FCC Releases Notice of Inquiry on Broadband Progress
The FCC has released the Eleventh Broadband Progress Notice of Inquiry (the “Notice”), which was adopted during the August open meeting. This Notice requests comment on the current state of the deployment and availability of “advanced telecommunications capability to all Americans” under Section 706. Most notably, the Notice seeks comment on whether to redefine “advanced telecommunications capability” to include access to both fixed and mobile broadband service (rather than just access to fixed broadband service).
