Designated Reserve Ratio for 2018, 60724 [2017-27539]

Download as PDF sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES 60724 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 245 / Friday, December 22, 2017 / Notices FCC 11–50, the Commission adopted rules that relate to the implementation of section 224 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, regarding access to poles that are owned or controlled by utilities. Under the Commission’s rules, utilities must provide cable television systems and telecommunications carriers (collectively, ‘‘attachers’’) with nondiscriminatory access to attach facilities to poles, ducts, conduits, or rights-ofway owned or controlled by the utilities (collectively, ‘‘pole attachments’’). However, utilities may deny in writing those pole attachment applications where there is insufficient capacity on a pole, or for reasons of safety, reliability, and generally applicable engineering purposes. Commission rules also create a series of deadlines or ‘‘timelines’’ by which attachers request and receive permission from utilities for pole attachments. The first stage of the timeline requires utilities to survey the requested poles where access is requested and to perform an engineering analysis. Utilities may notify attachers when they have completed their surveys of the affected poles. With regard to the second stage of the timeline, utilities must present to attachers an estimate of charges for preparing a pole for a new attachment (‘‘make-ready’’ work). With regard to the make-ready stage of the timeline, utilities are required to send notices of impending make-ready work to entities with existing attachments on the pole. Such notification letters are sent when a make-ready schedule is established. If the make-ready period is interrupted, or if the pole owner asserts its right to a 15-day extension of time to perform make-ready work, then notification letters also are required from the utility to the new attacher. Additionally, the Order adopted a rule requiring utilities to make available and keep up-to-date a reasonably sufficient list of approved contractors to perform surveys and make-ready work in the communications space of a utility pole. If an attacher uses a utilityapproved contractor, then it must notify the utility and invite the utility to send a representative to oversee the work. Finally, the Order also broadened the existing enforcement process by permitting incumbent local exchange carriers (LECs) to file complaints alleging that the pole attachment rates, terms, or conditions demanded by utilities are unjust or unreasonable. If an incumbent LEC can demonstrate that it is similarly situated to an attacher that is a telecommunications carrier or a cable television system (through relevant evidence, including pole VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:59 Dec 21, 2017 Jkt 244001 attachment agreements), then it can gain comparable pole attachment rates, terms, and condition as the similarlysituated carrier. The paperwork burdens for this provision are contained in OMB Collection No. 3060–0392. The Order also encourages incumbent LECs that benefit from lower pole attachment costs to file data at the Commission that demonstrate that the benefits are being passed on to consumers.
