First small cells come to life in Sacramento

SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- XG Communities LLC and the City of Sacramento announced that multiple carriers have received permit approvals to build small cells in downtown Sacramento. Mobilitie began construction immediately and already has sites on air. Sacramento's model invites carriers and connectivity providers to enhance wireless coverage and capacity for the citizens of Sacramento by leveraging city-owned assets.

Sacramento has updated its policies and processes to allow for small cells to quickly obtain city approval. Sacramento's goal to be the nation's first 5G city is close to realization.

"We're honored to be a proving ground and of interest to so many technology and connectivity providers," Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg said. "We believe that our strategy to improve connectivity and competition for our residents is working."

Carriers built test sites in 2017 and intend to construct hundreds of small cells over the coming months. The sites are aesthetically pleasing and are in line with the city's technology priorities.

"We're disrupting how small cells are deployed - making the process faster, streamlined, and predictable," said XG Communities founder and CEO John Clarey. "We think our model working with cities is the future and we've proven that it works here in California."
