The FCC is a goverment agency. They can't have hidden rules. If they're not published on the web then they are published elsewhere. The FCC is supposed to serve citizens, not phone companies. People are already cutting their landline phone service by the droves. Hiding this rule does not stop or slow that process much, IMO.diehardbiker65 said:Well like I said a while ago, FCC have TWO seperate sites, one for public to read and browse, and other site is private, hidden to the public. Only those who registered and doing business with FCC can access these hidden sites.
I doubt any one of you would find the exact ruling in the public site. Just think about it, I am sure FCC is trying to protect business in some way. If the rule of requiring 911 to be able to work while disconnected were publicize and everybody knows. What do you think would happen? I can bet that local phone company income will DIVE big time, and collapse big time. FCC can't afford that to happen. People would say, hey I got cell phone and if I can call 911 though disconnected landline phone why should I bother paying local phone company while I am using my own cell phone??? Get the drift?
