What a Nationalized 5G Network Would Look Like

FCC chief opposes Trump administration 5G network plan

Their answers follow an Axios report detailing a National Security Council memo and PowerPoint which propose a nationalized wireless broadband network created to guard against state-sponsored hacks by China.

Even if Trump officials are considering moving forward with the plan, they would likely face strong resistance from other arms of the government.

You can find the National Security Council's proposal to nationalize the 5G wireless infrastructure deck here.

In countries such as Japan and South Korea, testing of 5G networks is under way.

Apart from FCC chairman Pai, three of remaining four FCC commissioners also said on Monday that they opposed nationalizing the 5G network, while the fourth expressed skepticism.

The documents framed the plan in national security terms with one memo emphasizing it was crucial to build a network that would be safe from interference from the Chinese government.

But he did say government should have a roll in 5G. The report claimed that now there is some debate over whether the government pays for and owns the network, or whether carriers will be asked to form a consortium and build the network. Axios Chief Technology Correspondent Ina Fried, and The Verge Reporter Chaim Gartenberg explain what a 5G network would look like.

Participants in an October 2017 workshop held by the suggested that Chinese access to US networks and digital technology could strengthen that country's own cyber defenses while "sharpening its cyberattack potential" against USA infrastructure. "China has achieved a dominant position in the manufacture and operation of network infrastructure", reads one slide, "China is the dominant malicious actor in the Information Domain".

Wireless communication infrastructure is usually built by private companies, like Verizon and AT&T. An unnamed source reportedly told the news outlet that the document is now outdated that that there's a newer version that's neutral regarding whether or not the federal government should construct and own the 5G network. But the idea that it would, or could, build a competitive 5G network in the manner suggested has no basis in reality. They did confirm that their reasoning for a government-owned 5G network was to stop China's threat to United States cyber and economic security.

The concept does seem a little out of left field, given that mobile carriers have already been working on deploying their own 5G networks for some time.

Neither the White House nor the National Security Council had responded to questions as to whether anyone at the FCC had been consulted in any way during the proposal's development. The document is "not a reflection of some imminent, major policy announcement - and probably might never be".

Not everyone is on board with the proposed idea, including Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai.

"There is nothing that would slam the breaks more quickly on our hard-won momentum to be the leader in the global race for 5G network deployment more quickly than the federal government stepping-in to build those networks", said USTelecom President Jonathan Spalter.
