FCC Rules & Regulations
In 1996 the FCC created the Over-the-Air Reception Devices Rule (pdf) to prohibit the restriction of home satellite dishes. In addition to satellite dishes, the rule also covers equipment used to receive or transmit fixed wireless internet signals.The equipment we deploy to send and receive fixed wireless internet signals qualify under this rule.
We have found that a number of HOA’s have created their own rules concerning the placement of telecommunications gear in the neighborhood and on their homeowners’ rooftops. Federal regulations supersede any local or community guidelines or covenants.
In essence, even if an HOA decrees that homeowners may not have telecommunications equipment on their homes, Federal law says otherwise.
