The US Federal Communications Commission will circulate a proposal to start 5G wireless proceedings

The US Federal Communications Commission‘s chairman Tom Wheeler will circulate a proposal to kick off 5G wireless proceedings. If passed, the commission will begin to identify and open up swaths of high-band spectrum, which is capable of delivering data at much higher speeds than what’s currently used for 4G and LTE. The U.S. Federal Communications Commission will vote July 14 on new rules to identify and open spectrum for next-generation high-speed 5G wireless applications.  If it passes, the commission will then move toward opening up spectrum. The first 5G deployments are expected to be ready for 2020. More info.
