Emergency call outage for six hours cost Verizon $3.4 million

As per Federal Communications Commission (FCC), all US mobile phone carriers should keep emergency lines 911 running as long as possible. And Verizon fell short of that obligations due to the service outage for 6 hours which left nearly 750,000 Californians without emergency calls.

For this network outage, Verizon has to pay $3.4 million with words of caution and warning in return from FCC. Positive is at least with this huge hole in the pocket, service providers think of improving their network infrastructure rather than paying the same money in fines.
