FCC Sets Workshop Dates For Net Neutrality Codification Proposal


The Federal Communications Commission will hold public workshops this month and next on its proposal to codify and expand network neutrality guidelines.

The first workshop, dealing with technical issues, will be on Dec. 8. A week later (Dec. 15), it will tackle the speech and "democratic engagement."

The January workshops--two of them--will deal with innovation and investment.

The workshop has become a popular venue for vetting issues in the FCC headed by Julius Genachowski. They have included numerous ones on issues surrounding the national broadband plan and a couple to tee up the 2010 quadrennial ownership review.
