According to published reports, AT&T asked the Connecticut Department of Public Utility Control (DPUC) yesterday if it must get consent agreements for placing its U-verse equipment in the state.
The Department of Public Utility Control had previously found that AT&T did not give enough notice to some nearby property owners and municipalities before installing its video-ready access devices in AT&T boxes statewide, according to the Stamford Advocate.
In yesterday’s appeal, AT&T asked for clarification of the ruling and said that it should not be applied retroactively.
AT&T said it had sent letters to property owners in regards to the installation of equipment, but a DPUC supervisor said the notices were not sufficient in some cases to obtain consent from the owners.
Stamford, Bridgeport and Danbury filed a complaint with the state department last year that said they had concerns about the safety of the equipment.
