Bright Fiber sale suspended until November, utilities commission says

The state’s Public Utilities Commission has suspended the process of selling the Bright Fiber high-speed internet project to address issues and concerns raised by the public, a suspension scheduled to last until November, a commission spokesman said.

The suspension of an "advice letter," which details the sale of Bright Fiber to Race Communications, occurred Wednesday — the same day a public comment period about the proposed transaction ended. Commission staff now will review issues and concerns raised in various letters it received.

"The Advice Letter suspension gives our staff time to review the Advice Letter and make a determination on whether the transaction meets the requirements for ministerial review," said Christopher Chow, public information officer with the commission, in an email.
