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. As in any deployment cycle, carriers tend to focus on areas with the greatest population density.This activity is happening across the country in all the top 25-30 markets. There’s significant investment currently to build networks that are 5G-ready. The equipment for 5G is not quite ready for mass deployment. We will most likely see significant amounts of equipment and devices that are 5G-enabled at the end of this year and in 2020.” Brown went on to discuss Crown’s competitors, deployment of 5G technology in rural areas and advice for other CEOs.
