U.S. communications regulators on Monday proposed fining AT&T Inc. and Alltel Corp. $100,000 each for failing to properly certify that they have safeguarded their customers' personal call information.

Amid concerns that data brokers may be selling subscriber call records, the Federal Communications Commission said it demanded several carriers submit their most recent certifications proving they had complied with federal regulations requiring them to protect customer data.
