CommLaw Group Attorney Ron Quirk was quoted in a recent Law360 article: “New FCC Looks Poised to Overrule Local Barriers to 5G”. This article discusses the importance of small cell and distributed antenna system (“DAS”) densification to the deployment of wireless broadband, and the GOP-led FCC’s willingness to preempt municipalities’ barriers to construction of the necessary 5G infrastructure.
“[FCC Chairman] Pai seems interested in moving forward quickly, Quirk said, and a Republican-led Congress likely won’t stand in his way, despite the GOP’s long-touted reluctance to intervene in state and local matters. Legislation such as the bipartisan Mobile Now Act, which would clear the way for siting on federal lands, is moving forward, he said.”
