WEBCAST: FCC Broadband Labels Hearing 1 – Transparency

YouTubeOn Friday March 11 2022 starting from 1:30pm-3:30pm EST (16:30-20:30 UTC) the United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will hold the first of a series of virtual public hearings as a part of its broadband consumer labels rulemaking proceeding. The purpose of these hearing is to assess how consumers evaluate internet service plans and whether current disclosures are sufficient. Specifically, the first hearing will evaluate the effectiveness of the current transparency rule and provide necessary background for the new label requirement, including whether additional disclosure requirements are necessary. The meeting will stream with open captioning and American Sign Language.  Questions can be submitted by sending an email to BroadbandLabelsHearing@fcc.gov.
