Federal Rules Cap Fees Cities Can Charge Telecommunications Companies
To Use Public Infrastructure

By Rich Kremer

Local officials in Wisconsin say a Federal Communications Commission
order aimed at helping build the next generation of high-speed,
wireless internet is a giveaway to telecommunication companies that
strips government of local control.

The FCC Board of Commissioners approved an order on Sept. 26, aimed at
speeding the development of fifth generation, or 5G, wireless
networks. The new technology promises faster internet data speeds than
existing networks can provide.
