Rereg Postponed

The FCC has postponed until June its much-anticipated vote on rules that could allow cities greater authority to regulating cable tv rates on the basic tier.

The FCC was expected to vote May 9 on changes in its “effective competition” rulemaking, but commissioner James Quello asked that the vote be delayed. Currently, cable operators are deemed to have effective competition, and are thereby exempt from local rate regulation, if there are three local broadcast signals in the market.
