EV 5G Infrastructure Costs $850 Billion
The cost to build a complete electric vehicle infrastructure including charging stations, EV repair technician job training, home electric charging upgrades and autonomous vehicle apps on a 5G network also enabling Internet of Things (IoT) will cost the U.S. nearly $850 Billion reports BrightNovaMedia.com. And the clocks ticking, as GM and Ford announced their producing only all-electric-vehicles by 2035, and no more gas or diesel powered vehicles.
An economic transformation is necessary now for America's infrastructure and transportation systems in order to ensure success. This means vehicle repair technicians will all have to be certified and trained to become software programmers needed to maintain electric vehicles. All highways, roads and bridges will be outfitted with nodes that communicate with passing electric vehicles. All fueling stations will need to convert to EV charging stations which all for longer wait times. Geographically clustered 5G nodes must be arrayed at shorter distances ubiquitously to ensure signal strength. Residential homes must be upgraded to fast charge 200 and 600 volts capable of handling multiple electric vehicles for rapid charge requirements. The cost of upgrading residential homes to fast charge will likely be tax deductible. New industries such as EV repair, residential and commercial technology installation will become prevalent. On-average, EV repair tech salary is $85,000 annually.
Further, the United States must invest in NextGen air traffic control systems and implementation innovative new airspace technologies and procedures to facilitate robust economic growth activity. While rail systems must be upgraded to 5G broadband Future Railway Mobile Communication System (FRMCS) to improve safety, efficiency and develop new rail network connections throughout America such as Nashville to Atlanta and the like.
Internet of Things (IoT)
The so called Internet of Things (IoT) based on 5G infrastructure networks has significant competitive economic impacts in transportation and manufacturing process for tracking components through the supply chain and right through to an end product that has connectivity such as smart home appliances, AI robots and even indoor farming apps.
EV Charging Stations
The number of electric vehicles sold in the United States will exceed 68 million by 2032 reports BrightNovaMedia.com. And it is expected that nearly 45 million EV charging stations will be installed either public space, private business or residential by 2036.
On-average, the expected annual salary for EV technicians is $85,000 or more. Several organizations now offers EV certification training programs for those interested in pursuing a fast growing career path. Checkout education programs that offer EV certification below.
EV Reliability ... A key promise of electric car ownership is that a simpler design provides improved reliability, in addition to energy efficiency. Recently, a Consumer Reports study showed that electric vehicles (EVs) generally cost less to repair and maintain than their gasoline powered counterparts. However, CR’s latest reliability survey reveals that some new electric cars have significant problems that will be covered under warranty.
These latest results mirror what we’ve known for a long time : All-new cars and new technology are prone to growing pains. CR data have consistently shown that first-year models tend to be less reliable than ones that have been on the market for a few years. EVs are no exception, although specific electric components, such as batteries and drivetrains, are often not the issue. Checkout new EV available in 2021 below ...

What About 6G ...
Several developed countries such as Finland, Germany, China, England and France are rapidly implementing 5G features, while upgrading the economy and infrastructure which boosts their competitive position in comparison to the United States dated legacy systems.
Most of the current research around the sixth generation of wireless tech focuses on transmitting data through ultra-high frequencies, above the current ranges of 5G. Right now 5G can go up to 100 GHz, but generally speaking, 5G doesn't go above 39 GHz for practical use. Researchers believe that they will be able to practically and efficiently transmit data in the hundreds of GHz or terahertz range in the coming years, which essentially means that data will be able to be communicated and streamed faster than ever before. A good way of understanding this is, the higher the frequency, the more peaks and troughs in a wave, which carry more data, meaning higher speed data transfer.
While ultra-high frequency transmission sounds fantastic in theory, scientists don't exactly have the "how" nailed down yet. There currently aren't semiconductors that can use terahertz frequencies. The problem is that in this ultra-high range that current processors can't interpret the amount of data fast enough.
It is expected that 6G could deliver mind boggling speeds of 1TB per second, enough to download 142 hours of Netflix movies in one second. Speeds that fast could not only enhance the technology expected to emerge from 5G — such as autonomous cars and smart cities — but may also allow sci-fi applications like the integration of our brains with computers and sensory interfaces that feel and look just like real life reports BrightNovaMedia.com.
Data shows that a significant investment by the U.S., as outlined in President Biden's $2T infrastructure plan is a smart investment now. A targeted investment approach should be used to keep America competitive in the new digital global eCommerce race ahead.
As a consumer new technologies like 5G / 6G and electric vehicles (EV) and the like, always take a few years to flush out the reliability issues and develop smart support systems and manufacturing capabilities in order to deliver lower costs for consumers.
Therefore, we suggest using a-go-slow approach to adopting EVs and 5G smart phones etc. coming in 2022. The tremendous new opportunities and new industries created as a by-product is exciting. But we suggest gradually upgrading over the next 3-5 years, as these exciting new technology and robust economic components become mainstream changing way business is done and our everyday lifestyles.
