Utility Pole Attachment and Right-of-Way Regulation
As wireless data usage continues to escalate, finding new and innovative ways to deploy network the necessary infrastructure to keep up with demand becomes a necessity. One way to address the capacity crunch is through the utilization of existing infrastructure including utility poles. The FCC has taken significant action to facilitate the use of this infrastructure, include ensuring pole top access, regulated rates, and reasonable make-ready timelines. PCIA continues to work at all levels to ensure that wireless providers have access to these existing resources.
