A Big Regulatory Win In D.C. For Charter Spectrum


HAIKU, HAWAII — In a major win for the company a majority of Hawaiian island residents receive both broadcast and cable television stations, the FCC has ruled that Charter Communications is subject to effective competition under the statutory local exchange carrier (LEC) test.

As a result, local franchise authorities on the island of Kauai, in addition to 32 communities in Massachusetts, may not regulate basic-tier cable rates.

Thank AT&T for swaying the Commission in a unanimous 5-0 ruling.
