The FCC’s Wireline Competition Bureau and Wireless Telecommunications Bureau will hold a webinar for the filers of FCC Form 477, Local Telephone Competition and Broadband Reporting, on how to use the new filing interface and other filing requirements. The online webinar will be conducted on Friday, September 5, 2014 from 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. EDT using WebEx web conferencing technology.
To register for the webinar, please send an email to 477INFO@fcc.gov that includes the email addresses to which we should send the WebEx online registration information. Individuals participating in the webinar will have the opportunity to submit questions during the event and have the answers broadcast to all participants. Because the webinar will discuss the mechanics of the new filing system, participants may benefit from also being logged into the online filing system, in a separate browser window, during the webinar. For more information, please contact Suzanne Mendez at Suzanne.Mendez@fcc.gov or (202) 418-0941.
The first Form 477 webinar was held August 6, 2014. More information on that event, including an archived recording, is available on the FCC’s website.
