The 5G future is coming. Stream movies to your device faster. Have more control over your home, even when you are not there. Stay connected with your friends and family. Live in a smarter city.
With better and faster mobile internet, almost anything is possible. This future will be made possible by 5G technology — the next generation of ultra-fast wireless technology that we expect will deliver speeds 10 to 100 times faster than today’s connections.
AT&T is aggressively pursuing our 5G evolution plans, and to make that happen, we need to enhance the wireless network in Minnesota. Deploying small cell technology is crucial to our network enhancement plans.
Proposed legislation currently before the Minnesota Legislature would make installing small cells easier. Small cells help enable faster wireless internet speeds, provide more and targeted network capacity and will lay the foundation for 5G technology.
A recent editorial in the Duluth News Tribune highlights the proposed small cell legislation as a bill that “stands to benefit all of Minnesota.” The editorial notes that Minnesota should streamline the process for small cell deployment if it wants to keep pace with technology. You can read the full editorial here.
The paper is right. If Minnesota wants to keep pace with technology and compete with other states for private wireless investment, it should make sure the state is a place that attracts investment. It can start by enacting streamlined rules for deploying small cell technology.
We want to make sure that 5G future doesn’t pass Minnesota by.
