Technology Transitions Info Session

Consumer and Governmental Affairs Bureau
Federal Communications Commission
September 26, 2016
1 pm -- 2 pm

The purpose of this Info Session is to provide consumers with information about “technology transitions” in the telecommunications marketplace. Providers around the country are upgrading the technology that delivers their services to homes. Existing copper-based networks, originally built for voice-only services, are being replaced with alternative platforms capable of providing a variety of services such as higher-speed broadband, video, voice, and interactive features. At this Info Session, FCC subject matter experts will share information about how the progress of technology transitions are impacting the consumer experience, including but not limited to, service implications, backup power issues, and accessibility concerns.

Though an RSVP is not necessary, we are encouraging attendees to send an email to [email protected] by September 23. Please remember to bring a current, government-issued photo ID to enter the building on the day of the event.
