FCC ANNOUNCES NEXT ROUND OF PUBLIC WORKSHOPS

FOR OPEN INTERNET PROCEEDING

Washington, D.C. -- The Federal Communications Commission today announced the dates,
times, and locations of the January public workshops for the FCC’s open Internet proceeding.
These workshops will explore the impact of the Internet’s openness on consumers, innovation,
and investment.
The next public workshop will occur on Jan. 13, 2010 at 5 p.m. at the MIT Media Lab in
Cambridge, Mass. and will address innovation, investment, and the open Internet. It will be
followed by a workshop on consumers, transparency, and the open Internet on Jan. 19, 2010
starting at 1 p.m. in the Commission meeting room. The dates, locations, and topics for
additional spring workshops for the open Internet proceeding will be announced in early 2010.
Agendas for the Jan. 13 and Jan. 19 workshops will be made available in early January. All
workshops will be open to the public; however, admittance will be limited to the seating
available. Audio/video coverage of the workshops will be broadcast live with open captioning
over the Web on www.OpenInternet.gov.
Reasonable accommodations for persons with disabilities are available upon request. Please
include a description of the accommodation you will need. Individuals making such requests
must include their contact information should FCC staff need to contact them for more
information. Requests should be made as early as possible. Please send an e-mail to
fcc504@fcc.gov or call the Consumer & Governmental Affairs Bureau: 202-418-0530 (voice),
