Donald Trump says America must win race to build 5G

Donald Trump says America must win race to build 5G

"We can not allow any other country to outcompete the United States in this powerful industry of the future", Trump said at the White House. "This is to me the future".

FCC chairman Ajit Pai joined the president for the event, announcing the biggest auction of wireless spectrum in history by December.

US telecommunications providers are racing to be first to market with 5G connections.

"We want Americans to be the first to benefit from this new digital revolution", Pai said. "And we don't want rural Americans to be left behind".

The $20.7 million Rural Digital Opportunity Fund, to come from existing FCC subsidy coffers, is meant to connect up to 4 million American homes over the next decade. The current rules “impair the ability of users to deploy small, next-generation networking devices on their own property, ” The proposed changes would allow private property owners to install “hub and relay antennas” to expand the reach of 5G. Trump and FCC Chairman Ajit Pai will announce their plans at a White House event Friday afternoon.

5G data speeds are up to ten times faster than 4G LTE speeds and will eventually help birth new companies and services.

"5G networks must be secured". The president boasted that by the end of the year, 92 markets in the USA will support 5G compared to 48 in South Korea. According to some estimates, the wireless industry plans to invest $275 billion in 5G networks, creating 3 million American jobs quickly, and adding $500 billion to our economy.

Pai explained the technologies should give the US a "leg up" as the USA competes around the world.

A State Department senior official on Wednesday said the security concerns about Huawei and ZTE extend to all companies headquartered in China, contending they are effectively "under direction" of the Chinese Communist Party. The agency said that the auction is "critical to ensuring USA leadership in 5G". Huawei is the world's largest maker of such equipment. South Korea-based Samsung is offering itself as a global alternative to Chinese equipment manufacturers, but it still lags Huawei and ZTE, as well as Sweden's Ericsson and Finland's Nokia. Two other swaths are being sold in a set of auctions nearing their conclusion, and the FCC is contemplating a request from satellite-service providers Intelsat SA and SES SA to sell part of their airwaves holdings for 5G use. Democratic FCC Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel said the auction is a good step but the commission must also pivot "to mid-band" spectrum "or risk falling behind other countries".
