Call for Action
The Alarm Industry Communications Committee (AICC), a committee of The Monitoring Association (TMA), is requesting your help in this survey to protect your company’s interest in Internet communications in a proceeding now before the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). The FCC is once again considering, after several attempts, rules of the road for broadband Internet access service (BIAS) providers which are fair to industries that use the Internet, as the monitoring industry does.
These BIAS carriers are the companies with whom you contract for Internet service, and which allow the transmission of information and access to third party websites like YouTube. Importantly, quality of Internet service directly impacts the quality and speed of video transmission, which is an integral and growing aspect of alarm monitoring.
Please answer the following questions to the best of your knowledge. If you do not know an answer, simply indicate so. If this has occurred more than once, describe the one you feel impacted your company the most. Your company’s identity and specific responses will be kept confidential and will not be disclosed to third parties, including government agencies, without your permission.
Your time and attention are greatly appreciated. If you have any questions or comments, please contact Ben Dickens (firstname.lastname@example.org, 202-828-5510) or Sal Taillefer (email@example.com, 202-828-5562).
