WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Federal Communications Commission said on Wednesday it had reached a $2.4 million settlement with General Communication Inc resolving an investigation into five 911 service outages on the company’s network in Alaska.

The FCC said GCI had agreed to strengthen its procedures for providing 911 service and take other steps to ensure 911 service reliability as part of the settlement.
