FCC announces broadband action agenda

In support of its National Broadband Plan issued in March, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has now released a more detailed, tactical plan to implement the Plan’s key recommendations.

The Commission’s “Broadband Action Agenda” provides a roadmap for the completion of more than 60 separate rulemaking and other notice-and-comment proceedings required to achieve the primary goals of the National Broadband Plan.  Those goals include:

  • Promoting world-leading mobile broadband infrastructure and innovation;
  • Accelerating universal broadband access and adoption, and advancing national purposes;
  • Fostering competition and maximizing consumer benefit across the broadband ecosystem;
  • Advancing robust and secure public safety communications networks.

In addition to completing the individual agenda items, the FCC says that it will simultaneously work on a number of initiatives that support the Plan that don’t require formal agency proceedings.
