State officials say 911 issues in Mass. 'have been corrected' [telecom]

A telecommunications network outage disrupted 911 calls in Massa- chusetts and across the country Friday, creating confusion among first responders and exposing a major weakness in the emergency response network.

CenturyLink Inc., one of the nation's largest telecom providers, said a technical problem led to failed 911 calls made by cellphones in many parts of the country. The Louisiana-based company said Thursday night that it expected service to be restored in four hours, but the job took until about 8 p.m. Friday to complete.
