FCC's Technological Advisory Council

Technological Advisory Council

Federal Communications Commission
Tuesday, September 27 2011
1:00 pm to 4:00

The TAC is helping the FCC to continue the momentum of ideas and recommendations in the National Broadband Plan, such as how broadband communications can be part of the solution for the delivery and cost containment of health care, for energy and environmental conservation, for education innovation and in the creation of jobs.

At its initial meeting held on November 4, 2010, TAC members had identified a number of technology areas that could influence the creation of jobs or were issues affecting the nation’s economic competiveness. Since that initial meeting of the TAC, members have helped to further prioritize and develop some of these ideas. The Technical Advisory Council members will discuss this work, outline progress to date and discuss possible further work.
