FCC Adopts Consent Decree Following its Investigation of a Premature Transfer of Control, in Violation of Section 214 of the Act and FCC Rules


On September 26, 2008, the FCC adopted a consent decree agreed upon by the Enforcement Bureau and Knology, Inc. Prior to entry of the decree, the FCC was investigating possible violations of Section 214 of the Federal Communications Act. Specifically, the FCC sought to determine whether Knology violated the Commission’s rules by failing to obtain FCC approval prior to transferring control of another carrier’s Section 214 Authorization. The decree terminated the FCC’s investigation and imposed affirmative obligations on Knology.
