Staff Analysis of the Legislation

In an effort to facilitate the deployment of rural broadband, this bill caps the rates that EMCs may charge for the collocation of broadband equipment on their poles at the Federal rate (47 U.S.C. Section 224(d)), which currently applies to Georgia Power and all other investor-owned electric utilities.
