Many of you have heard people in the wireless and telecommunications industry refer to the FCC. The FCC stands for the Federal Communications Commission. The FCC is a US government entity responsible for regulating communications industries. As an agency of the United States, the FCC is charged with regulating essentially all communications in or originating in the United States. This means that the FCC is responsible for administering the television and radio airwaves, satellite and cable transmissions, and telegrah communications. The FCC was created as a direct successor to the Federal Radio Commission, the federal body in charge of radio communications within the United States. With the advent of television, it was apparent that a body with a broader mission would be necessary, and it made sense to group a number of similar duties together under one umbrella. The Congress created the FCC with the Communications Act of 1934.

The WTB makes sure that cellular providers wireless service providers are following guidelines and implementing solutions that will not disrupt pre-existing wireless communication.
