Representatives from the mobile phone giant AT&T will be at the Pacific Palisades Community Council meeting Thursday to address service outage issues that's been occurring since Dec. 7.
An illegal cellphone-dampening device caused widespread service outage in Pacific Palisades on Dec. 7, Amy Kalp from the Pacific Palisades Community Council said. The Federal Communications Commission got involved and ordered the device turned off on Dec. 24, but there are still intermittent outages with some in the area still without service, she said.
It is a violation of federal law to use a cell jammer to intentionally block radio communications, such as cell phones, according to the FCC.
The meeting will be at 7 p.m. in the Community Meeting Room at the Pacific Palisades Library, 861 Alma Real Drive.
Members of the public will be able to directly ask questions and get answers from AT&T representatives.
