5G roadblock: labor



https://www.politico.com/news/2019/12/29/big-barrier-trump-5g-america-089883

An interesting article on the road to 5G that they need to about double 
the size of the workforce to roll it out. I expect that this affects 
some of you directly.

But one of its premises seems a little shaky to me: has the US ever led 
the pack rolling out new network technology? I always thought it was 
Japan and South Korea that were years ahead of us. In silicon valley and 
SF it's still very rare to see FTTH. I'm not sure why we would expect to 
get to 5G any faster than we normally do.
