该机构是应该要求该计划的参与者建立快速的5G网络,还是速度较慢的网络也可以?卫星提供商是否应该被允许从基金会获得资金?而4G是否应该被视为5G技术?

这些只是整个行业的公司都争论的一些话题,因为FCC正考虑如何分配一个大致为与新泽西州预算相同差额

以下是5G基金正讨论的主要问题:

1。网络应该有多快?
“委员会应为5G基金设定远高于35/3Mbit/s的速度目标,”向FCC写信给Verizon,指出该机构提出的35Mbit/s下载要求。“拟议的35/3Mbit/s速度目标,目前4G LTE速度范围内,到支持期结束时,将远远落后于5G网络能力。”

其他人不同意

“这种要求农村地区不可行,”写道农村无线协会(RWA),这是一个行业组织,代表着美国一些最小的无线网络运营商。“随着速度的增加,覆盖范围逐渐减小。为了切实可行地覆盖农村地区,支持对象将需要能够依靠传播来尽可能减少部署的站点数量。”

鉴于Verizon目前提供的5G平均下载速度几乎为500Mbit/s,Verizon这一主题上的立场并不令人惊讶,根据网络监控公司OpenSignal。然而,正如该公司指出的,由于使用毫米波(mmWave)频谱,Verizon的高速5G网络仅少数几个城市的部分地区可用。农村地区建设一个毫米波频段的5G网络,其成本将远远超过90亿美元

事实上,a谷歌研究指出,使用mmWave频谱中的5G技术,向72%的美国人口提供100Mbit/s的数据需要4000亿美元

2。卫星提供商能否从5G基金中获得资金?
“欧盟委员会不应通过禁止移动服务提供商使用能够支持延迟敏感移动服务的卫星技术来扼杀5G部署,例如SES的中地球轨道(MEO)卫星网络,“卫星提供商联邦通信委员会

The FCC wants to dole out $9 billion to finance the construction of 5G networks in rural areas of the US. Naturally, the devil is in the details.

Should the agency require participants in the program to build speedy 5G networks, or are slower networks OK too? Should satellite providers be allowed to receive money from the fund? And should 4G be considered a 5G technology?

These are just some of the topics that companies across the industry are debating as the FCC considers exactly how to allocate a fund that’s roughly the same size as the state of New Jersey’s budget shortfall.

Here are the top 5G Fund issues under discussion:

1. How fast should the networks be?
“The Commission should set the speed target for the 5G Fund well above 35/3Mbit/s,” wrote Verizon to the FCC, pointing to the agency’s proposed 35Mbit/s download requirement. “The proposed 35/3Mbit/s speed target, which is within the range of current 4G LTE speeds, will have fallen far behind 5G network capabilities by the end of the support term.”

Others disagreed.

“Such a requirement is not feasible in rural areas,” wrote the Rural Wireless Association (RWA), a trade group that represents some of the nation’s smallest wireless network operators. “As speeds increase, coverage diminishes. In order to feasibly cover rural areas, support recipients will need to be able to rely on propagation that minimizes the number of sites deployed.”

Verizon’s position on the topic doesn’t come as much of a surprise given that it currently offers an average 5G download speed of almost 500Mbit/s, according to network-monitoring company OpenSignal. However, as the firm points out, Verizon’s blazing-fast 5G network is only available in parts of a handful of cities due to the millimeter wave (mmWave) spectrum it’s using. A broad buildout of 5G in mmWave spectrum in rural areas would cost far, far more than $9 billion.

Indeed, a Google study indicated it would take $400 billion to deliver 100Mbit/s to 72% of the US population using 5G in mmWave spectrum.

2. Can satellite providers get money from the 5G Fund?
“The Commission should not stifle 5G deployment by barring mobile service providers from using satellite technologies that can support latency-sensitive mobile services, such as SES’s Medium Earth Orbit (MEO) satellite network,” the satellite provider argued to the FCC.
