FCC CHAIRMAN JULIUS GENACHOWSKI TRAVELS TO INDIANA THURSDAY;

WILL UNVEIL INNOVATIVE PARTNERSHIP WITH INDUSTRY LEADERS

TO CREATE THOUSANDS OF NEW BROADBAND-ENABLED JOBS ACROSS AMERICA

Washington, D.C. On Thursday, August 4, Federal Communications Commission Chairman Julius
Genachowski will join business leaders in Jeffersonville, Indiana to announce the launch of jobs4america,
a new coalition of forward-looking businesses committed to creating thousands of new jobs in America.
More and more contact centers are using new broadband technology like VoIP, video conferencing and
social networking to improve the customer experience, and a growing number of Americans do call center
work from home.
Thanks in part to the Commission's efforts to bring the benefits of high-speed internet to every
community in the country, businesses are harnessing broadband technologies to transform the way they
operate, improving customer service while creating good jobs across the country. Broadband allows
regions and communities to compete globally, attracting new firms, investments and jobs with next-
generation communications infrastructure.

WHAT:

Chairman Genachowski will announce jobs4america's launch at the site of a new contact
center under construction by ACCENT Marketing Services, a customer engagement
company and founding member of the jobs4america coalition based in Jeffersonville,
Indiana. Chairman Genachowski will meet company executives and workers and tour the
construction site before delivering remarks.
