Next Week's FCC Meeting Should Be Interesting...

The FCC has released the agenda for its July 13 meeting and it looks like it could be a relatively busy meeting (at least for the FCC in the middle of the summer). Among the items on the agenda are approval of the long-pending Adelphia/Time Warner Cable transaction and from what we understand there are only a couple very minor conditions. Also, as part of its further efforts to crack down on data brokers who illegally obtain and sell other people's phone records, the the FCC is adopting an NAL against LocateCell.com, the databroker, for repeated failure to respond to FCC subpoenas in connection with the Commission's CPNI investigation. We expect to see continued enforcement action in this arena. In fact, the FCC's CPNI and slamming rules are the rules that the Commission seems most interested in enforcing. The interconnection rules? Not so much. Missing from the agenda is the multi-cast/must-carry item that some folks had expected to see.
