The FCC is convening a series of hearings to promote an open dialogue between the FCC and
the public on 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
