ISPs Now Required to Show Broadband “Nutrition Facts” Labels: We Can Help

April 29, 2024|LB Networks

The FCC recently announced that major ISPs are now required to show ‘Nutrition Fact’ labels for broadband. “The majority of providers must display at the point of sale clear, easy-to-understand, and accurate information about the cost and performance of broadband services by April 10, 2024. Providers with 100,000 or fewer subscriber lines must do so by October 10, 2024. Those points of sale include online and in-store,” stated FCC.gov.

Labels must include:

  • Broadband prices
  • Introductory rates
  • Data allowances
  • Broad speeds
  • Network Management practices link
  • Privacy policy link
  • And more

Labels must also be machine-readable, so third parties can easily create comparison-shopping tools for consumers.

You can read all the requirements and download sample pdf labels, customizable template files, and machine-readable formats on www.fcc.gov/broadbandlabels.
