WASHINGTON, DC – Today, 5G Action Now launched a new targeted digital ad campaign highlighting the dangers of China winning the race to 5G and the need for the United States to keep its foot on the gas following Chairman Pai’s announcement last week of a late-2020 public auction of the C-band spectrum.

The paid digital ads feature President Trump, Secretary Pompeo, Attorney General Barr, and Chairman Pai commenting on the dangers posed by China winning the race to 5G and the need for the United States to get there first.

“Chairman Pai’s announcement last week of his plan for a late-2020 public auction of the C-Band spectrum represents a significant leap forward for the United States catching and eventually passing China in the race for full 5G deployment and development,” said 5G Action Now Spokesperson Ian Prior. “But now is not the time to take the foot off the gas; 5G Action Now will continue to support the Trump Administration and Chairman Pai to ensure that the United States is the global leader in 5G technology.”

The ads (30 second and 60 second), which can be viewed below, will be targeted to influencers in Washington D.C. and will run for several weeks.
