FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski will deliver remarks on proposed reforms to the Universal Service Fund (USF) and Intercarrier Compensation (ICC) system. Modernizing USF and ICC is critical to connecting rural consumers to 21st century broadband and mobility, and was a central recommendation of the FCC’s National Broadband Plan. Staff will circulate a USF/ICC reform order to the Commissioners for their consideration at the Commission’s October 27 open meeting.
