  • Verizon strikes multimillion-dollar deal to accelerate fiber, small cell deployments in San Diego

San Diego city officials joined Verizon to announce a multimillion-dollar deal to accelerate the
deployment of small-cell facilities and fiber networks in the area. The deal also lays the ground-
work for future smart city solution deployments.

Verizon will enjoy a streamlined permitting process for small cells, which Verizon says will help
expedite wireless technology accessibility throughout San Diego. The revamped permitting
process will reduce review times for Verizon proposals to install or colocate small cell wireless
facilities on city-owned street furniture.

Under the deal, Verizon will work with the city to improve its IT and public safety infrastructure.
Verizon is giving the San Diego Police Department 500 smartphones, and it’s giving the Fire-
Rescue Department 50 tablets, in hopes of improving department communication. Verizon has
also agreed to install advanced traffic data gathering and sensing technologies at five intersections,
to help the city assess vehicular patterns and traffic flow.
