Assessing the Competitive Impact of Next Generation Mobile Networks
A week doesn’t go by without the term “5G” showing up in business and technology headlines here and abroad. Why the fascination among so many with all things 5G? If technologists can be believed, 5G broadband networks will revolutionize how we communicate, do business, become educated, participate in the political process and more. But will the new networks have a positive competitive effect on consumer broadband services? Will these 5G networks open up new avenues of competition between and among different parts of the Internet ecosystem?
Please join the Center for Business and Public Policy at Georgetown University’s School of Continuing Studies on July 23, 2019 to hear several experts explore these and other questions stemming from the promise of 5G technology. Our speakers will discuss issues like big data, DNS over http, consumer privacy protections, upcoming spectrum allocations and the regulatory climate for transactions across verticals.
