FCC blasts CenturyLink for December 2018 outage but issues no punishment.

By Jon Brodkin

CenturyLink's nationwide, 37-hour outage in December 2018 disrupted
911 service for millions of Americans and prevented completion of at
least 886 calls to 911, a new Federal Communications Commission report
said.

Back in December, FCC Chairman Ajit Pai called the outage on
CenturyLink's fiber network "completely unacceptable" and vowed to
investigate. The FCC released the findings from its investigation
today, describing how CenturyLink failed to follow best practices that
could have prevented the outage. But Pai still hasn't announced any
punishment of CenturyLink.
