Bellevue Chamber leads effort to pave the way for 5G mobile

The City of Bellevue acted Tuesday to amend City Code and adopt a small cell wireless facilities Master License Agreement template. This will streamline the process to add 5G wireless infrastructure in Bellevue. This action was made possible through the collaborative efforts of the Bellevue Chamber of Commerce, several wireless service and infrastructure providers, and the City of Bellevue. Crown Castle applauded the city’s actions, saying, "Thanks to the Bellevue Chamber and the Bellevue City Council's leadership, residents living in and around the City will enjoy faster, more reliable wireless services, while new technologies will create efficiencies and spur economic development. Cities across the US can learn from Bellevue's example by working with the wireless industry to pass amenable agreements and codes to bring improved wireless infrastructure to their communities."
