Elected officials in Denver have laid the groundwork for bringing 5G to Denver, and 5G has launched in some areas of the city, but a series of reviews and unfounded claims are threatening years of delays for the rest of the rollout. If you want broader 5G availability here in Denver, your voice right now is critical.
What does 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 sold-out venues. 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 continue to keep Denver a national leader in technology innovation, our elected leaders need to know there's widespread public support. Wireless providers have submitted plans to build the 5G network Denver needs, but, as mentioned above, recent unfounded claims have raised questions about deployment that could lead to years of delays without the continued support from the community, including your elected officials.
Tell Denver 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 thank you and other Denver city leaders for your leadership in helping to fast track the 5G network Denver needs.
Your efforts to lead the way for 5G have not gone unnoticed. As a member of the community who will be directly affected by 5G, I strongly support facilitating 5G deployment in Denver as quickly as possible. After all, the benefits to people who live and work in Denver, including public safety, local businesses, and the community at large, are too great to let delays get in the way. These benefits include: - 5G supercharging local job growth
— With the potential to attract new businesses, it's estimated 5G will grow Denver's GDP by $1.073 billion. - 5G improving 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 lowering 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. Additionally, innovations powered by 5G have already helped doctors better visualize procedures and treatment, and could be critical to future health care innovations.
5G will play a major role in transforming our community in many ways and continue to position our city as a national leader when it comes to innovative technology. Please continue to do whatever you can to help accelerate the 5G rollout for Denver.
