In October 2020, the Federal Communications Commission established the 5G Fund for Rural America as another way to help bridge the digital divide between rural and urban/suburban areas.


The advent of 5G wireless connectivity has the potential to boost new applications and citizen experiences across all levels of government. It also represents a fundamental change in how networks operate – 5G networks are the first end-to-end implementation of software-defined networking, employing virtualization, artificial intelligence, and machine learning techniques.


Join us as government and industry leaders outline the impact of 5G on data collection and use, security, and network agility and resilience.
