By now you've heard all about the potential of 5G.
But a little known government process last month shows just how big it could be.
And one of the best 5G stocks today could be collecting a slice of the entire industry's growth.
Cellphones, garage door openers, police scanners, broadcast TV, and Navy radar systems all have one thing in common. They use one of the scarcest resources on the planet… spectrum.
On top of that, everyone is using it more than ever as we stream movies from our phones or video chat with a friend or relative across the country.
5G is coming, and it's coming fast.
It's almost impossible to open any financial website, newspaper, or magazine without coming across yet another story about 5G.
It's being called the fourth industrial revolution and is expected to change our lives in a significant fashion.
We will be able to use lightning-fast data to transform the way we do business and the way we live out daily lives.
And the best way to get a slice of this is through cell tower REITs.
These companies are specifically structured to pass income directly to their shareholders, which gives you reliable income thanks to 5G.
Life has changed significantly in the face of the coronavirus pandemic, and the need to adapt has created a new normal.

On April 1, T-Mobile US Inc. closed its acquisition of Sprint, and with that, the whole wireless landscape in the United States changed.
This merger will make 5G more accessible to millions of people at a time when video conferencing, streaming, and Internet usage is skyrocketing.
And it did this with one simple move – access to spectrum.
Without getting too technical and just giving you the most important details, there are three different kinds of spectrum: low-band, mid-band, and millimeter wave (mmWave).
Every carrier uses a different combination to provide wireless signals to their customers, and each type of spectrum offers different tradeoffs, which range from faster speeds to better coverage.
In this case, T-Mobile had mostly slow low-bands with better coverage and only a limited presence in the fast mmWave spectrum.
Combined with T-Mobile, Sprint was able to fill the gaps with its own mid-band and mmWave spectrum coverage, creating better 5G capabilities for everyone on its network.
But that's just part of the story.
This merger is creating a potential profit opportunity in 5G that'd you only know about by diving into the details about the merger… Full Story

Don't get me wrong; the 5G story is huge.
Probably the most significant technological innovation to come to America – and the world – in our lifetimes thus far.

The 10-year bond hovered at 1.53% – a pittance for investors who are looking out on a decade horizon.
The option of gold – which doesn't pay a yield – also isn't the most attractive option for anyone seeking income.
