Infrastructure Deployment Webinar for State and Local Governments

2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT
FCC headquarters, 445 12th Street, S.W., Washington, DC 20554

The Wireline Competition Bureau and the Consumer and Governmental Affairs Bureau held this webinar for state and local governments on a recently-adopted Notice of Proposed Rulemaking and Notice of Inquiry entitled Accelerating Wireline Broadband Deployment by Removing Barriers to Infrastructure Investment.

The NPRM/NOI opened an examination of the regulatory barriers to wireline infrastructure investment and deployment, and the Commission has solicited public comment on how it may remove or reduce such barriers consistent with the law and the public interest. A copy of the NPRM/NOI may be found at: https://www.fcc.gov/document/fcc-seeks-comment-removing-regulatory-barriers-broadband.
