5G will usher in a new wave of products and services for telecommunications customers, but the shift has to be managed well through a coordinated federal-level strategy. This bill will help ensure that the government has a plan to oversee 5G’s secure deployment both domestically and abroad.
A government-led effort on 5G implementation in the U.S. is needed to respond to the challenges posed by China’s aggressive 5G deployment efforts. By blocking the consideration of nationalized 5G, this bill hamstrings the federal government’s ability to adequately respond to telecommunications challenges.
