SouthernLINC Lobbies FCC on Opt-Out Plans

October 18, 2016–SouthernLINC Wireless believes that the FCC’s review process for states seeking to opt out of having the First Responder Network Authority’s (FirstNet) partner build radio access networks (RANs) in states shouldn’t “exclude state opt-out plans that include both a radio access network and a core network,” according to an ex parte filing today in PS docket 16-269 reporting on meetings with FCC officials. “We also urged the Commission to adopt a rapid timeline for review, but provide opt-out states an opportunity to cure any defects in their initial proposals. An opportunity to cure is consistent with traditional notions of due process as well as Commission procedure,” the filing said.
