Trump says America must win race to build 5G

Standing next to his handpicked FCC chairman Ajit Pai, Trump said that the USA must win the race to 5G.

The Federal Communications Commission said Friday that it would hold the largest auction in US history, of 3,400 megahertz, to boost wireless companies' networks.

For the rural broadband fund, the FCC is repurposing funds to create the Rural Digital Opportunity Fund.

"Qualcomm is the country's only hope for 5G and 6G leadership and with the FTC about to potentially hobble it, the USA will never be a leader, China will", predicted Morehead, a former industry executive. Pai said that proposal is still pending.

The Trump administration wants the lead in the global race to 5G.

Pai said the FCC still needs to go through the notice and comment process on the proposal, but he wants the funding to be given to companies through a reverse auction.

"So far, this Administration's interventions on 5G have done more harm than good", Rosenworcel said in a statement. A head start by the United States, for example, could allow American firms to gain a dominant footing in the burgeoning market for smart devices and the next-generation of digital services. South Korea became the first country to deploy 5G network nationwide.

The United States, New Zealand and Australia have banned China's Huawei from developing their 5G networks, citing security threats.

The upcoming airwaves auction is not the first of the 5G era. The commission will sell millimeter-wave spectrum at three different frequency bands: 37 gigahertz, 39 GHz and 47 GHz.

"Today the USA announces auctions in the 37, 39 & 47 GHz bands".

The measures havent yet been put into place, but todays announcement proposes the bidding procedures for the biggest auction of spectrum in US History.

The agency spent $34.5 billion on rural-broadband network subsidy programs from 2010 to 2017, according to the Government Accountability Office. Money for the USF is raised by fees that carriers add to consumer phone bills.

Pai responded to the criticism telling Yahoo Finance he believes America is leading the 5G race and he hopes "to move forward in a bipartisan way to maintain that American leadership".

President Trump shot down the idea of a nationalized 5G network at the White House event on Friday.

Industry groups welcomed the twin announcements.

The FCC's own 2018 broadband report estimates that 30 million Americans lack access to high-speed internet, though a recent fact sheet released by the Commission touting progress in broadband deployment was dubbed as "misleading" by critics, including Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel. Its capacity is higher but its coverage lower than the mid-band spectrum. Pai said consideration is "ongoing" without offering a deadline for a decision.
