The Battle Between States And Cities To Control 5G

Thanks to carrier lobbying, twenty states have already passed legislation to strip their cities of the power to regulate 5G rollouts. Cities are fighting  back with lawsuits to restore local control and ability to set fees and address health concerns. A Technocrat state Senator in Texas says, “We should keep government out of the way of technology and let technology get us all there.”

4th Quarter 2018: Verizon Rolling Out 5G to Sacramento, Los Angeles

5G is the holy grail of Technocracy because a) it will completely light up the Internet of Everything and b) it will permit instant collection of virtually all data on earth. Verizon intends to dominate in the U.S., and is rolling out city-wide systems in Los Angeles and Sacramento by 4th quarter 2018. Public consumption will lag until consumer devices are available to take advantage of the higher speed. This is truly disruptive technology and will obsolete cable providers. For instance, my 100MBS Cox service sports a 20-25 ms latency; 5G will deliver 1000MBS with 1 ms latency.
