Rebecca Ruscito, Counsel, NY Conference of Mayors, will deliver a live webinar on Thursday, May 14, 10:30 am—Noon on Small Wireless Facilities and 5G in New York State.
Originally scheduled for the Tug Hill Local Government Conference in March, Rebecca will describe the next generation of mobile networks, which builds on today’s 4G wireless broadband infrastructure. This next generation of wireless service uses higher-frequency wavelengths transmitted through a network of “small cell” devices, roughly the size of a backpack, scattered throughout communities. As stewards of substantial amounts of public rights-of-way, municipalities are concerned with recent federal actions that undermine local governments’ ability to serve as trustees of public property, safety and well-being.
This session will discuss this issue and next steps in the 5G infrastructure build-out. There will be time for questions and answers at the end of the webinar.
