County Council amends bill that could allow 5G cell antennas, rejects further delay

July 15, 2021

The Montgomery County Council on Tuesday made changes to a bill to allow 5G cell service, including where antennas may be built and the height of new poles. The council is deliberating a zoning text amendment that would provide guidelines for the placement of antennas countywide. 5G networks require smaller equipment that 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.
