  • Why We Care

    Whoever is first across the finish line for the next generation of mobile technology will reap incredible economic benefits; wireless services generate $400 billion in annual economic activity. And it’s more than just the billions of investments in wireless networks. From driverless cars to smart electrical grids and remote health monitoring, 5G will spark innovation that promises to touch every sector of the economy. 5G will be ten times faster than 4G and the benefits go beyond speed. Lower latency and greater capacity will test the limits of our imagination for connectivity. The United States needs smart infrastructure and spectrum policies to unleash the full potential of 5G for every American community.
