115 Can You Hear Me Now? The Race to Provide America with Universal, High=Speed Wireless Coverage

As the United States becomes increasingly dependent on universal, high-speed wireless services, the limited availability of spectrum is producing tension. The interests of consumers, telecommunications companies, state and local authorities, and businesses, as well as national security, are all at stake. Yet legal uncertainty stemming from a split among federal circuit courts hampers the development of solutions. The courts diverge on the interpretation of a key provision of the Telecommunications Act (TCA), 47 U.S.C. § 332(c)(7)(B), that regulates wireless service providers’ ability to erect new towers. There is great need for a national standard so that mobile providers have a uniform means to accommodate the growing demand. Without such a standard, courts are applying the TCA incongruently, affecting consumers and providers alike and ultimately impacting the critical infrastructure that so many Americans rely upon for business, security, and daily convenience. The standard should be set by the Federal Communications Commission or by Congress, but not confronted unevenly by courts on a case-by-case basis.
