"We can not allow any other country to outcompete the United States in this powerful industry of the future", Trump said in the White House Roosevelt Room, flanked by a group of telecommunications tower climbers and farmers.

The Federal Communications Commission said Friday that it would hold the largest auction in USA history, of 3,400 megahertz, to boost wireless companies' networks.

Pai responded to the criticism telling Yahoo Finance he believes America is leading the 5G race and he hopes "to move forward in a bipartisan way to maintain that American leadership". "All kinds of industries, from agriculture to transportation to health care, will be transformed". The president boasted that by the end of the year, 92 markets in the USA will support 5G compared to 48 in South Korea.

Democrats cast the announcement by Pai, a Republican appointed by Trump, as another in a series of inadequate or counter-productive steps.

The Republican administration has also been warning other countries against adopting 5G systems from Chinese telecommunications company Huawei Technologies Co Ltd, citing security concerns.

"The White House has yet to offer a workable plan for US leadership", Rosenworcel said. Other countries have chosen frequencies that carry signals farther and are moving ahead, she said. Starting on December 10th, carriers will be allowed to bid on "3,400MHz of Upper 37 GHz, 39GHz, and 47 GHz Bands". Verizon recently flipped the switch on mobile 5G in Chicago and Minneapolis, and the network can be accessed using the Moto Z3 with the 5G Moto Mod. T-Mobile and Sprint will launch their 5G services later this year.

He also announced that the FCC would create a $20 billion program to bring more wireless and digital infrastructure to rural communities.

According to the FCC, this money will come from the Universal Service Fund. Lawmakers from poorly-connected farm states have become increasingly insistent on catching up to more-populated areas.

"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". A formal plan didn't emerge.

"As you probably heard, we had another alternative of doing it, that would be through government investment, and leading through the government, we don't want to do that because it won't be almost as good, almost as fast", Trump said.

The U.S.is jockeying for a position with China over 5G.

"There are proposals to free some of it for fixed wireless, and the mobile industry wants it for 5G", Brown said.

Trump emphasized that the success of 5G networks would be up to private companies, not the government. The Trump administration has pressed allies to keep Huawei gear out of their networks.
