White House to unveil latest 5G push and rural broadband initiative

Trump hearts 5G

"And we don't want rural Americans to be left behind", he said. Full-fledged nationwide 5G service is still more than a year away, but last week New York-based Verizon Communications Inc. started the first 5G mobile phone service in parts of Minneapolis and Chicago.

Trump and FCC Chairman Ajit Pai will announce their plans at a White House event Friday afternoon.

"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.

Also this afternoon, the FCC announced the largest auction of spectrum in US history.

According to FCC chairman, American wireless carriers would be bidding for as much as 3.4 gigahertz of "millimeter-wave" spectrum starting on December 10 this year. We are removing regularity barriers to the buildout of networks.

The fight is taking place at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles and will get underway in the early hours of Saturday morning. How can I watch Crolla vs Lomachenko? "I come to the United Kingdom , unify titles, so we'll see".

The Rural Digital Opportunity Fund aims to provide funding through a reverse auction to service providers in areas without access to high-speed service and aims to connect up to four million rural homes and small businesses to high-speed broadband networks.

Verizon, one of America's largest telecommunications companies, announced on April 3 the official operation of its commercial 5G network in two USA cities, making it the world's first commercial 5G mobile service for customers with 5G-equipped smartphones. The chairman said, "We believe that the security and reliability of 5G is absolutely important, not just as a matter of national competitiveness, but also as a matter of national security".

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

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. The U.S. government has effectively banned the Chinese telecom equipment maker Huawei in the majority of U.S. networks due to concerns about Chinese government spying and has pressured allies to do the same as they build out 5G.
