O’Rielly Criticizes Pace of Change at Commission

In a statement on FCC reforms regarding outdated cellular rules for mobile broadband, Commissioner O’Rielly noted that his only critique of the order came from it having been filed in 2012. He wrote, “The Commission must ensure that its rules are current, technologically neutral and promote flexible use. When they are not, it can’t take five years to update them.”

He noted proceedings that he would like to conclude speedily, including two of interest to EWA. These are the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking to establish uniform license renewal and other policies for certain wireless radio services and the proceeding to eliminate the CMRS presumption in Part 20 of the Commission rules.
