CCTA doesn’t want access to inside wiring broadened
The Canadian Cable Telecommunications Association (CCTA) tells the CRTC that it should not amend its regulations to broaden third-party access to inside wiring to include properties such as hospitals, hotels, nursing homes and other commercial and institutional multiple-unit dwellings (CCR, Aug. 19/05). The organization states that changing the regulations would "lead to the use of cable assets by competing service providers at a fee well below a just and reasonable rate. " In 2002, the CRTC set a rate of 52 cents per subscriber per month for third-party use of inside wiring (CCR Update, Sept. 4/02). The CCTA notes that a separate costing analysis would be required to assess the total costs related to the use of all the wiring installed in a commercial or institutional building. The organization also calls the commission’s policy with regard to third-party use of inside wiring on residential single-unit and multiple-unit dwellings "an imperfect exercise."
