FCC Kills Broadband Competition Law

This is crazy”: FCC kills part of San Francisco’s broadband-competition law

The Federal Communications Commission today voted to preempt part of a San Francisco ordinance that promotes broadband competition in apartment buildings and other multi-tenant structures. 

The goal of the city law is clearly to give residents the ability to switch from one ISP to another and allow whichever ISP the resident chooses to use the wire heading into that resident's apartment unit.

Pai claimed that the city's rule "deters broadband deployment" and infringes on the FCC's regulation of cable wiring. The Pai-led Republican majority ensured that the preemption passed with a 3-2 vote, while the FCC's two Democrats voted against the preemption.
Let's see how they prevent Wireless competition
