TIA Applauds Adoption of Wireless Broadband Deployment Declaratory Ruling

Arlington, VA (August 2, 2018) –– The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA), the leading association representing the manufacturers and suppliers of high-tech communications networks, today issued a statement after the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) adopted a Declaratory Ruling to accelerate wireless broadband deployment.

“The Telecommunications Industry Association appreciates today’s action by the Commission to prohibit state & local moratoria on broadband infrastructure deployment,” said TIA’s Senior Vice President of Government Affairs Cinnamon Rogers. “5G networks will bring faster and more reliable services and new applications to the American public, and those networks will depend upon greater densification of broadband infrastructure including small cell deployments. Many states and localities are already embracing the infrastructure deployment that will make these networks possible, and today’s action by the Commission will help ensure that all Americans can similarly benefit.”
