The US has reiterated its desire to be the global leader in the development deployment 5G networks with the announcement of a new spectrum auction, public funding, and government assurances.

President Donald Trump has considered nationalising the country’s 5G infrastructure in a bid to establish leadership, but he has now promised to let the private sector lead the way and has urged them to move quickly.

“In the United States our approach is private-sector driven and private-sector led. The government doesn’t have to spend lots of money,” Trump said. “Leading through the government, it won’t be nearly as good, nearly as fast.”

His comments have been welcomed by industry groups who believed the speculation was harmful to the market and that government intervention would be misguided. AT&T and Verizon have already launched 5G services, while Sprint and T-Mobile are expected to follow suit once the first compatible handsets are made available.
