The Federal Communications Commission today issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (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 "shot clock" with respect to the time period state and local governments use to review applications for cell towers. "Increasing certainty in the FCC's processes and removing barriers to infrastructure deployment will spur public and private investment, while expanding wireless coverage and capacity throughout the Nation," said the FCC. The FCC wants to make it easier for wireless companies to install the equipment needed to operate today's wireless broadband networks.
