WASHINGTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#5G—5G LLC, a leading provider of connectivity technology solutions for the real estate industry, has signed an agreement with IHG Hotels & Resorts (IHG), one of the world’s leading hotel companies, to enable owners of more than 3,800 IHG-branded hotels in the United States to develop a long-term digital revenue stream by connecting hotel rooftops with leading 5G networks. 5G LLC is working closely with IHG and the IHG Owners Association to provide opportunities for owners to benefit from this new marketplace opportunity.

“5G LLC is delighted to be working with one of the world’s leading brands in the hotel industry to unlock rooftop lease revenue and help manage it as a long-term asset,” said Nikki Boatwright, Senior Director of Business Development at 5G LLC. “We are thrilled to also be partnering with the IHG Owners Association to accelerate this rollout.”
5G LLC is working with thousands of portfolio managers and all major carriers in the United States to quickly deploy and expand 5G connectivity. 5G LLC uniquely delivers valuable experience in working with both carriers and leaders in the commercial real estate sector to help clients capitalize on untapped opportunity.
“Demand is growing considerably for rooftop connectivity for 5G,” said Rick Varnell, Managing Director of 5G LLC. “Leaders from commercial real estate and telecommunications have been looking for ways to bridge the operating challenges that can lead to significant potential for hotel owners. 5G LLC is at the forefront of that solution.”
5G LLC allows commercial real estate owners to become an immediate on-ramp to national 5G deployments. In turn, these owners can receive a long-term financial benefit from transforming their rooftops into a recurring revenue stream which drives net operating income and increases asset value.
