Inside wiring rules have changed and most likely will change some more. This will affect all condominium associations with master contracts for telephone and video services. Recent FCC rules increase access rights to installed wiring. That means that the new competitor on the block doesn’t have to punch holes in your drywall to wire a unit. Instead, it will be able to use cable lines and sub-loops installed by the current providers.
Anticipated new rules will outlaw exclusive contracts and invalidate existing exclusive contracts. Invalidation of existing contracts may draw a challenging lawsuit but the probability of the new rules should assist condos in their negotiations with providers. Stay tuned.Share this:
