Washington, DC, September 26, 2018 – Fred Campbell, director of Tech Knowledge, issued the following statement regarding the wireless infrastructure order adopted today by the Federal Communications Commission:
“Today’s FCC order will accelerate the deployment of 5G wireless infrastructure in suburban and rural areas that would otherwise be left behind. Congress’ national broadband goals are aimed at providing all Americans with access to broadband networks, not just those who live in the largest cities. The wireless infrastructure order is an important step toward fulfilling that goal and closing the digital divide.”
