Your Right to Reliable Internet Access
At LV.Net, we understand the importance of staying connected in today's digital world. We also recognize that Homeowners Associations (HOAs) can sometimes create barriers to installing the necessary equipment for a high-quality internet connection. However, the new Over-the-Air Reception Devices (OTARD) rules bring a significant change to this dynamic.
What are the OTARD Rules?
The OTARD rules, enforced by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), are regulations designed to protect your right to receive broadband, wireless data services and video programming. These rules prohibit restrictions that delay or prevent installation, maintenance, or use of antennas used to receive these services.
Key Points of the OTARD Rules for Homeowners:
- Installation Freedom: Homeowners have the right to install antennas on their property, including rooftops, balconies, or patios.
- HOA Limitations: HOAs cannot unreasonably delay or prevent installation, nor can they impose unreasonable limitations on the owner's ability to receive these services.
- Aesthetic Concerns: While HOAs can enforce some aesthetic requirements, they cannot impose restrictions purely based on how the equipment looks if it impedes signal reception.
- No Fines for Compliance: Homeowners complying with these rules cannot be fined or penalized by HOAs for installing necessary equipment.
