FCC ANNOUNCES TENTATIVE AGENDA FOR OCTOBER OPEN MEETING

(Washington, D.C.) – Federal Communications Commission Chairman Julius Genachowski announced
that the following items will be on the tentative agenda for the next open meeting scheduled for
Wednesday, October 17, 2012:

Modernizing International Data Reporting Requirements Second Report and Order

: The
Commission will consider a Second Report and Order to streamline reporting requirements for
international phone traffic, significantly reducing overall filing burdens while ensuring collection of the
data need to protect consumers and competition in international markets.

Establishment of the Public Safety Answering Points (PSAP) Do-Not-Call Registry Report and
Order

: The Commission will consider a Report and Order that protects Public Safety Answering Points
(PSAPs) from autodialed calls, which can tie up emergency-service telephone lines, by adopting rules that
create a do-not-call registry of PSAP telephone numbers, prohibit autodialed non-emergency calls to
those numbers, and implement specific monetary penalties for autodialing or disclosing registered PSAP
numbers. These rules are mandated by the Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act of 2012.

Flexible Service Rules to Enable LTE Mobile Broadband in Wireless Communications Service
(WCS) Spectrum and Satellite Digital Audio Radio Service (SDARS) Order

: The Commission will
consider an Order on reconsideration that will revise the WCS rules to facilitate use of 30 megahertz of
spectrum for wireless broadband service while protecting SDARS against harmful interference.
The Open Meeting is scheduled to commence at 10:30 a.m. in Room TW-C305, at 445 12th Street, S.W.,
Washington, D.C. The event will be shown live at FCC.gov/live.
