The race for 5G and the risks if America doesn’t get it right
By Newt Gingrich (Original source Fox News)
“I hope you will listen to the latest episode of my Newt’s World podcast, in which I have an important conversation about the race for – and risks associated with – 5G technology.
America is currently in a global competition with China to see which country will lead in the global deployment of 5G. Currently, China is winning. This may be the most important challenge we currently face for protecting our national security, economy, and quality of life.
This next generation technology will vastly expand our connectivity and dramatically change our everyday lives. It is so powerful and offers so many opportunities and potential threats, it will fundamentally change the world in which we live. Further, the country that wins this race will dominate economically, militarily, and in sheer knowledge.
This new system is not an incremental step from the current 4G technology. This is not just about downloading more movies on your iPad. The full deployment of 5G is going to be the backbone of autonomous manufacturing, smart homes, self-driving cars, real-time virtual reality, and many other life-changing technologies.”
