FCC schedules field hearing on communications infrastructure

The Federal Communications Commission will hold its first field hearing to examine the resiliency of the nation’s communications infrastructure to natural disasters and during other crisis Tuesday, Feb. 5.

The morning session will be held at the Alexander Hamilton U.S. Customs House from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., and the afternoon session will take place at the Stevens Institute of Technology, Babbio Center, from 2:30 p.m. till 6:30 p.m.

The FCC also will stream the meetings online.
