FCC Announces Second Public Hearing for Broadband Consumer Labels Rules

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will host its second virtual public hearing regarding its proposed broadband consumer labels rules on April 7, 2022, at 1:30 PM.  The hearing will be livestreamed at FCC.gov. The hearing will feature discussion among consumers, nonprofit organizations, and academics regarding the kinds of information that consumers need when choosing a broadband service provider. The FCC is inviting the public to submit questions in advance or during the hearing.

The hearings will be part of the administrative record for the FCC’s Notice of Proposed Rulemaking seeking comment on how the FCC should fulfill its mandate under the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act to issue rules requiring broadband service providers to provide consumers with certain information at the point of sale.
