What do small cell facilities do?

Small cell facilities are low-powered antennas that provide cellular and data coverage to smaller geographic areas, supplementing the larger cellular network and improving service for wireless customers. They are installed and operated by private companies. Small cell equipment meets current 4G (LTE) voice and data demands and city staff understands it will be modified with future 5G higher speed equipment as technology changes.
