FRESNO, Calif., Apr 22, 2021 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- The City of Fresno has been a leader in ushering wireless connectivity in the central valley and has opened its doors to the deployment of 5G. The City of Fresno, together with XG Communities created a transparent process in order to push forward the deployment of small cells for all carriers.
"5G is a huge step forward for the City of Fresno," Mayor Jerry Dyer said. "This next generation technology will improve online access for our residents and boost the City's economic development by creating opportunities for businesses currently here, looking to locate here, or even those exploring telecommuting options. As we move ahead with our partners XG Communities and Verizon, I see the continued 5G deployment as another part of my One Fresno vision that will help bring all of Fresno together."
The groundwork has been laid for efficient, city-wide scaled deployment, which utilizes assets in the right of way, fiber and conduit. "We are excited to turn up the new Verizon network and extend the benefits of speed, coverage and new applications to the citizens of Fresno, more than any other time history, connectivity is critical, we must provide access for our citizens," said Bryon Horn, CIO, City of Fresno.
XG Communities is executing the construction of the network to meet the goal of bringing small cells to this area. Monnie McGaffigan, President XG, said, "5G is considered one of the largest civil engineering projects in the world right now and the City of Fresno is capitalizing on the benefits the technology will bring."
The new 5G network is foundational for smart city initiatives, speed and enhanced connectivity. The network is now live in several areas of the community with over 100 small cell sites on air and more to come. The project will ultimately cover the entire City with multiple carriers. Verizon has been the first carrier to aggressively deploy in the City of Fresno.
