Consumer Information Session: What the FCC's Consumer Help Center Can Do for You

1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT

The Federal Communications Commission's Consumer and Governmental Affairs Bureau hosted this Consumer Information Webinar which provided information about the FCC's online Consumer Help Center (CHC).  The CHC has several consumer education features that allow consumers to search for consumer guides, access the Consumer Complaint Center and view complaint data via the Consumer Data Center. This webinar provided detailed information about the CHC's features and gave instructions on how to navigate each section of the website. This information is valuable to consumers because it explains various ways that consumers can address their current or future telecommunications concerns and issues.
