Rate Regulation

The General Court of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts (State Legislature) and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) have issued regulations on the issue of cable television rate regulation. The documents in this section will provide additional information about all relevant regulations as well as any limitations which are imposed on the regulation of rates charged by pay-TV operators for the delivery of programming. Additionally, Section 9.1 in our Cable License (Contract) with Charter Communications also provides a brief description about the right of the Issuing Authority (Town of Westport) to exercise or not exercise rate regulation.
