SPOTLIGHT: FTTH Council lobbies Congress


Not sure why this should come as any surprise, but the FTTH Council is lobbying Congress: Fiber deployment to U.S. homes and businesses is "critical to U.S. competitiveness in the 21st century," it says. The council is lobbying for the passage of the Advanced Telecommunications and Opportunities Reform Act, which would establish a system of national video franchising, while doing away with the old regional franchise system. "Fiber networks are good for our communities, and passing this bill means more fiber to more Americans sooner," says FTTH Council President Joe Savage.
