On Friday, January 25, 2013, the FCC Chairman announced several “new and forthcoming” measures under the Commission’s existing Broadband Acceleration Initiative that seeks to speed broadband buildout by lifting barriers to accessing utility poles, rights-of-way, and other last-mile infrastructure. According to the Commission, the additional measures will include: actions to further streamline DAS and small cell deployment; measures to review and potentially revise the shot clock rules; and a process to develop model facility siting rules for localities. Each of these forthcoming measures promises potentially major changes to existing facility-siting processes.
