Mobile World Congress Americas (MWCA) took place in Los Angeles from Oct 22-24, 2019 with nearly 22,000 attendees. With 5G being front and center, the US is off to a great start with all top four operators having deployed 5G networks by midyear 2019. This year is also the first time where the North American operator capex investments in 5G have surpassed those of 4G, according to GSMA.
Los Angeles Mayor, Eric Garcetti, reported that LA is the third largest metropolitan economy in the world after Tokyo and NYC, and the #1 digital city in America citing several examples including mobile 311 service where citizens can communicate their needs with the government, ShakeAltertLA – an earthquake alert app, and 19 million trips already taken on electric scooters.
