Kelley Drye Client Advisory

On Thursday June 12, 2008, the Federal Communications Commission released an order on reconsideration, a report and order (Form 477 Order), and a further notice of proposed rulemaking addressing Form 477 and how the FCC collects broadband data. Specifically, the Commission adopted additional reporting requirements for all facilities-based providers of wired, terrestrial wireless, and satellite broadband services, including interconnected VoIP services. Kelley Drye’s Communications Practice Group has prepared a Client Advisory describing the provisions under the Form 477 Order and the comments sought in the Further Notice.
