5G is how CEO of wireless infrastructure company spells opportunity

Crown Castle CEO Jay Brown spoke with Texas Inc. about Crown’s progress in deploying fifth generation wireless technology. When asked how the rollout of 5G is going in Houston and other cities, Brown responded, “In Houston and other large cities, we’re focused on deploying 5G for all of the wireless carriers.

There’s significant investment currently to build networks that are 5G-ready. The equipment for 5G is not quite ready for mass deployment.
