"We applaud President Trump and National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow for standing by the incredibly strong team of FCC Commissioners this administration has assembled, including Chairman Ajit Pai".

5G networks are expected to be at least 100 times faster than the current 4G networks, cut delays and allow for innovations in a number of fields. "Whether it is agriculture, healthcare, transportation or manufacturing - all of these have a very compelling 5G use case", said Pai.

On Friday, the United States FCC has announced that it will take a couple of measures to expedite the development of 5G in the US.
