The first part of this chapter puts forward a brief background on technology. The second part examines the use of 5G in FCC and DOJ merger review. The third part analyzes the potential increased efficiency and decentralization of the traditional MNO and how this might impact future competition analyses. And the fourth part examines how 5G may be a factor in less traditional competitive analyses—for example in federal attempts to develop markets in underserved areas, in delivering education and telemedicine, and in increasing competition to minimize theoretic bottlenecks.
