Dear Chairperson Cheh:

MediaFreedom commends the District of Columbia for its patient and thoughtful examination of the issues surrounding the deployment of new wireless infrastructure, such as for 5G broadband services, within the city. MediaFreedom recognizes the important needs of the community to maintain its roads, facilities and other public spaces safely, efficiently and with proper visual aesthetics in mind. That said, as the District manages the shift to 5G, we urge it to adhere to an infrastructure siting process which keeps obstacles to entry low, expeditiously and transparently approves permits, and minimizes non-related fees or other requirements for those building-out the new and necessary infrastructure required by 5G.
