FCC's new net neutrality order could drive up pole attachment rates for cable MSOs

One of the potential drawbacks of the FCC's new neutrality rules is that cable MSOs could see the cost of pole attachment rates rise.

Traditionally, pole attachment rates have always been higher for traditional telcos, but now that cable operators are also being classified as telecom providers under Title II of the FCC's Open Internet Order, which went into effect Jan. 12, they could also see an increase.
