Laws governing FTTx ?

I would be interested in hearing from those providing fiber to homes or businesses, and the laws surrounding that.

Specifically, if the builder of a new home or homes allows fiber installation (that is, fiber installed before the home is built and which is wired into the basement wall beside the telco's network panel) by a non-ILEC/non-CLEC, is a permit other than the usual construction permit necessary?

(Certainly an easement will need to be drawn up for the fiber as it crosses property lines; but I am more worried about the ILEC complaining or being able to erect legal barriers).
