October 2012 Open Commission Meeting

October 17, 2012, 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM EDT
Room TW-C305, 445 12th Street S.W., Washington, DC

The FCC held an Open Meeting in Washington, DC on Wednesday, October 17, 2012, on the subjects listed below:

  • Wireless Carrier Usage Alerts to Prevent Bill Shock
    Pursuant to CTIA's revision to its Code of Conduct for Wireless Service last year, October 17, 2012 is the deadline by which the participating CTIA member wireless carriers must provide their subscribers with at least two of the specified four types of alerts to allow consumers to avoid unexpected charges for wireless usage exceeding their plan limits, and for additional charges for international roaming. The Consumer and Governmental Affairs Bureau will provide a status report of the participating carriers' compliance with this requirement.
  • Implementation of the Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act of 2012 (CG Docket No. 12-129); Establishment of a Public Safety Answering Point Do-Not-Call Registry
    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.
  • Amendment of Part 27 of the Commission’s Rules to Govern the Operation of Wireless Communications Services in the 2.3 GHz Band (WT Docket No. 07-293); Establishment of Rules and Policies for the Digital Audio Radio Satellite Service in the 2310-2360 MHz Frequency Band (IB Docket No. 95-91)
    The Commission will consider an Order on Reconsideration that revises the WCS rules to facilitate use of 30 megahertz of spectrum for wireless broadband service while protecting SDARS against harmful interference.
