• On August 5, 2011, the FCC released a Notice of Inquiry (NOI) seeking information for next year’s “section 706” report, which borrows its name from section 706 of the 1996 Act, on whether broadband is being deployed to all Americans in a reasonable and timely fashion. The most recent report, released May 20, 2011, found that broadband deployment was not reasonable and timely. Comments are due September 6, 2011, and Reply Comments are due October 4, 2011. The NOI may be found here.
