Federal Regulations

   WASHINGTON (CN) – In a Federal Communications Commission Order responding to a decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit on an amendment of the FCC’s cable TV inside-wiring rules, the FCC concluded that sheet rock walls are “inaccessible” because of the potential damage and cost of repair that could be caused by opening the wall to attach to the cable wire behind it.



So cable providers competing for subscribers in apartment buildings or other multiple unit arrangements can connect their cable to a predecessor company’s wire outside of buildings in which the existing cable is behind sheet rock walls, to foster competition between cable providers.
