TUESDAY March 16, 2010
SF Communications Chapter
Speaker: Helen Mickiewicz, California Public Utilities Commission

The FCC is the federal agency which presently is overseeing the deployment and delivery of broadband services.? At present, a federal court case, involving Comcast, has cast into question the extent to which the FCC can regulate broadband services and/or their providers.? This presentation will describe the FCC – it’s political make-up and organizational structure.? I will discuss the history of the FCC’s jurisdictional relationship to the states, providing examples of litigation over jurisdiction, and then of cooperation between the states and the FCC which produced a positive result for consumers.? Against the background of the ongoing jurisdictional tension, I will discuss the present focus on broadband regulation.? Who should?? Who shouldn’t?? Should anyone?
