FCC Changes Policy on Infrastructure Modifications to Support 5G Adoption
FCC

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has revised policy that governs the approval of wireless infrastructure modifications under the Spectrum Act of 2012. The revision allows infrastructure modifications to remain qualified as long as transmission equipment is not deployed at areas exceeding 30 feet beyond site boundaries, FCC said Tuesday.

The commission executed this revision to support accelerated 5G implementation and facilitate equipment collocation. FCC aligned the revision with the Nationwide Programmatic Agreement for the Collocation of Wireless Antennas, policy that prevents these excavation efforts from requiring federal historic preservation reviews.
