​NRECA, along with the Edison Electric Institute (EEI), the Utilities Technology Council (UTC), and GridWise Alliance, filed reply comments with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) on improving wireless network resiliency through encouraging coordination with power companies.  The comments encourage the FCC to focus on regular engagement with state and local authorities and other stakeholders given the local nature of disaster events while also engaging with other federal stakeholders to inform policies and improve service restoration and cross-sector coordination. The comments also urge the FCC to provide electric companies with greater representation on the Broadband Deployment Advisory Committee (BDAC) as it formulates recommendations on FCC policy.  FULL FILING
