during the outage.
