A bipartisan bill has been introduced to boost U.S. involvement in 5G networks

July 16, 2019 / JASON ENGLAND

The rollout of 5G has been big news this year as network operators ramp up the deployment to more and more cities. The next-gen network will provide lightning-fast speeds and lower latency connections that will enable new possibilities for future technologies, such as augmented reality and connected devices. The big problem at the moment, besides the limited coverage, is China is currently winning the 5G race (at least according to Washington). Last Monday, legislation was introduced by Michael McCaul of Texas, a Republican lawmaker, to help combat China's 5G dominance. The bill would make it a priority for the United States to step up and help create standards for the 5G cellular network internationally.
