FCC details national broadband plan priorities

The FCC is moving full steam ahead with its national broadband plan, which is due to Congress March 17. The team in charge with developing the plan laid out a series of priorities at the commission's monthly meeting yesterday, including delivering faster broadband to schools and allowing people to check their electricity usage on the Internet. However, many of the plan's details, including what the final proposals will be for increasing wireless spectrum for mobile broadband, are not yet known. The plan is expected to also tackle reform of the Universal Service Fund. Article (sub. req.) Read today's FierceTelecom Editor's Corner on the subject here.
