Federal 5G rules won't impact Door County broadband

The Door County Economic Development Corporation says FCC rules designed to boost the growth of 5G wireless networks won't impact efforts to improve broadband internet in the county.  Among the FCC rules are limits on what providers pay in application fees and annual right-of-way access fees.  Some communities claim those fees are well below the costs they incur for approvals and field inspections for 5G cells.  Jim Schuessler, Executive Director of DCEDC, says that 5G's designs will not likely affect efforts to expand broadband internet in Door County.

 

 

 

The DCEDC is working with county leaders currently to change rules governing uses of existing communications towers to make it easier to offer broadband capabilities.
