“America has a long tradition of being a global leader in breakthrough technologies that improve our quality of life. It should be no different with 5G deployment,” said Congressman Walberg. “By having the best and brightest from industry and government collaborate on the international stage, we can continue to be on the forefront of wireless innovation and ensure high-paying jobs stay here in the United States.”
“The policy choices being made right now will have lasting implications for 5G technology development around the world,” said Congresswoman Dingell. “It’s vital the United States have a strong voice in these decisions so we can continue to lead in an increasingly competitive market.”
