Why You Should Dial In

On November 18, 2009, the FCC unanimously adopted a Declaratory Ruling on CTIA's "Shot Clock Petition," in which the Commission set important policy and legal measures designed to help speed the deployment of wireless networks. Granting CTIA's request, the Commission has established deadlines for state and local zoning authorities to act on applications for siting of wireless communications facilities, and has declared that local authorities may not deny a siting application based on coverage in the area by another provider.

In this one-hour TeleBriefing, our distinguished panel of experts representing both industry and local government perspectives will address the implications of this important ruling, including new compliance requirements. Dial in to hear about its considerable effects on the telecommunications industry and on local governments.
