Statement on the FCC’s Open Meeting Agenda Item: Facilitating the Deployment of Broadband Infrastructure
February 22, 2022
"Pole attachment regulation significantly impacts the length of time it takes to connect families and small businesses to high-speed internet service, especially in rural areas that require access to multiple poles for every home served. The FCC initiating this proceeding will be a critical step to achieving 100% connectivity in the U.S., because when poles can be accessed in a timely, fair, and cost-effective way, more people get connected faster."
