FCC Carr Proposes New Wireless Resiliency Rules
Federal Communications Commissioner Brendan Carr called for the FCC to adopt new rules that will promote consumer access to robust, resilient wireless networks during disasters. Specifically, Carr proposed adopting new FCC rules to:
- Require wireless providers to participate in the wireless resiliency framework;
- Expand the types of events that would trigger activation of the framework;
- Mandate roaming during disaster arrangements; and
- Ensure an effective roaming during a disaster regime.
