The plan will provide dedicated support to extend mobile broadband to large areas of the country that are currently shut out. Federal Communications Commission chairman Julius Genachowski outlined a plan to reform and modernize the Universal Service Fund and Intercarrier Compensation system in a speech delivered at FCC headquarters. The plan would, if adopted by the Commission later this month, reform the USF/ICC to unleash a series of benefits, including expanded broadband infrastructure, for millions of Americans. The plan is designed to help deliver more value for wireless consumers, increase private investment, and spur near-term and long-term job creation. In addition, the plan will provide dedicated support to extend mobile broadband to large areas of the country that are currently shut out from the benefits of advanced mobile services.
