• On April 20, 2011, Capital Infrastructure LLC d/b/a Connexion Technologies, and Broadstar LLC d/b/a/ Primecast filed separate petitions for reconsideration of an Iowa Utilities Board order finding that the companies provided non-nomadic VoIP service and are therefore public utilities under Iowa law. The order stems from a complaint proceeding in which MCC Telephony of Iowa LLC and MCC Iowa LLC d/b/a Mediacom alleged that Connexion entered into exclusive service contracts with the owners of certain multiple dwelling units and demanded that Mediacom stop providing service to those properties. Connexion argued that because it did not have a direct contractual relationship with the tenants of the properties, it did not treat these tenants as end users and therefore could not be deemed a public utility. The Board, however, ruled that a public utility need not have a direct relationship with a customer to be considered a utility under Iowa law, and ruled that Connexion and Primecast must obtain a certificate of public convenience and necessity (CPCN) to provide their VoIP service within the state. Primecast argued that it provides nomadic VoIP service, and that the FCC has preempted state regulation of this service, and thus the Board lacks authority to require Primecast to obtain a CPCN. Primecast requested that the Board stay its decision while the petitions are pending, and stated that it “stands firm in its position that its nomadic VoIP service is an information service not subject to Board jurisdiction.” Docket No. FCU-2010-0015.
