FCC Votes To Cap 5G Deployment Fees

The FCC on Wednesday in a 3-1 party-line vote approved a new rule that would limit what fees local authorities can charge wireless providers as the industry builds out its next-generation networks, known as 5G.


Ancillary, Supplementary Service Fees Due

The FCC issued a Public Notice reminding all TV broadcasters (full-power, LPTV, translator and Class A stations, both commercial and noncommercial, if they have digital operations) that they must, by Dec. 1, file a report as to whether or not they provide ancillary and supplementary services through their broadcast spectrum. If they do provide such services, they must pay a fee of 5% of gross revenues received by the TV station for such services.
