The Trump administration today said it has no plans to build a 5G wireless network that might be run by the government. Unnamed White House officials confirmed the administration's position to Recode. The White House was forced to respond after a memo unearthed by Axios suggested Trump had been advised to create a single, nationwide 5G network to protect national security. Recode's sources noted that the memo in question was dated and indicated it had only been proposed by a staff member; the idea was never considered seriously. All five commissioners at the FCC — the agency in charge of managing communications services in the U.S. — decried the idea as wrong-headed.
