US Government Will Build Better Infrastructure For 5G Network: Donald Trump

FCC to hold big 5G auction spend $20B for rural internet

The agency said he will talk about these 5G initiatives at a White House event with President Donald Trump later Friday. According to the FCC, the fund will "inject" $20.4 billion into broadband networks to connect up to 4 million rural homes and businesses with high-speed broadband over the next decade.

Pai explained that the FCC is making strides by freeing up spectrum, making it easier to install wireless infrastructure by rolling back regulations, and encouraging the deployment of optical fiber.

President Trump also dismissed a former potential strategy, developed by a former National Security Council senior official, Rob Spalding, to get the government more involved in securing 5G throughout development.

The United States has good chances to outcompete other players in developing 5G telecommunications network, Federal Communications Commission Chairman (FCC) Ajit Pai said during a press briefing.

Love Machine host Steve Yousif posted on Facebook: "Overwhelmed with all your calls and texts, nothing but love for you all". Prahran shooting update: two people in critical conditions in the Alfred Hospital, a third is in a stable condition.


The Trump administration wants the U.S.to lead in the global race to 5G. Ultimately, that's what others will have to think about in terms of the appropriate regulatory framework. He pointed out that US allies understand the importance of having a secure 5G network, and "the risk profile of certain equipment and services".

5G promises ultra-reliable speeds up to 1,000 times faster than 4G, as well as better capacity and lower latency, which will help improve business outcomes for customers, solution providers told CRN in October.

"We want Americans to be the first to benefit from this new digital revolution", Pai said.

"The White House has yet to offer a workable plan for US leadership", Rosenworcel said. He also took the opportunity to discuss Huawei.

Raikkonen's Italian team mate Antonio Giovinazzi failed to set a time due to engine problems and starts 19th and last on the grid. Team-mate Gasly was held up behind him and the Haas drivers Kevin Magnussen and Romain Grosjean were also caught out.


CTIA, an industry trade group, said Friday that Trump's statement "puts an end - once and for all - to any misguided notions of nationalizing spectrum resources or government-mandated wholesale 5G markets".

Riley, at the Heritage Foundation, told VOA that the United States "can still limit the proliferation of imports that have a security concern, but it will be hard for USA companies to compete in price in external markets". The FCC is taking very bold action, bolder than theyve ever taken before, to make wireless spectrum available.

Trump said the 5G industry in the United States would be "private sector-driven and private sector-led", so the USA government does not have to spend lots of money. Pai said consideration is "ongoing" without offering a deadline for a decision.
