Georgia Senate Study Committee: 5G Recommendations for 2019



A state Senate study committee is recommending that Georgia pursue the following proposals to promote 5G wireless technology during the upcoming legislative session:


  • Promote 5G wireless internet service through uniform statewide fees and policies.

  • Compensate local governments for their oversight of companies use of public rights of way.

  • Review fees to use public rights of way and ensure they’re based on actual costs incurred by governments.

  • Encourage pole owners to negotiate with telecommunication and cable companies to allow placement of 5G technology on their poles.

  • Require county and city governments to charge lower fees than the Georgia Department of Transportation for use of local rights of way.
