The Federal Communications Commission (FCC or Commission) has released the agenda for its January open meeting, scheduled for January 29, 2014. It contains the following items:
Location Accuracy for Emergency Calls: The Commission will consider a Report and Order to ensure that accurate caller location information is automatically provided to public safety officials for all wireless calls to 911, including for indoor calls, to meet consumer and public safety needs and expectations, and to take advantage of new technological developments.
Broadband Deployment: The Commission will consider a 2015 Broadband Progress Report examining whether advanced telecommunications capability is being deployed to all Americans in a reasonable and timely fashion; and a Notice of Inquiry asking what immediate action the Commission should take to accelerate the deployment of such capability by removing barriers to infrastructure investment and by promoting competition in the telecommunications market. The Commission will also consider an Order announcing the conclusion of the Ninth Notice of Inquiry concerning the development of advanced telecommunications capability.
Presentation on New Consumer Help Center: The Commission will hear a presentation on the new Consumer Help Center that provides an easier-to-use, more consumer friendly portal for filing and monitoring informal consumer complaints, as well as accessing educational materials.
The meeting is scheduled to start at 10:30 am, and will be shown online at www.fcc.gov/live.
