ARLINGTON, Va. – Alabama has become the 31st state to pass small cell legislation.
“WIA commends Alabama for becoming the 31st state to pass small cell legislation as the nation races to 5G. The legislation modernizes and streamlines Alabama’s rules for small cell deployment and lays the groundwork needed for jobs, economic growth, public safety, telemedicine, and distance learning across the state,” said WIA President and CEO Jonathan Adelstein. “WIA supports this balanced, bipartisan bill and urges Gov. Ivey to expeditiously sign the measure into law.”
The Wireless Infrastructure Association (WIA) represents the businesses that build, own, and operate the nation’s wireless infrastructure. On the federal, state, and local levels, WIA advocates for the widespread, responsible deployment of wireless infrastructure to enable mobile broadband access for communities everywhere.
