FCC chief says emergency broadband help is coming

The FCC's “most urgent priority” is providing broadband to Americans struggling to work or educate themselves remotely, Acting Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel told the National Association of Counties yesterday. Rosenworcel said her current focus is on “executing on the directives” laid out for the FCC within the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan, including more than $7 billion to improve remote broadband access for schools and libraries supported by the agency’s E-Rate program. She also said the FCC has already received more than 380 inquires from ISPs interested in supporting $3.2 billion broadband subsidies for low-income households. Ryan Johnston reports.

Starting in early May, data generated after a crash will be sent directly from consumer vehicles to 450 public safety answering points spread across California, rather than first to an OnStar dispatcher who would then pass it along to emergency responders.

In a statement Tuesday, Miami officials acknowledged the university is investigating “a data security incident” involving Accellion, which it said was used by a handful of users to movie files too large to be attached to an email, though no other university systems were affected.
