AT&T Statement on FCC Action to Accelerate Deployment of 5G Wireless Infrastructure

The following may be attributed to Joan Marsh, AT&T Executive Vice President of Regulatory & State External Affairs:

“Today, the FCC clarified Section 6409 of the Spectrum Act of 2012 to help speed up the deployment of 5G wireless infrastructure to American consumers and businesses. The COVID-19 health crisis has reinforced the need for all Americans to have access to next-generation broadband technologies and services no matter where they live. Commissioner Carr has been a tremendous leader in this effort, and we thank him for providing guidance and support for streamlining state and local approval processes for existing structures to the benefit of communities throughout the United States.”
