Public-safety groups took wireless carriers to task in filings with
the FCC regarding 9-1-1 location technology, saying a CTIA proposal is
"unacceptable" and accusing carriers of trying to dilute the
definition of dispatchable location.

CTIA, an association representing U.S. wireless carriers, said last

meters for 80 percent of fixes, yet added that the FCC should not
adopt any metric at this time.
