Over the past several years, electric utilities operating within the United States have become interested in diversifying into the commercial telecommunications business by constructing fiber optics systems primarily in the static wire of their transmission systems. This paper will discuss how legal and regulatory obstacles were overcome by American utilities which have entered this market. It will conclude with an assessment of the steps which must be taken by a utility in order to enter the telecommunications market.
