As a reserved issue, 5G policy and strategy was initiated by the UK Government's 5G strategy in March 2017 and updated in December 2017, alongside a competitive challenge fund - the 5G Testbeds and Trials Programme. In July 2018, the UK Government's ambitions were reaffirmed in its Future Telecoms Infrastructure Review (FTIR), which set the goal of the UK being a world leader in 5G, making it a UK Government priority to promote investment and innovation with an aim for the majority of the population to have 5G by 2027.
However, the FTIR is focused on the deployment of full fibre connectivity and the Scottish Government believes that there is now a requirement to show leadership at a national level by creating a supportive policy framework to facilitate the development and deployment of 5G to meet the 2027 ambition.
But without umbrella 5G deployment across all of Scotland, the country will not reap the potential economic gains that 5G can deliver. As telecommunications is legislated for and regulated at a UK level, while mobile network rollout is commercially led, we believe that Scotland cannot wait for action at a UK level any longer. To avoid repetition of the unsatisfactory deployments of the past, we are clear that more needs to be done at a Scottish level - with appropriate leadership - to ensure that 5G is delivered for all of Scotland.
We want to ensure that Scotland reaps the benefits of being a cyber resilient nation within a 5G landscape. We will ensure our work on 5G is integrated with cyber security research with the aim of promoting world leading innovation in the cyber security sector.
Today, President Biden will sign into law the bipartisan CHIPS and Science Act of 2022, which will build on this progress, making historic investments that will poise U.S. workers, communities, and businesses to win the race for the 21st century. It will strengthen American manufacturing, supply chains, and national security, and invest in research and development, science and technology, and the workforce of the future to keep the United States the leader in the industries of tomorrow, including nanotechnology, clean energy, quantum computing, and artificial intelligence. The CHIPS and Science Act makes the smart investments so that Americans can compete in and win the future.
The CHIPS and Science Act will establish a technology, innovation, and partnerships directorate at the National Science Foundation (NSF) to focus on fields like semiconductors and advanced computing, advanced communications technology, advanced energy technologies, quantum information technologies, and biotechnology. It will strengthen commercialization of research and technology, ensuring that what is invented in America is made in America. The Act will also reauthorize and expand fundamental and use-inspired research at the Department of Energy Office of Science and the National Institute of Standards and Technology to sustain U.S. leadership in the sciences and engineering as the engine for American innovation.

Colorado is one of the most centrally located areas of the United States and is a national leader in adopting clean energy technologies. The state has one of the highest per capita concentrations of federal science, research, and engineering facilities in the US, including NREL.
