The article notes that Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Kevin Martin wants rules that would ban cable companies and property owner agreements that allow exclusive access to all apartments in a building. He is concerned that companies have locked up big buildings through long-term deals that prevent competitors access to the same facilities. The FCC has scheduled a vote but it was unclear whether Martin had the votes for his plan.
