Section 606 of the MOBILE NOW Act contains several provisions intended to facilitate the deployment of communications facility installations on federal property. Section 606(c), in particular, directs the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) to coordinate with the Department of the Interior (DOI), the Department of Agriculture (USDA), the Department of Defense (DOD), the Department of Transportation (DOT), the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), and the General Services Administration (GSA) to develop recommendations for streamlining processes for considering applications to locate broadband facilities on federal property within two years from the date of enactment (March 23, 2020). The MOBILE NOW Act further directs NTIA, within two years of developing these recommendations to streamline applications processes, to report to Congress on the status of their implementation and any process improvements resulting from such recommendations.
