May 5, 2014 / Alexandria, VA – Jonathan Adelstein, President & CEO of PCIA – The Wireless Infrastructure Association, issued the following statement regarding the U.S. Supreme Court’s granting of the petition for certiorari in T-Mobile South v. Roswell, GA, case 13-975, on appeal from the 11th Circuit:

“PCIA – The Wireless Infrastructure Association commends this morning’s decision by the U.S. Supreme Court to address a circuit split that has created ongoing and undue delay and expense in the roll-out and upgrade of wireless broadband facilities. Our industry stands ready to meet consumers’ skyrocketing demands and expectations for reliable mobile service, but too often we are faced with local requirements contrary to federal law that frustrate our ability to get critical wireless technologies deployed. PCIA fully supports its member company, T-Mobile, in this case and looks forward to a final resolution on this matter.”
