Charter Statement on FCC’s Proceeding on Resolving Pole Replacement Disputes

March 16, 2022

“Charter applauds the FCC’s continued steps forward to facilitate broadband deployment across the U.S. through timely, fair, and cost-effective access to utility poles. Pole attachment regulation significantly impacts how quickly a provider is able to connect families and small businesses to high-speed internet service, especially in unserved, rural areas that require access to multiple poles to connect each home. We greatly appreciate Chairwoman Rosenworcel’s leadership in launching this proceeding, which is a critical first step in ensuring more people get online faster and achieving 100% connectivity across the U.S.”
