City webpage offers local look at 5G network

August 23, 2019 -

In response to resident interest, the City of Kingston has launched a new webpage to offer information about 5G – fifth generation mobile wireless – networks.

"We have been receiving many resident questions about 5G networks and wanted to offer a local resource to point people to sources of information," says JC Kenny, director, communications and customer experience.

She points out that neither the City, nor Utilities Kingston has any service contracts for 5G service and that none of the telecom service providers operating in Kingston currently offer 5G service.

While the regulation of 5G and other digital cellular networks sits with the Federal Government, the webpage has been launched to speak to questions about the City's role when it comes to 5G networks.

The webpage offers answers to frequently asked questions about 5G networks as well as links to other government bodies that have connections to this issue, including the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC), KFL&A Public Health and Utilities Kingston. See the "About 5G Networks and Kingston" webpage.
