The Multicultural Media, Telecom and Internet Council (MMTC) is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting and preserving equal opportunity and civil rights in the mass media, telecommunications and broadband industries, and closing the digital divide. MMTC is generally recognized as the nation’s leading advocate for minority advancement in communications.
The Multicultural Media, Telecom and Internet Council (MMTC) and the National Association of Black Owned Broadcasters (NABOB) have filed a petition in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit asking the court to review the Federal Communications Commission’s lack of action on MMTC’s proposal to extend the 1992 Cable Procurement Rule to all communications and high tech industries.
Today, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) authorized the use of its common carrier application review procedures for its broadcast foreign ownership applications.
In the White Paper, MMTC finds that “Congress and the FCC can address the persistence of the negligible representation of minority- and women-owned business enterprises (collectively, ‘MWBEs’) in the wireless industry through the development and support of incentives for MWBEs.”
The Multicultural Media, Telecom and Internet Council’s (MMTC) 14th Annual Access to Capital and Telecom Policy Conference convenes hundreds of media and telecom industry experts, policymakers, innovators, entrepreneurs, and investors.
