Federal Communications Commission Chairman Julius Genachowski said the National Broadband Plan recommendations that the FCC has already begun implementing include its white spaces order, reform to pole-attachment rules, moving to free up spectrum for mobile broadband, and reform of the E-Rate program to help bring technology into schools. As for initiatives still on the way, Genachowski named a few: reform the Universal Service program, promote broadband adoption, launch incentive auctions to recover underused spectrum, and empower consumers of wired and wireless broadband.
