Statement on Permitting Guidance

Today, the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP) released permitting streamlining guidance targeted to historic reviews at the request of the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA).

The following statement can be attributed to Jonathan Spalter, USTelecom President & CEO.

“NTIA made the right call to ask ACHP to streamline permitting for broadband infrastructure projects. It’s crucial to speed up the permitting process and lower barriers to broadband buildout, especially as more federal deployment funding dollars start to flow. Consumers everywhere need more positive actions like this to help ensure high-speed networks can be rolled out to their communities as quickly and efficiently as possible.”
