Tell Tampa City Leaders: Fast Track 5G Wireless NOW
Right now, elected officials in Tampa are making decisions that will shape the future of ultra-fast 5G wireless service for our community. If you want cutting-edge 5G here in Tampa, 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 Channelside or Historic Ybor. 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 Tampa a national "Smart City" leader, our elected leaders need to know there's widespread public support. Plans by wireless providers to build the 5G network Tampa needs have already been approved by lawmakers, but a complex matrix of municipal reviews could potentially lead to years of delays. In order for Tampa to be ready for Super Bowl LV in 2021, we need to begin building as quickly as possible.
Tell Tampa officials to fast-track the 5G rollout now and open up new ways for our community to live, learn, work, and play.

As a local community member, I'm writing to urge you to fast track the installation of small cells for Tampa's 5G network. The benefits to people who live and work in Tampa, 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 Tampa.
