senate Bill S. 893

Should the President Create an Inter-Agency Strategy to Secure 5G for the U.S. and its Allies?

Argument in favor

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.

It’s the governments responsibility to provide the communication infrastructure. The telecom businesses shouldn’t be building them at all. They should have to pay rent to use them like truckers paying tolls on a federally built road.

Argument opposed

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.

I do not trust this administration - nor this GOP Senator - nor the GOP dominated senate to do anything- and especially not something this important. So, no.

Restore Net Neutrality 1st please And then....Only if moving to the 5G network increases overall National network security AND reduces our current National risk level of cyber threats. 🧩Tax payers should not have to fund infrastructure for corporations and 1%er network upgrades, while being the primary target of corporate predatory practices. ⏱Otherwise, wait until after the 2020 election: then, maybe, we won’t have to change the codes and find/remove all of President Putin’s back door access points. Besides, are Trump’s allies and the US’ allies even on the same list? Moreover, is Trump mentally capable of distinguishing the difference? 🧠Hint: Trump doesn’t have allies, he uses friend and foe alike: as a tool to assist, access, and/or achieve his primary target. The lack of authentic empathy is one of the primary characteristics of his mental illness: NPD. On a side note and to prevent the future opportunities for misinformation campaigns surrounding the 5G debate: “Earlier this month, the New York Times reported that RT, the Russia-backed television network based in the U.S., has been peddling unverified stories claiming that 5G wireless technology can be linked to cancer, autism, Alzheimer's and other health problems. "Hundreds of blogs and websites appear to be picking up the network’s 5G alarms, seldom if ever noting the Russian origins," the Times notes. "Analysts call it a treacherous fog." -Axios

Anything this man does turns to shit so I’m going to have to respond with a no. A panel of his best men is only going to protect this interest of the profit makers. He’s too stupid and behind the times that when he gets around to putting together a panel that things will have changed so much that they will be so far behind they will need a panel to figure out what to do next.

    No. First, I don’t think this Administration knows who it’s allies are and would immediately hand the tech over to Russia and Saudi Arabia. Second We do not have the ability to properly build 5G at this time. China does but we keep accusing them of spying and stealing our tech pretty much without solid proof and insisting neither we nor other countries do business with them. Third, I have concerns over whether we have studied this tech well enough prior to jumping into it. This is nothing like the last generation and there are cons as well as pros. I do not believe the cons have been discussed at all in the rush to jump to 5G yet numerous weather services have stated they believe it will interfere with their ability to accurately report weather in a timely basis and to track storms. That alone might affect a couple people. Lastly, I don’t believe trump knows what 5G is, nor what cooperation is. This would just be the latest shiny toy to play with. We have far more important issues right now. Should you wish to secure something, secure our elections and our Constitution.

    Republicans from this Congress have met with Russians in secret. They traveled to Russia on our Independence Day 2017! All you have to do is Google this. Republicans cannot be trusted, particularly with our communications systems, because of their close and secret connections to our most dangerous foreign adversary.

    Securing networks is the responsibility of network providers. Not government. Additionally... with Prism STILL in place, this government has zero credibility on this topic. They will use this opportunity to increase there illegal surveillance efforts.

    Yes the FCC is supposed to set and enforce standards and violations of the rules. So go ahead and set standards. This bill however and Cornyn in particular reeks of pandering to the telecommunications giants who have effectively created an untouchable monopoly in the last 3 years!! So vote NO on this. American businesses won the global 4G race but were too slow off the mark to get a foot in the door for this. It was Huawei who pursued this actively and hence why there are now “problems” with them. This is pure government by corporation or in other words. Either let the free market work or step out. But stop taking your orders and money from corporations to give them benefits that your constituents don’t get.

    This president and his administration are not to be trusted. Their goal is to become a dictatorship. The members of Congress that support him and his administration need to be voted out. They are not serving the American people, and they most certainly are not living up to their oath of office.

    The market and technology for 5G will evolve with or without government oversight-and will evolve faster without government oversight. Setting up oversight panels, committee etc. will only assure that we will be left behind as rest of the world is free to adapt new tech. I do support our intelligence agencies constant monitoring the 5G evolution to protect us from those who would find ways to exploit it. I don’t think it possible to administrate how the evolution will develop.

    Programs work better without ”I’m from the Government and I'm here to help.” Is this question really about having the Government take over the telecommunications architecture of G5? Didn't hear talk about G4. Best leave the G5 infrastructure to cellular companies. Let China worry about China.

    One, I don’t trust Trump’s Administration has the ethics to take on such a task. Two, the implementation of small cell antennas every 750 feet - not miles - to support the 5G networks is an infrastructure issue that will likely involve the cooperation between service providers, local, state and federal property owners, governments and the FCC. I would imagine that smaller communities will need a financial stimulus package to support this undertaking. Also, how do you support 5G in large, unpopulated areas such as National Parks and Forest Preserves?

    👍🏻👍🏻 Senate BILL S.893 AKA “the Secure 5G and Beyond Act”👍🏻👍🏻 Of course the Leftist Leaning commentators on the site will not agree that I recommend and support the passage of this Senate BILL S.893 AKA the Secure 5G and Beyond Act of 2019 which would require the president to create an inter-agency strategy to secure 5th generation (5G) and future generation technology and infrastructure in the U.S. and with the U.S.’ strategic allies. The president would be required to help foreign allies in maximizing their telecommunication networks’ security. 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. SneakyPete..... 👍🏻👍🏻S-893👍🏻👍🏻. 6*1*19.....
