Geoff Why to Moderate "The Future is Now: 5G Wireless Networks"

On October 26, Verrill telecommunications attorney Geoffrey Why will be moderating the virtual event, “The Future is Now: 5G Wireless Networks,” hosted by The Maine State Chamber of Commerce. The Wireless Summit will explore how wireless technology will be integral to providing high speed broadband access in rural, suburban, and urban communities in Maine. Joining Geoff on the panel are the following clients:

  • Sanjay Udani – VP Technology Policy - Verizon
  • Beth Cooley – Assistant Vice President, State Legislative Affairs - CTIA
  • Kimberly Darrin – Assistant Vice President – Public Policy, AT&T

5G has the capability to upgrade current bandwidth using a combination of wireless and wireline connections that will enable faster data downloads and upload speeds, wider coverage, more stable connections, and less latency over shorter physical distances. 5G is leading to major enhancements for health care applications, industrial equipment, self-driving cars, smart cities, and connected devices. The workshop also will highlight how good policy can pave the way for more investment and how 5G networks will positively impact the economy.

Jim Cohen of Verrill’s Telecommunications Group assisted in developing the program.
