Bold, Practical National Broadband Plan
Media and Democracy Coalition
2123 Rayburn House Office Building
February 17, 2010
On the date the National Broadband Plan was originally due to Congress, public interest groups will hold a press event to call on the Federal Communications Commission to ensure that the plan, now due March 17, contains a set of bold, practical goals and policy recommendations. The groups will outline specific recommendations backed by a strong, diverse coalition of public interest groups, and that must be in the plan if it is to succeed in improving U.S. broadband access and adoption.
