The United States has a long history of developing cutting-edge technologies that are powered by free and open markets.
President Donald Trump has made innovation a priority for his administration with the United States leading in technological developments, like building a 5G network.
Yet, there are some companies appear to be using influence within the government to push for government interference while discouraging the companies currently developing these networks from finishing the job.
In order for our country to lead on building a 5G network, it is essential that the network is built by those who have a record in building and managing secure wireless networks.
The future of 5G and the economic health of our country is too important to pull the project from the world’s leading network engineers. With the help of President Trump, we can finish the job in a matter of years, beating China and ushering in a wave of economic opportunity – as long as the federal government doesn’t get in the way.
Experts agree that 5G is critically important to our future. With wireless speeds up to 100 times faster than current 4G networks, 5G will bring vast improvements to industries such as healthcare, transportation, traffic management – you name it. 5G will also drive significant economic benefits, anticipated to generate $500 billion for our economy and create over 3 million jobs.
When we talk about the future of work in America, 5G needs to be at the forefront of discussions. But should any company with a questionable history, no network, and friends in high places be trusted to build this future? No, no they should not.
Disclosure: I do not hold a position in any wireless communication or telecom companies.
