America’s most important infrastructure project is upgrading wireless network to 5G technology, which is expected to have a massive impact on the US economy. It is predicted that the rollout of 5G will create 3million jobs and drive over $500 billion US GDP growth.
The needed upgrade, which will be funded by the private sector, will allow 5G to perform up to ten times faster than the current 4G networks and enable a tremendous boost in data speed. This makes downloading an entire HD movie in just a couple of minutes possible.
5G is also expected to play a crucial role in the field of Internet of Things (IoT) by delivering ubiquitous connectivity with greater reliability and lower power consumption. IoT, which refers to the connection of billions of devices, will drive new innovation and efficiencies, paving the way for amazing things such as autonomous vehicle technology and significant advances in the area of public safety, health and energy.
The flow of information across the USA's mobile network is becoming as important as the flow of goods across the country’s national highway system. By combining massive funding from the private sector with wise policymaking, 5G can be launched more efficiently and maybe, sooner than expected.
