Kung On August 6, 2021, the FCC released a brand new, first-of-its-kind, mobile broadband map, showing mobile 4G LTE voice and broadband coverage across the U.S. from the Nation's largest wireless providers. The map, available here <https://fcc.maps.arcgis.com/apps/webappviewer/index.html?id=6c1b2e73d9d749cdb7bc88a0d1bdd25b>, includes data as of May 15, 2021 and will allow consumers to search by specific address to better understand whether they should be able to make and receive voice calls or use wireless data. https://www.mondaq.com/unitedstates/telecoms-mobile-cable-communications/1100342/fcc39s-new-4g-lte-mobile-broadband-map-are-you-covered?email_access=on -- Bill Horne (Remove QRM from my email address to write to me directly)

A broadcaster in Conne River, Newfoundland has started a petition through Change.org <https://www.change.org/> calling for better service. You do not have to be a resident of Newfoundland and Labrador to sign. The petition says, in part: Over the last few weeks, there have been multiple motor vehicle accidents, some fatal, on the Bay d'Espoir Highway. We've had poor cell phone coverage for a number of years in this area, and that can affect emergency response. Phone service along the highways is vital to help notify first responders in potentially life and death scenarios.

Klein (New York) If you are a telemarketer, you have probably heard plenty of talk about the Telephone Consumer Protection Act ("TCPA"). The TCPA is a consumer protection statute passed in 1991 and designed to protect the public from certain telemarketing tactics. As is often the case, technology has advanced exponentially faster than the TCPA, putting the law in a near constant state of flux. These frequent changes have contributed to the proliferation of TCPA litigation. https://www.mondaq.com/unitedstates/dodd-frank-consumer-protection-act/1099958/successfully-navigating-tcpa-litigation?email_access=on
