FCC's Pai Launches Investigation Into AT&T 911 Outage
AT&T customers were unable to place 911 emergency calls across the Houston-area on Wednesday evening.
AT&T spokeswoman Emily Edmonds on Thursday declined to comment on how many customers were affected or what caused the outage.
The company did not say what caused the outage.
People affected in Sumter County experiencing 911 issues should call the non-emergency number, 352-793-2621, officials said. Others at least could call local numbers for emergency services, though that may not be as effective as 911 in an emergency.
