So what are the burdens associated with the MDU`s large-scale agreements? Although the FCC has not adopted rules providing internal wiring exclusively dedicated to the provision of Internet services, please note that FCC procedures may apply, at least in practice, to any internal wiring installed by a historical provider that provides both wiring and Internet services to MDU residents. In addition, it is not clear whether and how the FCC`s disposition procedures apply to internal wiring if you or one of your customers terminate the provider`s cable, but not Internet services, if you or one of your customers terminate the provider`s cable. In order to avoid uncertainty in this regard, it is helpful to ensure that your service contract with the supplier clearly and accurately defines the procedures applicable for the provision of the internal wiring of the historical supplier after the completion of one or both services of the supplier. TL;DR: Condo Building wants to change ISPs, but has reached an agreement with Comcast until 2022. The FCC`s ruling appears to null and void this agreement, but the HOA is not in a position to determine what to do next and to follow the end of the agreement without legal fees. Any other advice you could give on how to terminate such a contract if Comcast gives serious pushbacks would be great. I certainly have access to the full agreement, but I will obviously not publish it. But with only a little research, it`s pretty easy to dig up the November 2007 FCC ruling that mass service agreements between “multichannel video programmers” (comcast) and multi-family buildings (i.e. our building) are not applicable. The answer is twofold: first, the owner may decide to assume this obligation for the same reason that he or she decides to pay for certain services (for example. B waste management) or for certain amenities (. B for example, swimming pool, community services and fitness) that benefit residents, including “free” services as a help to residents, increases renting (or in the case of housing).
, the marketing) of any living unit and therefore of the total assets. Second, communication services that are purchased in large quantities, like some other products, may arrive at a lower unit price. In other words, at a unit cost, mass communication services are offered to residents with a significant discount. In general, cable and Internet services cost at least 50% less than a single-family homeowner who would pay for the same services by individual subscription. The benefits of a mass plan go both to the MDU community (which acquires mass service with a substantial discount) and to the service provider (which guarantees 100% penetration of the mini-market, which is owned by MDU). Whether you should negotiate when installing the ownership of the internal wiring or for the procedures for replacing such wiring at the end of the service depends to a large extent on the specific facts of your respective agreement and the estimated costs associated with replacing some internal wiring if the incumbent provider removes it at the end of its wiring services.
