Accelerating 5G in the United States

March 18, 2021 • 10:00 – 10:45 am EDT
The remarks by Representative Matsui was pre-recorded on March 16, 2021.

5G is the infrastructure for the next phase of digital transformation. It will shape the economic future of the United States in the same way that the internet did 25 years ago. 5G involves not just how we build secure infrastructure but how we use it to accelerate innovation and growth. The goal for a 5G strategy is to ensure that the United States maximizes economic returns while minimizing national security risk.

In this event, Representative Doris Matsui and Acting FCC Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel will offer their thoughts about the actions the United States should take to accelerate 5G in the country. They will also discuss the recent 5G Strategy published by the CSIS Working Group on Trust and Security in 5G Networks, which provides ideas and recommendations on how to speed infrastructure deployment, how to ensure supply chain security, and how to accelerate 5G use.

This report is made possible thanks to general support to CSIS.
