The American 5G Race—A Conversation With Declan Ganley
Smart cities, innovations in medicine, and next-generation defense technologies could all be realized through 5G internet.
But wireless entrepreneur Declan Ganley says the United States is losing the 5G race to communist China, and largely has itself to blame.
Ganley’s Rivada Networks wants to eliminate barriers to entering the wholesale 5G market by allowing anyone—smaller carriers, entire industries, even individual businesses—to buy 5G bandwidth through a new 24/7 marketplace.
Today’s one-off auctions only benefit a handful of big corporations with deep pockets, he says. And those corporations are using this advantage to crowd out competition, stifle innovation, and keep the price of internet high.
