News Update: Regulatory and Standards Activities

The Plan, which the FCC delivered to Congress on March 16, 2010, lays out a comprehensive strategy for connecting all corners of the nation while transforming the economy and society with the communications network of the future — robust, affordable, and high-speed Internet. The 2010 Broadband Action Agenda announced today explains the purpose and timing of more than 60 rulemakings and other notice-and-comment proceedings the Plan recommends for FCC action. Executing these steps will accelerate deployment and adoption of robust, affordable broadband for all Americans, helping 100 million U.S. homes get affordable access to actual download speeds of at least 100 megabits over the next decade; promote innovation, investment, competition, and consumer interests throughout the broadband ecosystem, and advance the use of broadband for key national priorities, including public safety, health care, and education.
