The Regulatory Mix, TMI’s daily blog of regulatory activities, is a snapshot of PUC, FCC, legislative, and occasionally court issues that our regulatory monitoring team uncovers each day. Depending on their significance, some items may be the subject of a TMI Briefing.
The FCC’s Consumer Advisory Committee (CAC) has released proposed disclosure formats (formats) for the consumer-facing disclosures required by the FCC’s Open Internet rules. There are separate formats for fixed and mobile broadband. The formats must be approved by the FCC’s Wireline Competition, Wireless Telecommunications, and Consumer & Governmental Affairs Bureaus (the Bureaus). The Bureaus will issue a Public Notice announcing whether the proposed formats meet their expectations. TMI Briefing Service subscribers see Briefing dated 11/11/15.
