FCC Consumer Connections: Tech Transitions Info Session

1:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT
FCC headquarters, Room TW-C305 (Commission Meeting Room), 445 12th Street, S.W., Washington, DC 20554

The FCC held an Info Session to provide consumers with information about “technology transitions” in the telecommunications marketplace.  Providers around the country are upgrading the technology that delivers their services to homes. Existing copper-based networks, originally built for voice-only services, are being replaced with alternative platforms capable of providing a variety of services such as higher-speed broadband, video, voice, and interactive features.  At this Info Session, FCC subject matter experts shared information about how the progress of technology transitions are impacting the consumer experience, including but not limited to, service implications, backup power issues, and accessibility concerns.
