The Federal Communications Commission today issued a Notice of Proposed Rule making (NPRM) that seeks comment on policies regarding wireless infrastructure.
Specifically, the FCC wants to streamline the
environmental and historic preservation review process for putting in
new small cells and distributed antenna sites; remove barriers that
prevent temporary equipment from being installed; and clarify the
Commission's time period state and
local governments use to review applications for cell towers.
The FCC wants to make it
easier for wireless companies to install the equipment needed to operate
today's wireless broadband networks.
