    Part 1. This is Part 2.

      Figured I’d link the more recent one, as neither appears to have been posted here before.

        All good. I just posted it for Lobsters’ convenience.

      I wonder if the FCC’s ruling on one-touch make-ready would’ve been helpful for the author. I’d imagine that it’d be far more cost effective, and a quick Google Street View tour of his area looked like there are plenty of utility poles to use.

        It appears that one-touch wouldn’t be available in PA.

          That wikipedia article is outdated after the FCCs announcement in August.

          In this map the blue states are ones that could make their own regulations - the white ones would fall under the new federal regulations clearing the way for OTMR, I believe.

          It’s also an interesting question if the language the FCC used would have impact on those 20 self regulating states as well:

          in a Declaratory Ruling, the FCC made clear that blanket state and local moratoria on telecommunications services and facilities deployment are barred by the Communications Act because they, in the language of Section 253(a), “prohibit or have the effect of prohibiting the ability of any entity to provide any interstate or intrastate telecommunications service.”

            Thank goodness, about time!
