So, I own these poles. FERC says I can only load them so much. And there are already a bunch of other people renting space on them.

You come along and instantly want access and want a third party (lowest bidder no less) to decide whether or not you are going to overload my pole?


And then it fails in an ice storm and FERC is all over my ass?

The public does not own the poles. They should be grateful that they are even allowed access.
Pioneer's preference.

Kinda like I built a toll road. Now you want to add lanes to the road I built? And I get no say as to the engineering?

How about we enact one touch make ready and allow third parties to bid on make ready work?

No more unreasonable delays and market based costs for make ready work.

Curious, name an obstacle that needs to be removed.
Not saying there are none.  There are plenty.
Just curious which one could be removed.

He didn't say it was easy or cheap.  More like it can be done, if you fill
out the paperwork, pay your fees, and wait like everybody else.

I have to agree.  If the obstacles need to be taken out of the way, they
should be removed for everyone.  Not just Google because they're special.
(insert talking points about level playing field, government not picking
winners and losers, etc.)  I know, this sounds like complaining that Uber
unfairly competes with taxis, or Airbnb unfairly competes with hotels. Cry
me a river, but it's not so funny if it's your ox getting gored.

  Never ever had a problem with gaining access to poles or ducts from your
friendly neighborhood incumbent, never experienced any delays nor had to pay
an arm and a leg for the pleasure?
