The fifth generation of wireless and a new level of mobile connectivity is on the horizon, bringing increased speeds and enhanced coverage. This is a connected future that we are just now beginning to glimpse—connected homes, smarter vehicles, and telehealth, for example—and more broadly, the Internet of Things (IoT).

5G is the next generation of wireless.

The benefits of a faster network are limited only by our imagination. Some benefits include:

Policy

Infrastructure reform is crucial for 5G. Currently, delays in permitting application processing and extraordinarily high costs make it challenging for us to realize the benefits of this new and innovative technology.

What We Want

We need reforms—greater access, reduced costs, and streamlined processes—that reflect new infrastructure technologies, such as small cells, to make 5G a reality.
