Tell Salt Lake City Leaders: We Need 5G Wireless NOW
Help city leaders make Salt Lake City a 5G city and support the availability of ultra-fast 5G wireless service for our community. If you want to help bring 5G to Salt Lake City it is critical that your voice be heard today.
What would 5G look like for Salt Lake City? Lightning-fast mobile connectivity — eventually up to 20 times faster than 4G. As the recent COVID-19 pandemic highlights, reliable connectivity is essential and depends on having a strong communications infrastructure. 5G can take it to the next level. Imagine students having the ability to "interact" with atoms in and outside of the classroom using VR/AR technology or medical professionals at Intermountain Medical Center leveraging 3-D scans to better treat patients. But 5G isn't just the next "G" in your phone — it's a societal game-changer on par with the advent of electric power a century ago.
And just like a century ago, 5G's greatest breakthroughs have yet to be imagined.
Mobile technology is reshaping the way we live and do business, and 5G is a fundamental platform for its continued innovation. 5G connectivity is expected to completely transform public safety. New augmented and virtual reality systems could help first responders, police officers, firefighters, and even airport workers protect our community, and more broadly, our way of life.
But to make 5G a reality, and make Salt Lake City a national "Smart City" leader, our elected leaders need to know there's widespread public support. Wireless providers have proposed plans to build the 5G network that Salt Lake City needs to grow, but to keep up the momentum, it's important your leaders see letters of support from community members like you.
Tell Salt Lake City officials to fast-track the 5G rollout now and open up new ways for our community to live, learn, work, and play.

Dear [Insert Government Official],
As a local community member, I'm writing to urge you to fast track the 5G network for Salt Lake City.
The benefits to people who live and work in Salt Lake City to local businesses and to the entire community are too great to let municipal delays get in the way:- 5G will supercharge local job growth
— With the potential to attract new businesses, it's estimated 5G will create some 3 million jobs across communities that build 5G and inject $500 billion into the national economy.- 5G will improve city services, transportation and public safety
— First responders could coordinate faster, sharing vital emergency information in real-time. Smart pavement and traffic lights could cut congestion. We may even see safer streets and neighborhoods thanks to better security monitoring and smart lighting.- 5G will lower health care costs while elevating care
— Raising the potential of virtual healthcare to new levels, and making remote care even more effective and accessible to those who need it most.
This is our chance to transform Salt Lake City into a national 5G leader. Please do whatever you can to help accelerate the 5G rollout.
