Valley reports that the Federal Communications Commission voted to adopt
rules designed to speed up the process of getting new nodes on wireless phone
networks. State and local governments now must rule on site applications from
wireless carriers within 90 days if it’s an addition to an existing site, or
150 days for new sites.
Remember when Ralph De La Vega, AT&T's Wireless CEO, suggested that the carrier might have to figure out some way to effectively better manage the bandwidth of their 3G network?
Well, he's not the only one singing the "iPhone's hogging up the airwaves" blues. Turns out the Chairman of the FCC has that same song stuck in his head, and between the two of these men, iPhone users could be running into some stiff opposition to their unlimited access plans.
