Broadband Regulation

The Fiber Broadband Association believes that by reducing regulation, we can propel investment in all-fiber infrastructure.  In the past, the Fiber Broadband Association has urged regulators to: not mandate unbundling of fiber facilities; not impose onerous open internet requirements on broadband providers; not require battery back up in all-fiber networks; and not regulate the prices for business data services provided over all-fiber facilities. In addition, the Fiber Broadband Association advocates for the removal of public and private barriers to investment, such as unreasonable fees for access to poles and rights of way and unreasonable franchise requirements.

Letter to the FCC's Broadband Executive Order Working Group providing the views of the Fiber-to-the-Home Council (FTTH Council or Council) on facilitating access to federal lands for the deployment and use of all-fiber networks. The FTTH Council represents service providers, equipment vendors, and construction companies working to deploy all-fiber networks throughout the United States. These entities often require access to rights-of-way (ROW) on federal lands, and, from our conversations with them, we know they appreciate the efforts of those agencies that facilitate access.
