Multiple Central Valley California Cities Enter into Agreements with 5 Bars to Accelerate and Enhance Small Cell Wireless Coverage

IRVINE, Calif. -- 5 Bars Communities, a dba of XG Communities LLC, a premier provider of wireless master plans, asset marketing and engineering services for cities and municipalities across the United States, announced an agreement to market and manage wireless coverage solutions for the City of Merced, the City of Tulare and the City of Ripon.

All these cities are located in the Central Valley, California's single most productive agricultural region. 5 Bars Communities has entered into a multi-year agreement with these Cities to begin marketing their assets for small cell and wireless use.
