STATEMENT: Mobile Future Statement on Plan to “Nationalize” 5G

January 29, 2018

WASHINGTON, DC – In response to media reports that the Trump Administration may have plans for a government run 5G network, the following statement should be attributed to Robert M. McDowell, Chief Public Policy Advisor of Mobile Future:

“America’s private sector built the world’s best 4G networks in record time and we will do the same with 5G. The private sector will spend nearly $300 billion in risk capital over the next decade, but it can only do that within the right regulatory environment. Mobile Future looks forward to engaging with policymakers to help craft a pro-innovation legal and regulatory construct that will provide the best incentives for continued private investment to deliver the incredible mobile future that is being built today.”
