The Data Innovation Initiative is a cross-agency effort to modernize and streamline how the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) collects, uses, and disseminates data. Its goals are improving the agency's fact-based, data-driven decision-making while lowering barriers and burdens to filing necessary information and sharing data more effectively to spur innovation, new competition, and markets.
