Network Speeds Poised For Giant Leap Forward In 5G

Hyper-fast internet speed for smartphones, drones, robots and cars is making its way into 2019 with 5G network technology.

As reported in the New York Times Monday, “The faster networks could help spread the use of artificial intelligence and other cutting-edge technologies.”

5G technology is about 20 times faster that our current 4G experience and most smartphone users will start to access 5G by the second quarter of this year.

“5G has the potential to join a very exclusive club — the handful of technologies throughout history that transform industries across every sector of the economy … redefining work, elevating living standards, and having a profound and sustained impact on our global economic growth,” said Ronan Dunne, executive vice president of Verizon Wireless in a statement.

Verizon launched the world’s first 5G network in October in certain parts of Houston, Sacramento, Los Angeles and Indianapolis. Much of the wide band for 5G is already done across the country; installation of 5G network equipment will be the next step.

Look for 5G services to appear at high traffic locations like stadiums and airports before it becomes more widely available in cities across the nation.― Boston Herald
