Federal Communications Commission

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is an independent United States government agency.  The FCC was established by the Communications Act of 1934 and is charged with regulating interstate and international communications by radio, television, telephone, wire, satellite and cable.  The FCC’s jurisdiction covers the 50 States, the District of Columbia, and U.S. possessions.  At the FCC, we’re committed to helping consumers through information sharing, complaint mediation, and regulatory policy.  We believe that consumers deserve clear, complete information to help them make the best choices in communications services.  The FCC’s Consumer Publications Library (http://www.fcc.gov/encyclopedia/consumer-publications-library) provides you with information so you can get the best value from your telephone, television, and Internet service, file a complaint, or learn about consumer protection regulations.  In addition, the FCC provides information in large print, Braille, Spanish, and other languages upon request.  Consumers may file complaints online at http://www.fcc.gov/complaints  or by contacting the FCC toll-free at 1-888-CALL-FCC (1-888-225-5322), or 1-888-TELL-FCC (TTY) (1-888-835-5322).
