FCC: Local Franchise Authorities Can't Regulate Broadband

The FCC has voted to confirm that a local franchise authority's (LFA) ability to regulate cable service does not extend to broadband and other non-cable services, and that in-kind commitments those authorities get from providers as part of franchise agreements count toward the 5% franchise fee cap, with the exception of providing public, educational and government (PEG) channels.

The FCC is also asking for input on whether it should extend the prohibition on LFA regulation to state franchises and state regulations.
