FCC Extends Construction Deadlines

The FCC has granted in part a request by EWA to delay the requirement that site-based and mobile-only wireless systems complete construction of facilities in response to the disruption of work caused by the coronavirus pandemic. In an Order released April 15, the FCC has provided certain site-based and mobile-only wireless licensees with construction deadlines from March 15, 2020, through and including May 15, 2020, an additional 60 days to meet their existing deadlines. While the FCC did not extend construction deadlines until August 31, as EWA requested, the Commission noted that it “may consider further extensions if warranted.”
