FCC seeks extension for national broadband plan

Post by Linnea » 01-07-2010 04:26 AM

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Federal Communications Commission is asking Congress to give it another month to produce a national broadband plan.

The plan is due to lawmakers by Feb. 17. It was mandated by last year's economic stimulus bill and will lay out a policy roadmap for ensuring that all Americans have access to affordable high-speed Internet service.

The agency is asking for a one-month extension to finish digging through the massive volume of public comments that it has received over the past 11 months as it has gathered input on how to make universal broadband a reality. The team preparing the plan also wants more time to brief the agency's five commissioners and members of Congress.
