At the FCC, we are committed to unlocking our agencies data and putting open, machine readable data into the hands of citizen developers and the community. Let us know how we can improve FCC.gov/Data

How can FCC data be more useful to the public?

  • 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".

  3. Create a Start Up package for small business broadcasters to get started.

    It would be helpful to have a step by step guide to get started in broadcasting. I've visited your site on several occasions and find it overwhelming to try and piece it all together. I don't know where to begin.

  6. What is Data? or Big Data? data is information, big data is lots of information.

    when you see it as information,its easier to understand what it is,and why it needs to be protected,and secured.

  8. Drop 1+ dialing on landlines

    How can we start a petition to have land-line phones drop the 1+ when dialing. Sometimes in the same area code you use 1+ other times you don't. With today's technology the 1+ is not necessary, the systems know what is long distance and what is not.

  11. explain with clarity what is going on instead of trying to sneak in higher costs only people with lots of money can afford.

    stop what you are currently doing. perhaps stick with the idea that will make people happy like in other countries.

  14. Force Verizon to answer all questions in my complaint, then enforce the law against verizon.

    Verizon did not answer questions in my complaint. They did not provide evidence, proof or the law. The FCC provided an investigator that covers up for Verizon, answers did not address the issues in the complaint. Verizon continues to illegally over charge me in monthly invoices, fees and FSLC. FCC does not enforce laws, does not force carrier to comply with the law. Its a waste of time to file a complaint, since nothing gets resolved, status quo, Verizon is protected by the FCC from complying with the law.

  15. Simplify the report process for robocalls to a single number entry form and act based on statistics and frequency.

    Why not allowing people to report robocall numbers in a simple box instead of the overwhelming form currently used.

    Act on it based on statistics or frequency of the reported number, and make carriers responsible for violators.

    We have the technology to do it. Get over the bureaucracy-minded attitude and do something to stop this people.

  17. Firmware on cell phone to prevent texting or talking on phone while in motion.

    We see it on the news, on the road, texting or talking on the phone contributing to injury or DEATH because the user was distracted while driving. I see people walking and texting not aware of their surroundings, walking across parking lots unaware of vehicles moving. My suggestion, embed in the software the feature that detects movement and put the phone into sleep mode, give the user a 30 second window to complete business and turn off the phone. after two warnings the phone goes to sleep. It is very scary to see people driving and trying to text or…

  18. If you shut down the internet and regulate information? We have to assume that this means war and we will just shut it down..

    The war on information is Naziism and cannot be allowed in the land of the FREE. We no longer need government. We have simply outgrown them. We have taken back our consent to be governed by FORCE. Electricity can be free thanks to the true Father of Our Country Nicola Tesla ..There for it only stands to reason that the internet should be free. Information should be free. Life should be free and beautiful but the greed in men's hearts wants to enslave and hold down human progress and most importantly it is an attack on LOVE and what is…
