Mar 22, 2018 by AFP

Arlington, Va. – Americans for Prosperity today praised the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for voting to unleash the implementation of 5G by removing regulatory barriers to access in an effort to boost innovation in America’s next generation mobile network. At the FCC’s monthly meeting today, commissioners approved proposed rules seeking to streamline wireless infrastructure deployment.

AFP Federal Affairs Director Mary Kate Hopkins issued the following statement: 

“This is a welcome move from the FCC that will remove unnecessary hurdles to the development of the 5G network and will allow America to continue as a leader in technological innovation. We applaud Commissioner Carr for advancing this proposal and commend the FCC for eliminating needless obstacles to advancing opportunities that have the ability to transform our society.”

BACKGROUND:  

new 5G mobile network will mean greater speed to move data, lower latency to be more responsive, and the ability to connect more devices at once for sensors and smart devices. The move is a critical one that will unleash innovation by removing unnecessary government barriers to technological advances. Specifically, it will modernize and streamline the outdated regulatory process to encourage 5G deployment.
