TIA Says FCC’s Wireless Order Key to Deploying 5G

Arlington, VA (September 26, 2018) – The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA), the leading association representing the manufacturers and suppliers of high-tech communications networks, today applauded FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr and the FCC for taking action to streamline the deployment of wireless communications infrastructure across the country.

“The FCC’s action today addresses key obstacles to deploying 5G across the country by reducing unnecessary government red tape,” said TIA’s Senior Vice President for Government Affairs Cinnamon Rogers. “By adopting this important wireless infrastructure order, the Commission is taking commonsense steps to fulfill its longstanding mission to ensure that consumers and businesses have access to high-speed broadband across America’s major cities, suburban and rural communities. Next-generation wireless will serve to expand the reach of internet services that are improving people’s lives through access to education, healthcare and more. TIA applauds the FCC’s leadership and its continued work to secure America’s leadership in the global race to 5G.”

At 2:00PM today, TIA will be hosting a livestream panel discussion on today’s FCC vote, featuring panelists from Samsung and Nokia. More information is available here: https://bit.ly/2OaN2Rj.
