WIA Statement on FCC’s Wireless Infrastructure Streamlining Report and Order

The Wireless Infrastructure Association (WIA) issued the following statement from Jonathan Adelstein, President and CEO of WIA, regarding the Federal Communications Commission’s vote today in favor of the “Wireless Infrastructure Streamlining Report and Order”

“We appreciate the FCC’s effort to remove regulatory barriers  to the deployment of wireless infrastructure. The FCC’s action today is designed to help our country realize the benefits of 5G. After many years of work, we are pleased the FCC has taken significant steps to modernize the tribal consultation notification system so that all parties benefit from clearer review processes, timelines, and associated fees, while protecting culturally and historically significant heritage sites. WIA looks forward to reviewing the details of the Order and working with the FCC as the agency continues to identify ways to streamline broadband deployment.”
