Welcome to OCTA

In 1966 a group of cable pioneers banded together, forming the OCTA to help represent them before the Ohio General Assembly. Over the past four decades, the OCTA has built a strong record of success in the legislative and regulatory arena.

Today, our members look to the Ohio Cable Telecommunications Association with confidence in its ability to represent the industry before the Ohio legislature, PUCO, Congress, and the Courts. Through the work of the OCTA and the support of our members, we have been able to safeguard our industry's interests through the legislative process, including enactment of strong signal theft laws, legislation that places tough but necessary restrictions on government-run cable companies, and fair and reasonable right-of-way legislation.
