  • FCC Chairman Ajit Pai announced that he is terminating an FCC proceeding that would have permitted airlines to allow passengers to use voice communication via cell phone above 10,000 feet. In a statement the Chairman stated that terminating the proposed rules is in the public interest and that “taking it off the table permanently will be a victory for Americans across the country who, like me, value a moment of quiet at 30,000 feet.” For more information, please contact Wes Wright ([email protected]; 202.434.4239).
