Tell Boston Metro Area Municipal Leaders to Fast Track 5G Wireless NOW
Right now, municipal officials across the Boston metro area are making decisions that will shape the future of ultra-fast 5G wireless service for our community. 5G is already set to come to Boston and Providence this year, but slow municipal approvals are causing delays for the rest of the Boston metro area. Don't let your community get left behind. If you want 5G here, your voice right now is critical.
What would 5G look like? Lightning-fast mobile connectivity — eventually up to 20 times faster than 4G. And staggering network capacity — imagine streaming crystal clear video of the Sox's game as you are riding the T home. 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.
But to make 5G a reality, and to bring this cutting-edge technology to the entire Boston metro area, our municipal leaders need to know there's widespread public support. Wireless providers are ready to build the 5G network the Boston metro area needs, but to begin building as quickly as possible, local leaders need to remove any barriers to entry that could derail the plan.
Tell local municipal officials to fast-track the 5G rollout now and open up new ways for our community to live, learn, work, and play.

Dear Municipal Leader,
As a local community member, I'm writing to urge you to fast track the 5G network for Boston's metro area. The benefits to people who live and work here, 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 your chance not only to deliver for your constituents, but to demonstrate thought leadership and be part of transforming our region into a national 5G leader. Please do whatever you can to help accelerate the 5G rollout for the Boston metro area.
