Trump campaign chief: U.S. needs a single, private 5G network

Brad Parscale, President Trump's 2020 campaign manager, thinks that a single, private, nationwide 5G network is the best way to boost mobile speeds and eliminate spotty service.

Why it matters: Parscale tweeted that "It is time for America to have a single 5G network for all carriers." This raised questions of whether an early White House proposal to nationalize a U.S. 5G network, which was largely panned by the industry and telecom regulators, was again getting traction inside the administration. Parscale clarified that it was his personal opinion.
