White House invests in 5G Internet

Over the next few years, the amount of mobile devices connected to the Internet will increase significantly, which, coupled with the rapid development of multimedia services, will soon require much higher network bandwidth. The White House goes out to meet these needs and announces an investment in the 5G Internet.

Obama Administration has announced a new project called the Advanced Wireless Research Initiative, managed by the National Science Foundation (NSF), and has a budget of $ 400 million. This money is to be spent on the development of the new 5G mobile internet standard, which will be about 100 times faster than the current 4G technology. The project also envisages the creation of four test platforms spanning entire cities that will emerge over the next decade.

Over the next five years, NSF will donate $ 50 million to private sector companies that will build a new platform starting in 2017. In addition, over the next seven years, $ 350 million will fund research into 5G technology, from the conceptual phase to the real-world testing.

$ 6 million has already been donated to Intel to create a super fast network that will deliver data in less than a millisecond. Another
