The Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit today upheld the FCC’s 2011 Pole Attachment Order. Below is a statement from NCTA President & CEO Michael Powell on the decision.
“The court’s decision to affirm the FCC’s pole attachment order is a win for American consumers. By reducing the cost of attaching equipment and wires to utility poles, the changes adopted by the Commission in 2011 will help promote the deployment of broadband and telecommunications networks by cable operators and other providers.”
