Republican FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr is in Indianapolis this morning, where he’ll give his take on state and local rules for 5G equipment. The wireless industry has complained about the fees cities charge for installing the equipment and the amount of time it takes to win approval for such projects — and they’ve been pushing the FCC to help them win some relief. Cities, on the other hand, are wary of the federal government telling them what to do in this area. Expect Carr, flanked by Indiana Republican Sen. Todd Young and Rep. Susan Brooks, to outline an item to be voted on at the commission’s Sept. 26 meeting.
