FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr
Chairman Pai: "The report maintains the same benchmark speed for fixed broadband service previously adopted by the Commission, which we earlier proposed to retain: 25 Mbps download/3 Mbps upload.
At the Federal Communications Commission, we’re working to be good partners for broadband builders like you [Wireless internet service providers].
I want to provide an update on the significant progress we’ve made in the US to update our infrastructure rules.
For America to win the race to 5G, we must invigorate the free market by empowering our tower crews.
Instead of embracing 5G, San Jose (CA) Mayor Sam Liccardo taxed it. Beginning in 2015, the city sought up to $3,500 per year per small cell.
Spending time like this outside of DC—hearing directly from community leaders and broadband providers alike—is critical.
Indiana is going to be one of the first states in the country to see 5G—the next-generation of wireless broadband. Indiana’s national leadership in mobile broadband is a direct result of this state’s policy decisions.
FCC Commissioner Carr Remarks at Senate Broadband Caucus -- "Agriculture and Broadband for Strong Rural Communities"
We know the need for broadband in rural America. And we know the lost productivity and the lost job opportunities when fast connections are lacking.
We are in the midst of a global race to 5G. There is a lot at stake in winning this race.
As a policymaker, I am committed to seeing the US win the 5G race.
