The FCC on Wednesday made good on its intent to start forming on a national broadband policy.
The issue is one that’s near and dear to President Obama’s heart and with a Democratic chairman on his side, looks like one that could come to fruition after 10 years of talk.
“Congress has made it crystal clear that it expects the best thinking and recommendations we can put together by next February,” FCC Acting Chairman Michael Copps said in a prepared statement. “If we do our job well, this will be the most formative – indeed transformative – proceeding ever in the commission’s history.”
The FCC held its monthly meeting Wednesday, centering most of the conversation on national broadband; groups from the Wireless Communications Association and Free Press to Public Knowledge all praised the FCC’s new undertaking.
