5G

There has been some noise about 5G, but nowhere near enough relative to how explosive and disruptive this technology is going to be.

5G is the next iteration of cell phone 'network", and promises speeds in excess of 1 gig (1,000+ mbps), dramatically faster than what most consumers and businesses have available to them today.

 

The early moves will be with consumers ... Verizon is already working on a home internet offering with Apple that will include high speed 5G internet and an Apple TV for streaming content.  It won't take much for them to disrupt the cable monopoly's high prices and limited service, and I think by the end of 2019 5G is going to be driving "cord cutters" and transforming consumer internet and media services.   Businesses will follow as lower prices and high speeds pressure business broadband pricing.

2019 will be the year of 5G !
