911 calling restored for DC Sprint, Boost customers

Sprint and Boost customers can now dial 911 and not get a busy signal in D.C.

On Saturday, D.C.’s Office of Unified Communications got reports that the carriers’ customers were getting a fast busy tone when dialing 911.

As a back up for callers who may still experience a busy signal, they may still call 311 and press option 1.
