The article reports that the antenna-siting shot clock proposed by the mobile phone industry has failed to gain support from citizens and cities in the U.S. Cellular Telecommunications and Internet Association (CTIA) has been urging the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to set deadlines to act on applications for collocation and siting of new wireless facilities. However, opponents claim that the petition should be dismissed because the CTIA did not serve the document on local governments.
