CTIA Statement on Hawaii Small Cell Infrastructure Bill .
“We applaud Governor Ige, Representative Ohno and Senator Wakai on the passage of Hawaii House Bill 2651. This legislation’s modernization of state rules for small cell deployment will prepare the Aloha State for the economic and civic benefits of 5G networks. According to Accenture, the next-generation of wireless networks will bring more than 3,200 jobs and over $536M in economic growth to Honolulu alone.”
