A National Broadband Clearinghouse

October 14th, 2009 by Matt Warner

Matt Warner OIIt's not just the FCC that's interested in figuring out the best way to use and deploy broadband.   We've learned that lots of organizations: towns and cities, state governments, small businesses, non-profits, and others are also looking at the question. Several parties have suggested that an online clearinghouse of broadband data and best practices would make it much easier for everyone to get this information easily.  Indeed, the Federal-State Joint Conference on Advanced Services has already launched its own clearinghouse at www.BroadbandBestPractices.org that provides an inventory of broadband projects, programs and best practices.  We welcome this contribution.   To continue the discussion about the idea of a broadband clearinghouse, the Commission has released a Public Notice seeking comment about the what, who, and how: What should the clearinghouse contain? Who is the intended audience? Who should maintain or edit the clearinghouse? And how should the clearinghouse be designed to maximize its potential benefit? Please read the Public Notice and file comments using either ECFS Express or our standard submission page if you need to attach a file.  Note that your comments pertain to Public Notice #10.  Or, you can post comments on this blog.  Your comments will be included in the record for the National Broadband Plan
