Tell New Orleans City Leaders: Fast Track 5G Wireless NOW
Right now, elected officials in New Orleans are making decisions that will shape the future of ultra-fast 5G wireless service for our community. If you want 5G here in New Orleans, 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 sharing crystal clear video from the middle of a sold-out Mercedes-Benz Superdome. 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 make New Orleans a national "Smart City" leader, our elected leaders need to know there's widespread public support. The City Council took a key first step when they unanimously adopted policy guiding the 5G rollout, laying a foundation to bring the world's most advanced cellular technology to you and your neighbors. It was a strong start, and Mayor Cantrell and the City Council deserve credit. But to keep up the momentum, it's important they see letters of support from community members like you.
Tell New Orleans officials to fast-track the 5G rollout now and open up new ways for our community to live, learn, work, and play.
Dear Council Member,
As a resident of the New Orleans metro area, I'm writing to thank you and all of the members of the City Council for your leadership in revising the City Code to open the door for 5G in New Orleans.
Your efforts to lead the way for 5G and all of the benefits that will come along with the new 5G network have not gone unnoticed. As a member of the community that will be directly affected by 5G — not to mention the countless opportunities it will provide to make our city better for decades to come — I strongly support fast-tracking 5G deployment in New Orleans. Your visionary leadership paired with this new technology will enhance the ability of local businesses, emergency responders, public transportation, schools, and the entire community to thrive.
5G will play a major role in transforming our community in many ways and position our city as a regional hub for technology investments. Please continue to do whatever you can to help accelerate the 5G rollout for New Orleans.
