FCC 5G Order on Small Cell Towers and Zoning

Learn about the new FCC rules to speed 5G cell deployment that significantly affect small cell towers, cell towers on municipal property, and cell tower zoning.

Learn about the new FCC rules to speed 5G cell deployment that significantly affect small cell towers, cell towers on municipal property, and cell tower zoning. This topic covers recent FCC rulings which significantly affect cell tower leasing and permitting by municipalities, especially for small cell towers in the rights of way, shot clocks and fees to act on cell zoning requests. The rulings cover all cell sites nationwide (not just 5G) by preempting state and local laws and practices which the FCC views as hindering this deployment. As a result of this information, you will understand these new FCC rulings, their background and impact, options for municipalities on how to respond, as well as the bases for legal challenges to these rulings.
