As the next generation of wireless technology, 5G promises advances in speed and capability that users have only dreamed of before. With these new advancements, counties are going to have to adapt and potentially change the way they currently work in order to keep up. FAC created this page as resource for our members to receive updates about the telecommunications industry and the steps FAC is taking to ensure that local governments are apart of the process. 

 

FAC is determined to keep counties informed when it comes to the implementation of the 5G (small cell) network. This work summary shows every meeting FAC has had so far, what was discussed, and what industry experts where present.
