Implementation of the Cable Communications Policy Act of 1984 as Amended by the Cable Television Consumer Protection and Competition Act of 1992
Document Number: 2018-22356
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-10-15
Agency: Federal Communications Commission, Agencies and Commissions
In this document, the Commission seeks comment on two cable franchising issues raised by the remand from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit in Montgomery County, Md. et al. v. FCC. The Commission tentatively concludes that, with limited exceptions, ``cable-related, in-kind contributions'' required by a franchising agreement should be treated as ``franchise fees'' subject to the statutory five percent cap on franchise fees set forth in Communications Act. It also tentatively concludes that the mixed-use network ruling should be applied to incumbent cable operators to prohibit LFAs from using their video franchising authority to regulate the provision of most non-cable services, including telecommunications services and information services such as broadband internet access service, offered over a cable system by an incumbent cable operator. These tentative conclusions are intended to promote competition by fostering parity between incumbents and new entrants and helping to ensure that local franchising requirements do not discourage cable operators from investing in new facilities and services.
