This morning, two of the FCC’s Broadband Plan proceedings that were adopted at the April 21 open meeting were published in the Federal Register, thus starting the clock for comments and replies. The first item published is the Commission’s Notice of Inquiry regarding its proposed “Cyber Security Certification Program," which we discussed in detail last month. Comments for this proceeding are due by July 12, 2010, with replies due by September 8, 2010.
The second item that was published concerns the Notice of Inquiry entitled “Effects on Broadband Communications Networks of Damage to or Failure of Network Equipment or Severe Overload.” Comments in this proceeding are due by June 25, 2010, with replies due by July 26, 2010.
There are still a few items yet to be published from the April 21 open meeting -- USF Reform NOI/NPRM and the Cable Gateway NOI/CableCARD FNPRM -- but we expect these to appear in the Federal Register in the near future. We will post their comment dates here as soon as they are available.
