Commissioner Brendan Carr will be in Indianapolis Tuesday to detail the Federal Communications Commission’s next steps in its efforts to boost the nationwide rollout of 5G wireless technology. AT&T just announced Indianapolis would be the seventh city for its version of the higher-speed service, joining Verizon who detailed its 5G plans for the city earlier in August.
Carr traveled to Indianapolis earlier this year to examine where the state stands on connectivity. 5G is billed as delivering speeds that are 100 times faster than current technology.
Joining Carr Tuesday morning at the Indiana Statehouse will be Senator Todd Young (R-Ind.), Congresswoman Susan Brooks (R-5), State Senator Jim Merritt (R-31), Indiana Chamber President Kevin Brinegar and TechPoint Chief Executive Officer Mike Langellier.
