  • June 1, 2018
  • Last week, FCC Commissioner Michael O’Rielly spoke at the Wireless Infrastructure Association’s Connectivity Expo and specifically discussed making mid-band spectrum available for 5G deployment while hinting at future regulatory reform to remove barriers to network deployment. O’Rielly stated that many state and local jurisdictions are still acting in ways that impede the deployment of wireless infrastructure, referring to some communities as “bad actors.” O’Rielly said the Commission had “tried to be nice” but “now we are going to go the aggressive route, getting bad actor communities out of the way.”
