Digital Liberty Statement on FCC 5G Order

By | September 07, 2018

This week, FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr announced the Wireless Infrastructure Order, which would pave the way for 5G deployment.

The following statement can be attributed to Katie McAuliffe, Executive Director of Digital Liberty:

“5G will revolutionize our lives whether it’s through telemedicine, IoT or automated vehicles, the opportunities are endless, and the FCC’s draft order clarifies a basic framework for localities to follow that will accelerate the deployment of 5G infrastructure.  

It sets guidance on reasonable cost recoupment fees, accounts for aesthetic review, and sets a timeline for approval process, all of which have been guided by and are in line with preexisting legislation at the state level.

We look forward to working with the Commission on this Order.”
