New York man accused of interfering with Sprint's 1900MHz pipeline in Queens, New York
Chang has not been cooperating with the FCC. He has refused to admit to the interference, and will not allow the FCC to physically examine the offending equipment. He has until September 19th to respond to a citation issued to him, dated on August 19th. If Chang fails to respond, additional sanctions could be placed on him. So far, he has not replied to any letters sent by the Federal agency.
The whole ordeal could end up costing the offender as much as $16,000 for each time, or each day he interfered with the Sprint network. The maximum fine is $122,500. Sprint uses the 1900MHz band for FDD-LTE service, and to carry CDMA voice service.
