STATEMENT: Mobile Future Cheers One Touch Make Ready Vote, Urges Continued Infrastructure Reform

August 2, 2018

WASHINGTON, DC In response to the FCC’s vote to adopt a “one touch make ready” policy for pole attachments, the following statement should be attributed to Margaret McCarthy, Executive Director of Mobile Future:

“Expanding the reach of next generation networks requires speeding up processes that can hinder rolling out infrastructure. Today the FCC addressed a key barrier to network deployment by adopting a “one touch make ready” policy that will streamline pole attachments, a critical input that can bring down costs and accelerate build out. Mobile Future thanks the Commission for its focus on infrastructure and urges further reforms to help connect every American to our 5G future.”
