(Moab, Utah) – U.S. Congressman John Curtis (UT) conducted a site visit and climbing experience at a communications tower located in Moab, Utah (1503 Sand Flats, Moab, UT). The site visit was held at a Royce Electronics-owned monopole site that is located in the Sand Flats region of Congressman Curtis’s Congressional District and organized by Utah companies VIKOR Teleconstruction, Triple M Enterprises, and NATE (The Communications Infrastructure Contractors Association).
Congressman Curtis represents Utah’s 3rd Congressional District that is home to Silicon Slopes, one of the nation’s fastest growing and thriving tech sectors. Recently, the House Energy & Commerce moved forward a comprehensive package of 26 bills that aim to streamline the deployment of broadband infrastructure.
During the event, management and tower technicians from NATE member companies VIKOR and Triple M Enterprises visited with Congressman Curtis about the work they conduct on a daily basis building, installing and maintaining 5G and 4G communications tower sites/ broadband infrastructure while also shining a spotlight on the myriad of regulatory challenges confronting the industry’s ability to deploy infrastructure on federal and tribal lands. The highlight of the day was providing Congressman Curtis with the unique opportunity to experience a short tower climb under the guidance of safety personnel and tower technicians.
“The wireless industry plays such a critical role in our everyday lives,” said Rep. Curtis. “Understanding how we all stay connected and the equipment needed to make simple communications like text messages or a call to a family member is important in order to help us make further technological advancements and to develop the workforce needed to achieve these advancements. I really enjoyed this unique adventure today.” VIKOR CEO, Craig Snyder added “Utah is filled with some of the most beautiful places on the planet. Unfortunately, they have limited connectivity due to federal regulatory hurdles making it tough to install wireless infrastructure. Bridging the digital divide in wide open spaces of federal and tribal lands is of great importance to those suffering under the challenges of low connectivity. We’re very encouraged by Congressman Curtis’ desire to work at the national level in this regard, especially in places like Utah where so much land is federally owned.”
