Cities keeping a watch on 'small cell' towers bill
Officials with CNX, a company that designs broadband master plans for municipalities across the nation, say it is an effort by the wireless industry to strip communities of local control over where and how small cell transmitters are located. Gina Hatchett, a research analyst for CNX, said last week Tennessee is not alone in facing such legislation. Currently, similar bills are pending in the legislatures of 14 states. A small cell bill has also passed both houses of the General Assembly in Illinois and has been sent to the governor’s desk for his signature.
