The FCC has launched a federal investigation into telecommunications
company CenturyLink after a failure of the company's systems in
Louisiana led to 911 outages across the US on Thursday. Customers in
several markets were left without Internet, and vital services like
911 were down temporarily, with local police departments urging
residents to call their local numbers with emergencies.

FCC Chairman Ajit Pai has ordered the investigation, calling the
outage "completely unacceptable, and its breadth and duration
are particularly troubling."
