Accenture Strategy estimates U.S. telecom operators will spend up to $275B over seven years to build out the nation’s 5G networks and create significant contributions to the US economy, including up to three million jobs and about a $500B boost to the GDP.

This impact is in addition to the existing contributions from the wireless industry. Currently, estimates have the U.S. wireless industry supporting almost 5 million jobs, adding $475B in GDP, and creating about $1T in economic output.
