Cell phone service to be more reliable, maybe

Right now, when the power goes out during an emergency, say a hurricane or earthquake, your cell phone service dies but your land-line may well continue to work. This is because the (land-line)phone company has back-up power and cell phone towers do not. The FCC is considering changing that by requiring 24-hours worth of back-up power at cell towers. The cell phone companies are objecting to the cost.
