FreedomWorks Statement in Response to Trump Administration’s Decision to Implement 5G FAST Plan

WASHINGTON, D.C. — In response to the Trump Administration’s decision to streamline the regulatory process in order to empower the private sector on 5G deployment, Ken Cuccinelli, FreedomWorks Foundation Director of the Regulatory Action Center, commented:

“We applaud President Trump and National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow for standing by the incredibly strong team of FCC Commissioners this administration has assembled, including Chairman Ajit Pai. The work this administration’s FCC has done to ensure America remains the world leader in internet and telecommunications technology will produce incalculable benefits for our economy for decades to come.

“While there were many ideas about a path forward on 5G, this administration deserves all the credit in the world for recognizing that the best way to outpace rivals like China is not to copy them, but do what America does best: unleash our unbeatable private sector.”
