The Federal Communications Commission says new rules will cut red

The Federal Communications Commission voted Wednesday to limit how
much local governments can charge wireless companies to attach small
radios to utility poles when deploying next-generation 5G service.

The three Republicans on the FCC said the plan will streamline the
process for installing 5G gear and save wireless providers an
estimated $2 billion, which can be used to build networks in rural
parts of the country.
