5G Across the Globe
5G is already has some positive outcome when it comes to businesses so with them going international will be great for many and as well as customers. This will be great what they have like Cloud which is networking and and connecting with many others etc.

Clean... Beautiful.. 5G
> "the Trump administration is reportedly considering the buildout of a nationalized 5G network to accelerate progress in the States and protect against cybercriminals..."

Municipal fiber networks aren't crazy, but a nationalized 5G network sounds a bit outlandish. How would a national 5G network even work? Would the US govt take back the wireless spectrum it auctioned off already?

This article in Fortune provides a detailed explanation of The administrations proposal, http://fortune.com/2018/01/30/national-security-council-nationalized-5g-proposal/ Anonymity would not be allowed - one of the measure designed to protect against Chinese cyberattacks.

Ha! Good luck on that. They'd have to change the whole foundation of the internet to eliminate anonymity. And what would that even mean to do so? It wouldn't necessarily improve security. We know who all the 9/11 terrorists in the airplanes were -- and that didn't do anything to prevent it. Anonymity is something that can be both good and bad. And it's not something that we should waste resources trying to eliminate completely, IMO.

Re: Clean... Beautiful.. 5G
@mhhf1ve, I am with you on this!  It sounds more like an aspirational goal than a strategic one.  The President may like that outcome but the market will not work that way, as we know.  And your point about the recent steps to auction off are a great example of how the train is already moving down the tracks, picking up the tracks and redirecting them now would not be easy.  Just look at the turmoil still under way with net neutrality?

Re: Clean... Beautiful.. 5G
There are a lot of outlandish proposals.. (ahem, there's one out there about our southern neighbor paying for an impractical non-fence barrier..)

Perhaps there are some good ideas in the proposal -- and I'm surprised that Trump's base isn't shocked at "nationalizing" things. (Though I suppose it's harder to tie healthcare to national security...) If the Obama administration had a leaked proposal like this -- I can just imagine the backlash of arguments against it.

Re: Clean... Beautiful.. 5G
@mhhf1ve, exactly!  Without a cohesive strategy this could open pandora's box!  And you are correct about the motivations that would be attributed to such a proposal in the past.

That is why there needs to be a comprehensive "design" (i.e., strategy) that will guide the development and ensure the steps we take are steps forward not back.

@batye, good analysis!  That is the inherent problem with government making the decisions - it tends to be "how" I want to spend the dollars, as opposed to who has the need and how can I deliver to provide needed services that customers will pay for.

Re: Clean... Beautiful.. 5G
I would think that this is just more chest pounding from a leader who speaks first and thinks second, if at all. I haven't read the proposal but just on the surface, this seems infeasible. Plus, wouldn't this take a lot of taxpayer money not just to initiate, but to continually oversee? Possibly even a whole new agency?

Re: Clean... Beautiful.. 5G
Well, I don't think this proposal is really the work of our so-called POTUS. It's from his advisors -- who are just naive and inexperienced in government roles. But I do find it surprising that "nationalizing" 5G wouldn't be something that they would normally call "socialist" or something along those lines. But this administration is full of contradictions, so perhaps nothing should be surprising anymore -- and the cognitive dissonance should stop alarming anyone.

@afwriter - I suspect you're correct, this is nothing more than chest pounding to get his name out into the media again. People will criticize his actions, he'll send out a tweet, cue pundit shows mocking him. It's a never ending story. Similar to 5G where everyone races to be the first to release 5G. But in the end, people who have a reliable service are unlikely to leave their current carrier for new technology that more often than not is filled with bugs that will need to be worked out.

One network to rule them all...
A single network that's forced to share isn't actually a crazy idea -- I think the UK's Ofcom regulates its fiber network? Wireless is, however, a completely different beast. The spectrum licenses have largely been auctioned already, so it's unclear how the govt would even start to build a 5G network without taking some spectrum back somehow?

Yah, a small country doesn't need to have that many competing networks -- there's a loss of efficiency in the market. But for the US, it would be monopolistic to have only one wireless network....

Without getting too political, it is indeed challenging times we have to contend with.   The problem, though, is that such is distracting from the profound problems--including for instance research in transformational technologies that the Government has been at the forefront of.

Intel is partnering with top computer and software companies - HP, Dell and Lenovo. By the end of 2019, the partnership will provide 5g connectivity in PCs. The goal is to provide 5G in time for Christmas holiday shopping season. 

Intel will compbine their processors with XMM 8060 5G modems to provide data connectivity to consumers.

This will allow the partner to tap into a new market base of consumers who never used 2G, 3G or 4G and those are interested in 5G and those who are excited about using 5G.
