Policy Issues for Telecom Transformation

January 13, 2022 • 3:30 – 4:30 pm EST

High speed networks are the key to future economic growth in the U.S. The transition to 5G and 6G, however, creates new challenges for policymakers in supply chain, spectrum, and infrastructure. To fully capture the benefits to come from this transition, the U.S. needs to act on the significant changes brought, for example, by edge computing or cloud technologies. Regulatory positions in these areas will have long-lasting effects. Policymakers need to address some of the unavoidable legislative questions that surround industrial policy for semiconductors, spectrum allocation processes, or international cooperation.

Join CSIS for an event on the policy and legislative questions surrounding the transition to 5G/6G featuring opening remarks from Representative Mike Doyle (D-PA). His remarks will be followed by a panel discussion.

This event is done in collaboration with the Information Technology Industry Council (ITI).
