I don't understand how sharing interior wiring would be "discouraging competition." Quite to the contrary, it seems like all connectivity suppliers would be vying for multi-family dwelling customers. See:

The current FCC are so disingenuous - it's really frustrating to see. This is just a way for Verizon and AT&T to protect their margins and keep competition out.

The FCC's declaratory ruling preempts San Francisco's ordinance to the degree that it requires the sharing of "in-use" wiring. That's very narrow - if the wiring is in use, it's not usable by a competitor. And for Sonic, we deploy new fiber, so we don't use existing wiring, in-use or not.

In parallel, the FCC opened up a notice of proposed rulemaking, to examine a wide array of competitive barriers to entry. These include exclusive marketing agreements and other structures that impede our access. I'm really please to see the FCC taking up these issues.
