Tell Oakland County Leaders: Fast Track 5G Wireless NOW!
Right now, elected officials in Oakland County are making decisions that will shape the future of ultra-fast 5G wireless service for our community. If you want 5G in your community, 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 crowded Detroit Zoo. 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 Oakland County a national leader, our elected leaders need to know there's widespread public support. Wireless providers have submitted plans to build the 5G network our county needs, but a complex matrix of municipal reviews and unsustainable cost proposals could potentially lead to years of delays.
Tell Oakland County officials to fast-track the 5G rollout now and open up new ways for our community to live, learn, work, and play.

As an Oakland County resident, I'm writing to urge you to fast track the 5G network for our community. The benefits to people who live and work in our county, 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 health care 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 Oakland County.
