New Application Process Will Grow Telecom Technology in Wilmington

Cell phone antenna

Always looking for the newest and fastest tech on the market? Wilmington has got you covered, and if not now, soon. This is all thanks to a new portal that will allow companies that offer wireless telecommunications to apply to use updated 4g and 5g technologies within the city.

 

“Wilmington’s goal is to become a Smart City. This means having more technology and data available to improve government efficiency and services, as well as to ensure that businesses and citizens have the latest and most advanced technology available to them. Our City’s rights-of-way are very valuable to us. Companies will now be able to install infrastructure on poles owned by the City, State or Delmarva Power to support additional and much-needed 4G and 5G technology.” said Mayor Mike Purzycki.

 

Due to new laws put into place, it has become easier and fair to apply for permits that will allow small wireless cell phone systems to be installed throughout the city.

Are these different than traditional cell towers?

Actually, yes they are! These are completely different from your traditional model of cell phone technology. We are used to what are called macrocells—tall cell towers along highways and on city rooftops. Small cells are smaller, lower-power cell sites that are found every few blocks. Small cell installation consists of radio equipment and antennas placed on structures such as streetlights, the sides of buildings or utility poles. Placing lots of equipment close by is vital for small cells because they can transmit data using mid- and high-band spectrum which cannot travel as far. However, these mid- and high-band frequencies help bolster 5G network capacity due to their ability to send larger quantities of data at higher speeds.
