The American Cable Association has called for creation of an industry working group to craft voluntary network outage reporting rules in lieu of regulatory mandates by the FCC, in response to concerns raised by stakeholders that the FCC lacks authority to impose such requirements on broadband and interconnected VoIP providers.
