Delivering anytime, anywhere access and information is one of the driving trends of our time. And 5G is the platform technology for game-changing innovations, enabling everything from digital health to smart cities to self-driving cars.

5G, which uses a wider array of spectrum bands, is the fifth generation of cellular network technology and is a game changer in mobile internet connectivity. 5G will transform our economy. 

The Consumer Technology Association (CTA)® is committed to addressing the demands of our connected world and facilitating discussions with Congress and government agencies, including the Federal Communications Commission, about building our 5G infrastructure and increasing commercial access to spectrum. 

This includes advocating for fair, flexible government policies that underscore our nation’s status as bastion of innovation.
