It’s no secret that 2020 was supposed to be the year of 5G. But the lockdowns threw a wrench into the timeline.
Despite the events of the year, 5G is still a war that hasn’t been won between the United States and China.
And it’s intensified over the last few weeks.
5G is the key to unlocking the technology of the future. It’s improved speed and low latency will make the difference for artificial intelligence, telemedicine and self-driving cars.
Think about how long it takes you to load a file from your phone on 4G. That’s not how long you want your self-driving car to take to respond.
5G has the capability to use frequencies that are higher and more directional than those used by 4G. Essentially 4G uses frequencies below 6GHz and its towers send data all over which can be a waste of power and energy. The higher frequencies give the ability to support fates data without the interference of other wireless signals.
Even if you just look at it from a consumer standpoint, 5G will change the way we can interact with our mobile devices. Over the last year along, video traffic grew over 75%. YouTube, Tik Tok, Facebook live…videos are ingrained into our everyday life.
Add in the fact that more and more people are working from home. That means video conferences via Teams, Zoom, Google. We need that extra capacity for mobile data traffic.
If You’re Not First You’re Last
As with anything in technology, it’s all about being the first to market. I mentioned above, it’s a close race between China and the US. Although it’s a race it’s almost two very different races.
China’s 5G aspirations are driven by the Made in China 2025 initiative.
This transition away from commodity goods into a supplier of high-tech products is an effort to increase its global power. Because this push is from the government, it can use its authority to get the equipment installed.
In the US, 5G employment is driven entirely by the private sector.
Here, cities and localities can slow the process as regulations get challenged in court. Each of the big three wireless carriers, AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile, are working to deploy 5G. And all of them noted the delays in their first-quarter earnings calls.
Former AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson said on the most recent call "Our 5G deployment continues, although we continue to navigate the workforce and permitting delays." That pretty much sums up the current situation.
The infrastructure has to come first…and it is…slowly, but surely.
Grab a piece of paper and pen to write this down…
Because you’re about to see the name and ticker symbol of the ONLY 5G STOCK every investor should own.
You can get the name and ticker of this company right here, no strings attached. But you better act fast…
Because the Federal Communications Commission, the government agency in charge of 5G, just scheduled a major announcement that would send shares soaring once announced.

Even Apple just announced that its 5G phone launch will be delayed past September. This is sure to negatively impact the earnings for both apple and mobile processor Qualcomm. And I can’t help but wonder if we might see some Apply elitists switch for fear of being left behind.
Significant adoption of 5G will probably take the next five years. We’ve never said it’s going to happen overnight, and don’t think it should. With critical technologies such as self-driving cars and healthcare monitoring using 5G, network security is going to be especially crucial.
Every day something new is emerging with 5G as industries adopt this new technology.
I’m monitoring these industries looking for the best opportunities.
But the lockdowns created great buying opportunities in some of my favorite 5G companies.
I’ve been on top of 5G providing readers big returns in Wealthy Tech Investor.
Everything ties back into 5G…it's the center to the future of tech.
Earlier today, I released my newest 5G mega pick in the August issue of WealthyTech Investor.
I can’t reveal the pick if you're not a member, but I can give you a hint:
This company wants you to be able to search for anything and everything.
And it’s not Google, Bing, or Yahoo.
To your prosperity,
