445 12th St. S.W., Washington, D.C. - Room TW-C305

The Federal Communications Commission will hold an Open Meeting in Washington, DC. on February 8, 2011, which includes the following items:

Connect America Fund and Intercarrier Compensation Reform NPRM: A Notice of Proposed  Rulemaking to get broadband to all of rural America and spur investment and job creation, by modernizing the Universal Service Fund and intercarrier compensation (ICC) system while cutting waste and inefficiency. Through the use of market-driven, incentive-based policies and increased accountability, the NPRM proposes near-term support for broadband deployment in unserved areas and measures to address ICC arbitrage, as well as a long-term transition from current high-cost support and ICC mechanisms to a single, fiscally responsible Connect America Fund.
 
Data Innovation Initiative Presentation: A presentation on the status of the comprehensive reform efforts to modernize and streamline how the Commission collects, uses, and disseminates data in order to improve the agency’s fact-based, data-driven decision-making.
 
Broadband and Voice Data Modernization NPRM: A Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, initiated as part of the Commission’s Data Innovation Initiative, to streamline and modernize the collection of data via Form 477, in order to ensure that the data the Commission collects enables informed policymaking while minimizing burdens on voice and broadband service providers.
 
CEI/ONA Reporting Elimination NPRM: A Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, initiated as part of the Commission’s Data Innovation Initiative, to eliminate the legacy narrowband comparably efficient interconnection (CEI) and open network architecture (ONA) reporting requirements that currently apply to the Bell Operating Companies (BOCs), due to a lack of continuing relevance and utility.
 
The event will be shown live at FCC.gov/live.
