Madison City Commissioners this week approved an agreement that will help technologically benefit both people and businesses in Madison in the future. During their meeting on Monday, commissioners approved a master license agreement with New Cingular Wireless PCS, doing business as AT&T Mobility Corporation. The agreement will allow for AT&T to develop infrastructure for 5G wireless technology in the city.
Commissioner Mike Waldner said the agreement is similar to one the city approved in 2018 with Verizon Wireless.
Waldner said the improved technology will benefit residents, businesses, and economic development in the city.
Dakota State University President Dr. José-Marie Griffiths told commissioners that 5G technology will improve many areas for the city and the university’s future.
Waldner said the master license agreement with AT&T is a five year agreement.
