By John Eggerton -- Broadcasting & Cable, 9/15/2010 4:20:21 PMissuing a public notice to "improve the FCC's understanding of business broadband needs," calling it the "next step" advancing the FCC's small business broadband agenda.

FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski announced the notice in a speech Tuesday to a meeting with eBay's top online sellers.
"America's small businesses need fast, affordable broadband access to compete globally, create jobs, and operate more effectively," said Genachowski. "This important step will enable the FCC to analyze the broadband business marketplace with the goal of ensuring that small businesses realize the maximum benefits of broadband services and competition."
