Short summary (Optional):
County Council members on Tuesday made more changes to a proposal that would help pave the way for 5G service to expand in Montgomery County. The zoning text amendment sets limits on where and how 5G small cell antennas and equipment can be placed in residential areas countywide. The smaller equipment used for 5G networks can be placed closer together. That creates a more robust, faster network, versus 4G towers, which often stretch hundreds of feet into the air and are more spaced out.
