5G Poised to Reshape Tech Policy for Disadvantaged Communities
Experts at a Brookings Institution panel discussion agreed today that 5G wireless technology has the potential to impact tech policy on Capitol Hill and beyond, including historically disadvantaged communities with people of color and those who live in rural areas where internet access is not as readily available as in more populated areas. To better reach those communities with cutting-edge communications infrastructure, the panel came to a consensus on being more aggressive about policies to promote more 5G infrastructure and service deployment. “It won’t happen organically,” warned Donald Cravins, Jr., Senior VP for Policy at the National Urban League. Panelists said that 5G technology should have the effects of making basic wireless service less expensive and enabling more internet of things (IoT) devices, and therefore enable the more efficient delivery of more essential services to areas and communities on the lower end of the socioeconomic spectrum.
