The Federal Communications Commission (FCC or Commission) has released the tentative agenda for its November 17, 2016 open meeting. It contains the following items:
Mobility Fund: The Commission will consider a Report and Order that would adopt rules for the
second phase of the Mobility Fund, which would provide ongoing universal service support
for mobile broadband networks.
Roaming Obligations of Commercial Mobile Service Providers and Regulatory
Classification of Voice over LTE Service: The Commission will consider a Notice of Proposed
Rulemaking that would seek comment on proposals to implement a unified roaming standard and
to classify Voice over LTE.
Business Data Services: The Commission will consider a Report and Order and Second Further
Notice of Proposed Rulemaking that would allow for light-touch regulation of packet-based
Business Data Services and retain and update price cap regulation for lower-bandwidth TDM-based
Business Data Services to ensure that lack of competition does not unfairly harm
commercial customers or the consumers who rely upon these services.
Implementation of the Twenty-First Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act of 2010: The Commission will consider a Report and Order which addresses the amount of video described programming required to be made available to consumers.
The meeting is scheduled to start at 10:30 am, and will be shown online at www.fcc.gov/live.
