The Bureau of Street Lighting is the first in the nation to install SmartPole streetlights, equipped with energy-efficient LED lighting and 4G LTE wireless technology.  One hundred of these innovative streetlights will be installed across Los Angeles in the first year, and 500 additional poles will be added over the next four years.

The SmartPoles will deliver enhanced, reliable wireless broadband coverage to businesses, visitors, and citizens by integrating small cell technology into standard city street lights--improving the wireless network for Angelenos' smart phones in dense urban areas.

By leasing the valuable digital real estate on top of city light poles, this project will self-fund, resulting in no cost to tax payers and generating hundreds of thousands of dollars of revenue for the city.
