5G Global Race: How America Wins .

Meredith Attwell Baker
President & CEO

They are doing this by investing billions, allocating huge blocks of spectrum and conducting hundreds of trials. 5G leadership means billions in economic growth and millions of jobs in the industries of the future, such as autonomous cars, smart cities, the Internet of Things, mobile healthcare and more. How do we make sure that the U.S. wins this global race?

Here’s how.

We empower the competitive U.S. wireless industry. This is not only the American way, it is the wireless way. Innovators in the U.S. created the first mobile phone, the iPhone, global leading 1G to 4G networks, and are ready to do it again for 5G.
