NSF
"The National Science Foundation (NSF), an independent federal agency focused on funding science and engineering research, will soon be breaking ground on two Platforms for Advanced Wireless Research (PAWR) "living laboratories" in Salt Lake City and New York City to serve as city-wide next-generation wireless testbeds for 5G."

This is really interesting and exciting! It doesn't surprise me that the major carriers are helping to fund the project. It is really in their best interest to ensure the product is being thoroughly tested before they ever unroll it. Even if most customers would forgive an unsuccessful 5G rollout, a lot of customers would likely be willing to reconsider their carrierrs if one of the carriers has an amazing 5G launch. Especially if their own carrier didn't pull off the roll out so well.

Re: NSF Breaks Ground on 5G
@srufolo1 - After spending 4 years working for the University of Phoenix, my opinions on for-profit schools are a little on the low side. And honestly it was one of the reasons I had no problems leaving them when I finally did. The pay was great, I earned fast raises and had unheard of insurance at a time when a lot of Americans were really starting to struggle with both things. (I literally paid nothing to have my first son because the insurance covered 100% of all maternity needs - pre Obamacare.) But I also know people were getting in way too far over their heads for something that would never truly pay off. It was after I left that I knew I needed to find jobs that were either meaningful or neutral in the human effect sphere.

Re: NSF Breaks Ground on 5G
@elizabethv  According to what I just read about the University of Phoenix, it has been embroiled in a number of controversies since its founding in the '70s. One of the investigations did center on its marketing. I think it's mainly for online courses. It's sad and unconsciouable that the university basically duped those people.

Re: NSF Breaks Ground on 5G
@srufolo1 - Interesting, the University of Phoenix had degrees similar to that when I worked there, and I left almost 6 years ago now. The Tech and Health degree (can't for the life of me remember its actual name right now) was supposed to help people get into Medical Billing and Coding. Supposedly. That was how they low key marketed it. In reality it left far more people in a ton of debt with no degree. Even the ones that finished rarely found their way into Medical Billing and Coding, because the degree didn't actually give them the certifications needed to actually obtain a job in the field. Much less the real world experience a lot of employers asked for.

NSF Breaks Ground on 5G
Apparently combining tech training and a university degree is already happening. Just saw an ad online about DeVry University offering "tech-infused degrees in business, tech and health" to compete in todays digitally advanced world.

NSF Breaks Ground on 5G
"The group's goal is to expedite the market for 5G technology, provide practical training for students and future workers and help the US maintain its wireless leadership position."

Providing training for students and future workers is what is seriously needed in this country. Hopefully, the word gets out to students hoping to attain such training and skills.

NSF on 5G
This United States Government agency, founded in 1950 and mostly dedicated to research on science and engineering, really gets it! Wow. So happy to hear that New York City is on its list of 5G research. This is extremely exciting news!

5G and instrastructures
5G is greatly needed to provide real-time data for traffic accidents and roads and infrastructure. This will also be helpful for roads and bridges that are in need of repairs. Sensors can be installed to detect weaknesses and obstructions in roads and bridges which can be fixed much sooner to prevent catastrophes such as the bridge collapse in Atlanta Georgia in March 2017.

Emergency Response
It is great that one of their goals is to provide 5G for first-responders and surgeons which always need real-time data. Some doctors still use paper files for patients. This will be very helpful during natural disasters and emergencies that result in increased mobile usage (cell phones, laptops, and other portable devices).
