The Federal Communications Commission says it intends to move forward quickly with key recommendations in its national broadband plan — even though a federal appeals court this week undermined the agency's legal authority to regulate broadband.

The FCC needs that authority to move ahead with many parts of the broadband plan. Among them: a proposal to expand Internet access by tapping the fund that subsidizes telephone service in poor and rural areas.

The FCC laid out its 2010 "broadband action agenda" Thursday without indicating how it will proceed in light of the court ruling. But the agency says it will ensure it has the legal authority it needs for its sweeping plan to increase broadband usage and Internet speeds.
