SUMMARY

This report suggests the Unites States upscale investment in 5G technology and offers policymaking strategies to overcome deployment challenges.

The Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), and other next generational technologies are rapidly becoming the basis for sustainable national economic potential. The support for this economic growth relies on 5G networks, the new standard for wireless communications. 5G enables communication, connection, interaction, of billions of devices, while also collecting data from these devices. 5G is the next connectivity standard to lead consumers, industries, and governments in productivity and innovation.

In comparison to world tech leaders, the United States is losing the pace to be first nationally 5G connected nations. China is building a 5G network infrastructure at an astounding rate. For example, China Tower added around 460 network sites per day; whereas U.S. tower companies and carriers added fewer sites in the last three years than China Tower built in three months. To be first to 5G matters when competing on a global scale. With that said, the United States should establish a national policy to provide deployment statistics, leading practices, and visibility into small cell approval and denial rates.

 This report suggests the U.S. applies a light-touch policy framework that urges suppliers and industry partners collaboratively find solutions without government mediation. 5G technology can collect an unlimited amount of data from an unlimited number of devices and applications. To maintain a competitive edge, the United States must prioritize investing and upgrading 5G network infrastructures.

EVALUATION

This document highlights the amazing economic potential of 5G but falters in representing investment benefits for private industries.

The publishers create a strong comparison between the U.S. and other top tech leaders. However, the document does not supply investment cases that demonstrate external benefits to industries and the public good. Without investment cases, such as industry-specific use cases, the United States, and other late-bloomer nations, may risk losing an economic edge in the next network era.

Pros

  • Professionally designed document
  • Clear writing
  • Effective visual information

Cons

  • Lacks specific use cases
