CTIA-The Wireless Association® is taking issue with fast-spreading proposals to amend a 1934 communications law that blocks authorities from jamming federal airwaves. States are concerned that prisoners are using cell phones to conduct criminal activities, but CTIA spokesman John Walls said that jamming technology was "imprecise." "We're certainly not at odds on the intent. There's not one legitimate customer that we have behind bars, and shutting that off is as much of a concern to the industry as anybody else," Walls said, adding that the industry would seek a solution to "protect legitimate use while still solving the problem."
