White House to unveil latest 5G push and rural broadband initiative

Trump also announced a $20-billion plan to expand broadband access to rural areas now without it, a decade-long extension of an existing program. It is far more powerful, faster, and smarter than the current standard. Full-fledged nationwide 5G service is still more than a year away, but last week New York-based Verizon Communications Inc. started the first 5G mobile phone service in parts of Minneapolis and Chicago.

The United States has good chances to outcompete other players in developing 5G telecommunications network, Federal Communications Commission Chairman (FCC) Ajit Pai said during a press briefing. As reported by CNBC, Trump today stuck to available technology and joined with the FCC in an attempt to quicken the pace of 5G deployment in the U.S. AT&T already offers mobile 5G by invitation in 19 markets through the use of the Netgear Nighthawk 5G mobile hot spot. "Whether it is agriculture, healthcare, transportation or manufacturing - all of these have a very compelling 5G use case", said Pai.

The announcement comes amid an intense race by countries around the world to deploy the technology offering wireless speeds 10 to 100 times faster than now available. For example, 4G LTE networks helped create the ride-sharing industry, which has turned Uber and Lyft into multi-billion dollar companies.

FCC chief Ajit Pai said that American wireless carriers would be bidding for as much as 3.4 gigahertz of "millimetre-wave" spectrum starting on December 10 this year. "We're removing regulatory barriers to the buildout of networks". Its goal is to connect up to four million rural homes and business to high-speed internet.

Facebook's native app to reportedly get some of Messenger's chat features
The end result is so that users might use only one of Facebook's properties to communicate with others within the same ecosystem. The app is being redesigned by the developers and they are experimenting with the new features of the app.

"We want to get this program stood up as soon as we can, because we recognize the need to close that digital divide in rural America", Pai told reporters on a Friday morning conference call. He also took the opportunity to discuss Huawei.

Trump did not mention the Chinese companies in his remarks Friday, but he said America's 5G networks will "have to be guarded from the enemy".

One challenge is the lack of USA manufacturers of 5G network equipment, an arena where China's Huawei and ZTE are set to dominate.

Since November, the FCC has auctioned 1,550 megahertz of spectrum to be used by commercial wireless providers for 5G connectivity. It has effectively banned Chinese telecom equipment maker Huawei from most US networks due to concerns that it might enable Chinese government spying, which the Huawei denies.
