ACI’s Director of Policy and Research, Dr. Krisztina Pusok, testified before the Council of the District of Columbia’s Committee on Transportation and Environment on the economic and consumer benefits of deploying wireless broadband (5G) technology in the city. Her comments are available here.
This piece discusses why policymakers at all levels of government need to do their part to advocate for sensible policies that minimize red tape and ensure that 5G can be rolled out quickly and efficiently. Every community in the U.S., no matter how large or small, stands to benefit from this state-of-the-art broadband connectivity. You […]
On the heels of its decision last month to issue a national framework for 5G wireless deployment, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is poised to take another positive step to spur the deployment of next-generation wireless technology. Next week, the FCC will vote on proposed regulatory changes to the 3.5 GHz spectrum band, which many […]
Last month, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) issued an order to streamline the deployment of the next generation of wireless telecommunications technology, 5G. This measure is a significant victory for American consumers. Upgrading the nation’s wireless communications infrastructure to 5G will mean lower latency and Internet speeds at least ten times faster than what current […]
The 5th generation wireless (5G) service being deployed today promises to deliver super-fast low latency broadband to phones or homes. Despite some highly promising applications, health care is underrepresented in its use of broadband for competitive and policy reasons but not for technical reasons. The usual pathway for your use of 5G would be via […]
This Wednesday, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will consider a regulatory ruling that will speed the deployment of next-generation networks and arrival of 5G services by – among other things – setting shot clocks on the approval process for deploying small cell infrastructure. This development could not come at a better time. To read this […]
24 million Americans — many of whom live in rural areas — don’t have access to high-speed, broadband internet in their homes. But a new study says that next generation wireless broadband, 5G, may be within reach for many rural Americans, if only state and local governments reduce fees that discourage private-sector investment. While there’s […]

Equipment makers, network carriers, and regulators have been working on policy initiatives that could accelerate the deployment of next generation wireless and wireline broadband networks and applications. These innovative new networks are expected to deliver a leap in speed to consumer and business applications. The upgrade in speed from 5G wireless networks is expected to […]
Today, a coalition of nonprofit organizations sent a letter to Congress urging them to streamline regulations to encourage investment and the deployment of 5G wireless broadband services that consumers are demanding. The letter can be viewed here.
