Supes Say Yes to Boxes

New, 8 comments

The supervisors fell victim to AT&T's bluster... So said Milo Hanke of SF Beautiful, which led the fight against AT&T's exemption from an EIR to install hundreds of boxes on sidewalks to provide U-Verse service. Supes approved the exemption yesterday by one vote after AT&T agreed to roll out the program with a reduced number of boxes, plus other concessions. Each installation still has to get a permit, so you'll probably get an opportunity to throw a dreaded Request for Discretionary Review at them if/when they get to your block. Mirkarimi, Chiu, Kim, Mar and Avalos voted to deny the exemption. Wonder how long before Comcast drops their rates. [SF Appeal, and previously at Curbed SF]
