When the FCC gave reporters the first copies of the National Broadband Plan Monday afternoon, it was decidedly anti-digital. All 359 pages were printed and stuffed in three-ring binders. No PDF version was available, so it wasn't searchable in any way other than thumbing through the pages.
Every. Single. Page.
Fret not, lobbyists, analysts and political pundits anxiously waiting to devour every detail (or vague descriptions) outlined in the plan that has taken the better part of a year for more than 60 specialized FCC staffers to put together.
That's right. It's now in a digital format.
It will be unveiled today at the FCC's monthly meeting. It will be officially turned into Congress Wednesday.
