On August 7, 2020, the Commission released a Notice of Inquiry (NOI) to seek comment on the deployment of advanced telecommunications capability to all Americans in a reasonable and timely fashion.  The Commission’s top goal is closing the digital divide and bringing the economic, educational, healthcare, social, and civic benefits of connectivity to all Americans seeking broadband access.  As required by Congress, the Commission annually assesses progress in national broadband deployment.
