EXPANDING 5G COVERAGE

The Maryland Tech Council applauds Prince George’s County Executive Angela Alsobrooks and the Prince George’s County Council for moving forward with comprehensive legislation to prepare the County for 5G.  This technology will make Prince George’s County even more competitive in the region by unlocking new innovative technologies, creating new jobs and boosting the economy.

We look forward to continuing to work with the Montgomery County Council to pass similar legislation to ensure that Montgomery County does not fall further behind in preparing for this important technology.
