Hello? Hello? I think I

Hello? Hello? I think I lost you…
: Sen. Chuck Schumer says cellelar coverage in New York City is the worst anywhere.

He wrote a letter to FCC Chairman Michael Powell:

Dear Mr. Powell:

I am writing because I believe cellular phone service in New York City has reached abysmal levels. Dropped calls, jammed networks, poor call quality and rigid contracts are quickly transforming an excellent modern convenience into a nightmare for consumers.

He says the FCC made a mistake dropping a requirement for coverage maps; Schumer says they should be required to show their dead zones. He says they should not charge us for airtime when they lose the call.

Go get ’em, Chuck.
