FCC Opens Formal Investigation into AT&T Outage

AT&T Outage - hacking, software update, solar flares

FCC Announces Investigation

In a press conference, FCC spokesman Jonathan Uriarte announced:

“The FCC is carrying out a thorough investigation into a
nationwide outage of the AT&T network that affected
millions of consumers and disrupted access to
lifesaving communications…”

What will they use to get to the root causes of this problem? It has been two weeks; shouldn’t they be close to figuring this out?

When the results are released, we will see the outcome of the investigation. Hopefully, they will have an answer to prevent future outages, no matter the cause.
