WASHINGTON — U.S. Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.), chairman of the Commerce Committee’s Subcommittee on Communications, Technology, Innovation, and the Internet, today discussed the effort to make 5G a reality in the United States. Last Friday, Thune was in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, to unveil the city’s first 5G cells.

Thune has been a leader in the race to make 5G a reality, authoring the MOBILE NOW Act, which was signed into law in 2018, and the bipartisan STREAMLINE Small Cell Deployment Act, legislation he reintroduced in June.

    What are the chances of 5G coming to rural SD? Aren’t there areas with 0G still? What makes us think Verizon will roll out 5G to places they don’t currently have service?

    Does Mr. Thune not understand that the Five Gs crank up the tin-foil hatters to a number bigger than the dial goes?
