OCT works strategically with other City bureaus, local governments and orgainzations to advocate at the State Legislature, Public Utility Commission (PUC), Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the U.S. Congress for the City's authority to levy taxes and fees, obatin fair compensation for private use of the public rights of way, and preserve various public interest obligations.  Examples of public interest issues include compensation (both for use of the rights of way and taxing authority), consumer protection and customer service, Public, Education and Governmental (PEG) access, net neutrality and ubiquitious, affordable broadband access.
