As previously announced, this hearing is part of the FCC’s effort to gather information for the
development of a National Broadband Plan. The hearing will focus on whether all Americans
are able to benefit from the benefits broadband can provide. The public is encouraged to attend
and participate. Additional information on the agenda will be announced shortly.
The Federal Communications Commission is convening a series of hearings to promote an open
dialogue with the public on the development of a National Broadband Plan. The American
Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 directed the FCC to submit a National Broadband Plan
to Congress by February 17, 2010 that addresses broadband deployment, adoption, affordability,
and the use of broadband to advance solutions to national priorities, including health care,
education, energy, public safety, job creation, investment, and others.
Reasonable accommodations for people with disabilities are available upon request. Include a
description of the accommodation you will need with as much detail as possible. Also include a
way we can contact you if we need more information. Please provide as much advance notice as
possible; last minute requests will be accepted, but may be impossible to fill. Send an e-mail to
fcc504@fcc.gov or call the Consumer & Governmental Affairs Bureau at 202-418-0530 (voice),
202-418-0432 (TTY).
