Residents in Algonac may soon have 5G wireless coming to the city. At the Algonac City Council meeting on September 17th, the council gave the approval to the City Manager, Denice A. Gerstenberg to enter into a contract with AT&T Wireless. The company wants to place 5G wireless installations on public structures.
It was explained at the meeting that the structures could be buildings or simply a pole placed by the company. The city would retain control over what structure the devices could be placed on. The company is required to submit a plan for each of the installations, and a permit will be issued for each installation as well. The agreement is a non-exclusive licensing agreement, meaning that other companies could compete for the same wireless business.
