5G Networks Coming As U.S. Priority Beat The Odds: $26 Billion Mega-Merger, U.S.-China Tensions, Delayed 5G SmartPhones And COVID-19 Lockdowns


5G networks are coming as a priority to the U.S. and its allies globally despite it all: the $26 Billion T-Mobile US (NASDAQ: TMUS)-Sprint merger with Dish Network (NASDAQ: DISH), delayed Apple 5G iPhones, U.S.-China Huawei 5G supplier tensions and the COVID-19 lockdowns internationally. U.S. legislators on both sides of the aisle are making building nationwide 5G networks in the U.S. a key issue in post-coronavirus America.

5G Networks Coming As U.S. Priority Beat The Odds: $26 Billion Mega-Merger, U.S.-China Tensions, Delayed 5G SmartPhones And COVID-19 Lockdowns

5G networks are coming despite numerous events that appear to slow them — in fact, the nationwide lockdowns have propelled 5G to the top of the list for the Congressional financing round of infrastructure this year. Beating all the odds, 5G networks are here in a small way. But the lockdowns served to make Americans want the quicker speed, graphics and features that 5G can bring home in the form of autonomous vehicles in the future. So national 5G networks are on the way.

5G beat these odds:

  • The lockdown from COVID-19 in the U.S. has accelerated computer internet services such as online schooling, telemedicine and sites such as Facebook, Zoom, Snap, and others. Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle agree that a faster internet is vital to America’s future. Lockdowns may have slowed the installation of 5G networks — but at the same time now make 5G networks a priority in Congress and the White House in the fear future.
  • The $26 billion mega merger between T-Mobile US (NASDAQ: TMUS)-Sprint appointed Dish Network (NASDAQ: DISH) as a provider to establish a 5G network as part of the approval. This third 5G network requirement may have delayed 5G. Dish Network now says in a COVID-19 environment it may be unable to raise the projected $10 billion it says it needs to deliver a 5G network to 70% of America by 2023 — including rural markets — that it had promised. But 5G is proceeding anyway.
  • Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) is delaying its 5G capable iPhones reportedly until November of this year because of production problems. It will introduce four new iPhone models then, some of which will have 5G. Lockdowns have slowed production and interfered with supply lines, but these iPhones are coming. Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) may have shuttered its stores in many locations, but the phones will sell online.
  • S.-China tensions due to security concerns and the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak are delaying the installation of 5G network infrastructure in several countries. But the U.S. and U.K. are determined to build 5G with domestic suppliers without China’s Huawei. Huawei, a giant in China’s telecom industry, reported slower sales gains in its most recent quarter.

This myriad of issues that slow down 5G network installation in the U.S. would appear to present hurdles that cannot be overcome. 5G may still be in its infancy, located in only a few blocks of scattered urban markets today, but it is coming as a top priority. With the financial backing of the U.S. Congress, national 5G networks will be a reality — beating all these odds. 5G Networks Coming As U.S. Priority Beat The Odds: $26 Billion Mega-Merger, U.S.-China Tensions, Delayed 5G SmartPhones And COVID-19 Lockdowns.

“It’s Not A Luxury — It’s A Necessity”

“Having affordable broadband — it’s not a luxury, it’s a necessity,” said Rep. Mike Doyle (D, Pa.), reflecting the feeling of his current lawmakers. “Broadband infrastructure has to be one of the key elements to that, and this pandemic has brought that right to the forefront.” As chairman of the House Communications and Technology Subcommittee, he is reflecting the mood of both Democrats and Republicans. Now the building in ernest of 5G networks nationally is a reality.
