A Webinar to Understand the Phone Network Transition and Defend Your Communication Rights

The largest telephone companies in the U.S. have announced they want to upgrade the technology that delivers phone service to an all internet-protocol (IP) based telephone network. The telephone has made universal communications possible keeping families connected, becoming a lifeline in times of crisis, and an economic engine for small businesses.
In order for our communities to continue to experience the benefits of the telephone, we must get involved. Over the coming months the Federal Communications Commission and other government agencies will be considering how to roll out this transition.
Join an interactive webinar to find out more about this national phone transition and learn how you can get involved by using a new toolkit called “What’s the Hang Up” developed by Public Knowledge and the Center for Media Justice.
