FCC Reverses Order Requiring Expansion of Broadband Service

The U.S. Federal Communications Commission is reversing a requirement imposed under the Obama administration that Charter Communications Inc. extend broadband service to 1 million households already served by a competitor. The decision was a win for a group representing smaller cable companies that sought to overturn the "overbuild" requirement and marked the latest reversal of Obama-era requirements by the new Republican-led FCC under President Donald Trump.
