FCC to Push Ahead on Broadband Agenda

Friday Apr 9th 2010 by Datamation.com Staff

Despite the recent court ruling, the FCC plans to continue with the National Broadband Plan.

Wall Street Journal: Earlier this week, an appeals court decision in a Comcast case struck a blow at FCC regulation of the Internet, specifically the so-called "net-neutrality" rules. However, FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski said that the ruling "does not change our broadband policy goals, or the ultimate authority of the FCC to act to achieve those goals."

He added, "The court did not question the FCC's goals; it merely invalidated one technical, legal mechanism for broadband policy chosen by prior commissions."

On Thursday, the agency released a "Broadband Action Agenda" with 64 Internet-related initiatives the FCC plans to address this year.
