  • Senate Commerce Committee Chairman Thune last week introduced the STREAMLINE Small Cell Deployment Act (S.3157) consistent with state legislation enacted in 20 states which would make it faster and less expensive for communications companies to access state and local government rights of way and poles to install small cell antennas. Also last week, ranking Democratic FCC Commissioner Rosenworcel released “model” municipal small cell wireless agreements executed by the City of San Jose, California, containing numerous municipal-friendly provisions, including an annual attachment rate of $1500 per site, in an apparent effort to better guide municipalities.
