On December 26, 2018, the Wireless Telecommunications Bureau (“Bureau”) released a Public Notice establishing uniform deadlines for oppositions and replies to opposition to a petition for reconsideration (“Petition”) of the Commission’s September 2018 Wireless Infrastructure Declaratory Ruling and Third Report and Order (“R&O”) (WT Docket No. 17-79; WC Docket 17-84).

The Petition, filed on behalf of the City of New Orleans; Virginia Municipal League; Kentucky League of Cities; Mississippi Municipal League; Pennsylvania Municipal League; Alabama League of Municipalities; Arkansas Municipal League; Nevada League of Cities and Municipalities; Town of Middleburg, Virginia; Jefferson Parish, Louisiana; and the Government Wireless Technology and Communications Association, asks the Commission to reconsider the recurring fee structure, the definition of “effective prohibition,” and undergrounding and minimum spacing issues in the Declaratory Ruling, and the presumptively reasonable periods of time for processing deployment applications in the R&O.

Oppositions are due 15 days after publication of the Notice of Petition for Reconsideration in the Federal Register. The Bureau will release a separate Public Notice announcing publication.

Replies are due 10 days after the time for filing oppositions to Petition for Reconsideration has expired.
