Nature and Extent of Confidentiality: The Commission will continue to allow respondents to certify on the submission interface that some subscribership data contained in that submission are privileged or confidential commercial or financial information and that disclosure of such information would likely cause substantial harm to the competitive position of the entity making the submission. If the Commission receives a request for, or proposes to disclose such information, the respondent would be required to show, pursuant to Commission rules for withholding from public inspection information submitted to the Commission, that the information in question is entitled to confidential treatment. We will retain our current policies and procedures regarding the protection of submitted FCC Form 477 data subject to confidential treatment, including the use of only non-company specific aggregates of subscribership data in our published reports. Most of the broadband deployment data to be collected on Form 477 as a result of modifications will be made publicly available. NTIA currently publishes similar data on the National Broadband Map Web site at www.broadbandmap.gov. The Commission will coordinate with NTIA to continue the publication of the National Broadband Map using the data to be collected through modifications to Form 477. The one exception is that mobile broadband and voice providers can request confidential treatment of their deployment data by spectrum band.
Needs and Uses: FCC Form 477 gathers information on the development of local telephone competition, including telephone services and interconnected Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) services, and on the deployment of broadband Internet access services.
