HUNTINGTON — Federal Communications Commission consumer experts will visit the Cabell County Library in Huntington at 4 p.m. Tuesday, according to a news release from the agency.

The Huntington visit is part of the FCC’s “Appalachia Rural Road Trip.” FCC staff will host a series of public meetings and presentations through Friday, Dec. 7, that will give the FCC opportunities to discuss consumer-oriented issues in rural areas.

The events will focus primarily on helping consumers deal with robocalls, spoofing and phone scam alerts; slamming, cramming, and other phone billing issues; broadband adoption; TV stations changing frequencies; telehealth; lost and stolen mobile devices; and how to file comments and complaints with the FCC.

Representatives from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs will join the Appalachia Rural Road Trip to provide information about veterans’ benefits.

Following the Huntington visit, the FCC will be at the Hardin County Public Library in Radcliff, Kentucky, at 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 5, and at the Hopkinsville-Christian County Public Library in Hopkinsville, Kentucky, at 10:30 a.m. Friday, Dec. 7.
