Due to the 1996 Telecommunications Act, which removed the public’s right to oppose cell towers on the grounds of health or environmental concerns about radiation exposures, much creativity is needed to find “workarounds” to slow or stop the infiltration of unwanted towers and small cells in our communities.
Measures to Slow or Stop Wireless Infrastructure will serve as an ongoing repository of information and resources of what communities can do to oppose wireless infrastructure as 5G is slated to bring a ton of new cell towers to our neighborhoods. — FROM http://whatis5g.info/index.php/things-you-can-do-to-oppose-5g-cells-in-your-community/
FCC PUBLIC NOTICE
COMMENT SOUGHT ON STREAMLINING DEPLOYMENT OF SMALL CELL INFRASTRUCTURE BY IMPROVING WIRELESS FACILITIES SITING POLICIES;
Comment Date: February 6, 2017
Reply Comment Date: March 8, 2017
The Wireless Telecommunications Bureau (WTB) invites public input on potential Commission actions to help expedite the deployment next generation wireless infrastructure by providing guidance on how federal law applies to local government review of wireless facility siting applications and local requirements for gaining access to rights of way. This Public Notice seeks comment on ways in which the Commission could promote wireless infrastructure deployment by issuing a declaratory ruling, including but not limited to those suggested in a Petition for Declaratory Ruling filed by Mobilitie, LLC, on November 15, 2016.
To satisfy consumers’ rapidly growing demand for wireless broadband and other services, wireless companies are actively expanding the network capacity needed to maintain and improve the quality of existing services and to support the introduction of new technologies and services. In particular, many wireless providers are deploying small cells and distributed antenna systems (DAS) to meet localized needs for coverage and increased capacity in outdoor and indoor environments.2 Although the facilities used in these networks are smaller and less obtrusive than traditional cell towers and antennas, they must be deployed more densely – i.e., in many more locations – to function effectively. As a result, local land-use authorities in many areas are facing substantial increases in the volume of siting applications for deployment of these facilities.3 This trend in infrastructure deployment is expected to continue, and even accelerate, as wireless providers begin rolling out 5G services.
