Recommendations to Further Improve Government Permitting Processes to Expedite the Deployment of Fiber Broadband to All Americans

There are numerous federal, state, and local agencies that play a role in overseeing access to public rights-of-way and infrastructure for fiber broadband projects. While these agencies have rules and processes in place today, FBA urges government agencies, providers, and other stakeholders to work together to evaluate these rules and processes and make reasonable additions and modifications. To assist in that effort, FBA recommends permitting policies, processes, and standards that governments should adopt to facilitate more expeditious access to fiber broadband infrastructure.
