Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Wash.; Hill Air Force Base, Utah; Naval Base San Diego, Calif.; and Marine Corps Logistics Base Albany, Ga., have all been selected “for their ability to provide streamlined access to site spectrum bands, mature fiber and wireless infrastructure, access to key facilities, support for new or improved infrastructure requirements, and the ability to conduct controlled experimentation with dynamic spectrum sharing,” according to the press release.

The Pentagon announced on Wednesday that it will kick off a “large-scale” effort to explore various applications of 5G technology in the coming months.
