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.
