US cities react in fury to FCC's $2bn break for 5G telcos: We'll be picking up the tab, say officials


Re: Just proves...

I think it's a stretch to call cell towers "national infrastructure," since any given tower inherently just serves the local population. The networks have also always been privately owned, and don't even all interoperate with each other -- the FCC regulates the frequency bands in use but not the communications protocols transmitted over them.
