Tuesday 10 November 2015 | 10:44 CET | News
The FCC's Consumer Advisory Committee, has recommended a clear and easy to read format to be used by US telecom operators to enable consumers to more easily compare prices and speeds. The move follows on a March order by the FCC seeking increased transparency as part of its open internet policies. Two proposed broadband consumer disclosure formats have been drawn up for fixed and mobile broadband services with input from stakeholders. Sample forms and instructions are available covering pricing and commercial terms, performance, and network management.
