Telecom Access

Companies offering new telecom services say they're having trouble reaching many potential customers. They say landlords limit which firms can put equipment into office buildings and apartments, and that deprives tenants of the new services. Landlords say they need to protect their property and that older buildings have limited space available. Landlords collect fees from companies that install equipment. The FCC will soon decide whether landlords have to allow open access to their buildings. NPR's Larry Abramson reports.
