WASHINGTON – Today, ITI, the global voice of the tech sector, commended the Trump administration’s commitment to U.S. advancement of 5G and next-generation networks.

“The rapid deployment of cutting-edge technologies like spectrum and 5G networks is essential to advancing innovations that will revolutionize our lives, work, and communities,” said Jason Oxman, ITI’s President and CEO. “Connecting new airwaves with private sector ingenuity will create more opportunities to propel technologies that rely on high-speed, wireless networks. The deployment of 5G will enable transformation and innovation across all sectors of the U.S. economy, from autonomous vehicles and smart cities and communities, to precision agriculture and telemedicine. By taking an industry-led approach to 5G and expanding broadband access nationwide, this new effort will help ensure more Americans can reap the economic, educational, and societal benefits that these technologies and connectivity provide. We look forward to working with the Trump administration, industry partners, and stakeholders across the United States to implement this plan and further realize the potential of 5G and next-generation networks for all Americans.”
