5G Technology Excites, Worries US Lawmakers
Wednesday, 15 May 2019 23:34 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

Powerful U.S. lawmakers who help shape the legal framework for America's technological advances on Tuesday admitted ignorance and confusion about the highly-anticipated broadband system already being deployed in parts of the world.

"I actually know very little about 5G," said Dianne Feinstein of California, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee.

"Today, we're going to talk about something that I'm by no means an expert on," the panel's chairman, South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, said at a hearing where America's top cybersecurity officials testified on 5G's promise and looming perils.

"It's really hard for people to get their heads around what we're talking about here," Republican Sen. Ben Sasse of Nebraska said. "First of all, what is it?"

Witnesses said the fifth generation of wireless technology, or 5G, will bring eye-popping data transmission capacity and spur a new age of digital device connectivity that will revolutionize many people's daily lives, as well as America's economic output.
