wireless coverage is provided by a combination of cell site designs.
Most sites in the "High-Band
" frequencies use small

" channels use more
conventional sites often found on
towers and roof tops. In your search for cell site locations,
these small sites are built within existing licensed areas of
each carrier and therefore do not need to be individually-licensed.
So, there is no publicly-available database of these
The Mid- and Low-Band sites are most often located on existing
wireless structures such as towers, poles and building-tops, which
should be in already-licensed locations, which also means there is
not a publicly-available database of these 5G sites.
there eventually may be newly-licensed sites dedicated to 5G, the
carriers are not
obligated to indicate what technology is utilized on any new sites.
Lists containing 5G sites exist, but they they are a
closely-guarded secret...for security purposes. In the absence of such
data, we offer these tools to find 5G cell sites:

these specific sites.
Cell Site Locations May be
Available from Your Local Government
Your local city or county may make their locations available publicly
but you may need to search through records in the Building or Planning
departments. In some cases, carriers convince your local
government officials that a new 5G site will benefit the community with
faster and more advanced coverage, and the government may
reveal that information in the hopes of looking progressive and to
deflate the typical new site complaints.
