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.

In comments filed in the Federal Communications Commission's "Third Way" or broadband reclassification proceeding, the Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) Council conveyed its opposition to the FCC's proposals to reclassify broadband services, demonstrating that because it would lead to FTTH service providers being required to offer wholesale access to their networks to unaffiliated entities, it would significantly diminish the business case for next-generation broadband deployments.
