Effective January 2019, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) implemented new federal regulations/laws in an effort to streamline wireless expansion. These new laws, combined with the 1996 Federal Telecommunications Act, other existing FCC laws, and case law, leave cities with little control over wireless facilities. See the timeline below.

You may reach the FCC by calling 888-CALL-FCC, Option #4 to ask to speak to an agent, or you can go online at consumercomplaints.fcc.gov.
