Google Strikes An Upbeat Note With FCC On Title II

Google, trying to look on the bright side of Title II, reminded the FCC that it would get access to utility poles which would be a big plus for Google Fiber.

In a letter Tuesday to the FCC, Google’s director of communications law Austin Schlick highlighted a potential positive for the company if Title II kicks in. As a regulated telecom service, Google Fiber would get access to utility poles and other essential infrastructure owned by utilities. The FCC should make sure this happens because it would promote competition and spur more investment and deployment of broadband internet service, Schlick argued.
