AT&T news: AT&T sues Pittsburgh over small cell fees, permit delays

From FierceWireless:

AT&T is suing the city of Pittsburgh, alleging it asked for excessive small cell fees and failed to process permit applications within the FCC’s 90-day shot clock window.

The complaint filed Tuesday in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania says the city planned to charge the wireless carrier $850 in annual fees for new small cell installations – a figure AT&T asserts exceeds the FCC limit for a reasonable recurring fee “by nearly 215%, in violation of federal law.”

In 2018 the FCC adopted a small cell order (PDF) aimed at making it easier to deploy infrastructure for 5G. It included limiting the amount local authorities could charge and imposed faster permitting timelines as carriers faced delays and sometimes pushback from state and local governments.
