  • Last week, the Comment period closed for a Petition for Preemption, which asked the FCC to preempt an ordinance adopted by the City of San Francisco that would require multiple dwelling unit (MDU) owners to allow competing service providers access to their wiring infrastructure within a building. Comments in support of preemption focused on the inconsistency of the ordinance with existing Commission policy, including the Bulk Billing Order. The Reply Comment Deadline is June 8.
