The National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) released National Strategy to Secure 5G Implementation Plan, a governmentwide plan to lead the world in the development and deployment of secure and resilient fifth generation (5G) wireless communications infrastructure.

The implementation plan lists specific actions the federal government will take as well as lead agencies responsible for implementing each effort. The implementation plan also lists a number of potential new research and development (R&D) efforts and priorities that agencies may undertake relating to 5G. Despite the plan being released in the final days
of the Trump Administration, it is expected that 5G will continue to be a technology priority of the Biden Administration.
