Join us for a discussion of current public affairs issues. All members are welcome! This event is closed to working media.

This month, we will discuss the topic of 5G wireless networks and the deployment process for this technology in Seattle. Our panelists will share their take on 5G networks - highlighting its benefits and identifying permit challenges and barriers at the city level.

A 5G wireless network could provide much faster speeds with less latency when connecting, along with the ability to connect more users and devices without slowing connectivity.
