"On behalf of CTIA and its member companies, we applaud and thank the Commission for recognizing the APCO-NENA-Carrier Roadmap that presents a historic opportunity to deliver on the promise of 9-1-1 indoor location. We look forward to reviewing today's item, which we believe embraces the commitments made by carriers and public safety, including quantifiable deployment metrics and deadlines to assure widespread improvements for first responders. As Americans continue to increasingly rely on mobile devices as their primary communications device for their connected lives, today's action by the FCC will help save lives. While the requirements in today's Order are aggressive, we remain fully committed to delivering on the Roadmap's promise of greatly enhanced location information."
