24. Stage 1 - Survey: 45 days. We require a utility to respond within 45 days of receipt of a
complete application to attach facilities on the utility's poles-for both wireline and wireless attachments
either in or above the communications space. This required response is specified in our current 45-day
response rule, which provides that, where a utility denies an attachment request, it must provide a written
explanation of its denial that is specific; include all supporting evidence and information; and explain how
the evidence and information relate to reasons of lack of capacity, safety, reliability, or engineering
standards.77 The 45-day period also accords with the "survey" period in some state models and a proposal
in the record.78 Indeed, the Further Notice stated that "[the 45-day response] rule is functionally identical
to a requirement for a survey and engineering analysis when applied to wired facilities, and is generally
