Trump Urges New Technology Development
President Trump recently urged new advances in mobile technology in a pair of tweets.
According to Town Hall:

President Donald Trump tweeted Thursday that he wants the United States to adopt 5G or 6G technology.

5G and 6G stand for fifth and sixth-generation mobile connectivity. We already live in a 4G world, allowing us to quickly download music and surf the web. According to Imnovation Hub, countries like Spain have smartphones that, on average, have transmission speeds of 21 Mbps.

“5G connection speed will manage to achieve over 10 Gbps,” Imnovation Hub wrote. “That is to say, between 100 and 1000 times faster, making it possible to download, for example, a HD movie in 10 seconds.” 

The articles states that 5G technology could allow us to create a functioning internet-based ecosystem in our everyday lives, as well as bring “smart cities” into reality.

It is unclear what, if anything, President Trump will do to incentivize the new technology.
