§ 76.805 Access to molding.
(a) An MVPD shall be permitted to install one or more home run wires
within the existing molding of an MDU where the MDU owner finds that
there is sufficient space to permit the installation of the additional
wiring without interfering with the ability of an existing MVPD to
provide service, and gives its affirmative consent to such
installation. This paragraph shall not apply where the incumbent
provider has an exclusive contractual right to occupy the molding.
(b) If an MDU owner finds that there is insufficient space in existing
molding to permit the installation of the new wiring without
interfering with the ability of an existing MVPD to provide service,
but gives its affirmative consent to the installation of larger molding
and additional wiring, the MDU owner (with or without the assistance of
the incumbent and/or the alternative provider) shall be permitted to
remove the existing molding, return such molding to the incumbent, if
appropriate, and install additional wiring and larger molding in order
to contain the additional wiring. This paragraph shall not apply where
the incumbent provider possesses a contractual right to maintain its
molding on the premises without alteration by the MDU owner.
(c) The alternative provider shall be required to pay any and all
installation costs associated with the implementation of paragraphs (a)
or (b) of this section, including the costs of restoring the MDU
owner's property to its original condition, and the costs of repairing
any damage to the incumbent provider's wiring or other property.
