Last month we reported on the Commission’s resolution, at long last, of a number of issues relating to broadband-over-power-line technology that had been pending since a 2008 decision by the D.C. Circuit.  The FCC’s Second Report and Order has now made it into the Federal Register.  As a result, the revised rules are set to become effective on December 21.  Feel free to mark your calendar, but you should probably mark it only in pencil – as we noted in last month’s post, it appears that the amateur radio association ARRL may file for reconsideration.  (The deadline for recon petitions is also December 21; if ARRL – or anyone else, for that matter – chooses instead to take the revised rules to court, they have until January 20, 2012.)
