  • The FCC last week released its order seeking comment on numerous proposed changes to its pole attachment regulations. Chairman Pai stated he wants “creative and common sense” pole attachment regulations to address what the Commission considers to be “unreasonable costs and delays” in the pole attachment process. This rulemaking creates significant challenges and opportunities for electric utility pole owners and we intend to participate vigorously.
