FCC Proposal Will Speed Up High-Speed Broadband Deployment

Washington — The FCC voted today to approve a proposal by Chairman Pai to better enable broadband buildout.  The One Touch Make Ready (OTMR) proposal would reduce costs and cut down on timelines for deploying high-speed networks.  

The Computer & Communications Industry Association, an international tech trade association representing a diverse group of tech companies from leading internet services to internet providers, supports bringing more high speed broadband to more people. The following can be attributed to CCIA President & CEO Ed Black:

“In the global race to 5G, we just got a burst of speed.  These reforms will boost competition by helping network providers buildout more quickly and with fewer costs.  CCIA applauds the Commission for pursuing this policy in a balanced manner and promoting the deployment of high-speed networks.”
