Smart policies needed to drive 5G deployment

To accelerate the benefits of 5G, we need elected leaders at every level of government to adopt smart policies that support the deployment of new infrastructure. Fortunately, policymakers are already moving in the right direction. Leaders on both sides of the aisle and across the federal government have sent strong signals that it’s time to double down on America’s future in 5G, and time to start finding ways to accelerate deployment, remove regulatory barriers, connect local communities and close the digital divide. Just recently, Congress has introduced a flurry of new infrastructure bills, the impetus for the hearing noted above. Additionally, there is broad bipartisan support for including broadband in any new federal infrastructure bill.

We’re excited by these first steps, and encourage policymakers to push these efforts forward. Working together, we can modernize our infrastructure and make the promise of next-generation technologies a reality. Verizon is excited to be working with communities across America to deliver the networks of tomorrow today. Pro-investment infrastructure policies at every level of government coupled with cutting-edge next-generation networks are key components of ensuring America’s continued global leadership in broadband technology.
