5G is a cellular network that's supposed to be super fast -- the next evolution in mobile technology. President Trump promised to bring broadband internet through 5G networks to rural America. Recently, a bipartisan group of politicians introduced a bill meant to protect 5G from national security threats. Karl Rove has also gotten involved with the Department of Defense’s use of 5G.
