Federal regulations require that companies must comply with many different rules when importing radio frequency devices. One of these rules is a filing requirement. Complying with this filing requirement can produce a tremendous amount of paperwork. Though, in the summer of 2016, the filing requirement related to the import of devices was temporarily suspended. Recently, the FCC has announced the extension of the Form 740 Import Information Waiver for another six months. For now, this waiver is set to run until June 30th, 2017.
Recently, the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) announced that it was adopting a new set of regulations. The new rules are meant to help facilitate the development of faster 5G networks. In a unanimous vote, the commissioners agreed to pass the plan put forth by Chairman Tom Wheeler. This is an important development for many telecommunications companies. The hopes are that new networks will spring up quickly, as the potential benefits for businesses and consumers could be wide ranging.
