Connect Alabama Today

Alabama needs small cell legislation to help bring more jobs, investment and innovative faster wireless internet technology — including 5G — to fuel our state’s economy.

Help bring us closer to 5G

The Alabama legislature is considering small cell legislation that will make it easier for us to improve your wireless experience and enhance our existing network coverage, speed and quality. And it will help us prepare for future technologies such as 5G, smart cities and the Internet of Things (IoT).

Innovation needs collaboration, and we need your help today! Please join with your community and ask your elected officials to support small cell legislation. Your voice makes a difference.

Small Cells will: 

  • Help address the growing demand for wireless data

Between 2007 and 2018, data traffic on AT&T’s mobile network has grown more than 470,000%. Streaming video is more popular than ever. New apps and services are introduced every day. With no sign of slowing, the data keeps growing.

  • Provide Alabama with a first step toward the next generation of technologies and services
    • We’re preparing Alabama for the future of connectivity and small cells can help us get there faster. Small cells provide a better mobile LTE experience today and build the foundation for future technologies such as 5G, smart cities and the Internet of Things (IoT).
  • Increase network capacity where it’s needed most
    • The size and flexibility of small cells allow us to target areas, helping ensure network performance meets local needs. 
  • Small but mighty
    • Small cells are compact and unobtrusive. Most typically mount on existing street lamps and poles along with other infrastructure.
