CLOSED: A New FCC.gov - Feedback


This forum is now closed. There will be future opportunities to comment on the FCC.gov website.*

We will be rolling out updates to the new FCC.gov on a regular basis. Share your thoughts and ideas on what to add to the next release, or ways we can improve the user experience or functionality on FCC.gov.

How can we improve the new FCC.gov?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Can all the databases for all the data related to the FRNs be linked??

    Consider linking all databases related to one FRN. I have to go back and forth between MyIBFS, ULS, Redlight, etc., when they should be connected.

    • Too Big to Fail

      you look too big to fail. The only reason I searched this site was to find out what an FCC user fee is. Wow, I can see my money went to pay for the flashy website.

      • I can find the correct category to file a 'unwanted text message' spam.

        I can find the correct category to file a 'unwanted text message' spam. If you could make your online form easier that would be great.

        • regulate the monopolies help offer choices to the rural users

          In my area, there is only one cable provider and one phone provider, broadband service is tightly controlled by one provider. Suggest opening the area to more provider so consumers like myself have choices

          • email confirmation/submission page to sender

            I forgot to print the submission page with the confirmation number.
            There is no way of retrieving it electronically.
            Sending the sender an email confirmation will solve this issue.

            • Allow a place where consumers can post which sites are being degraded by which telecom companies.

              There is no place to complain about how Century Link is downthrottlin/degrading my Netflix. I have no better alternatives either. I am stuck with slow streaming. I hear we are like ranked 15th in the world for our slow telecom services that are offered in the U.S. Japan and S. Korea are much better. I pull up many documents that talk about degrading on this site but no way to make formal complaint? Your site is conflicted as to whether it is an issue. I may not be an issue for FCC but it is with consumers. FCC needs to…

              • Template Form for Questions

                For any given topic, offer a form that guides people in how to frame their questions or suggestions. It would be helpful to give me a template for a 1-page policy memo, a couple of fields for a question, etc.

                  • Nice clean look, but could be hard for those who don't use search

                    The search needs to be very good since this site communicates so much information on a regular basis. I like it, but i know from usability tests that if your demographics are mostly people over 50, you'll need to make the search field very large and prominent or they wont use it.

                            • Make it usable by the people not lawyers and technicians.

                              It does not appear that your average American could make heads or tails of this website.
                              As a taxpayer I want to know what this agency is doing.

                                  Add a fade effect instead of a direct hover effect to these icons. It would provide a smoother layout and experience.
