5G Gets Real

But not really yet. Conversations are moving from hype to the practicalities of deployment, but there is still work to be done – and more collaboration needed – on standards, business models, spectrum and more.

Re: Here's a question - what does 5G mean to you? Hi so true just wish the company look at what the customer are asking for and not just a dreams. They have the best in the fiber optic service to the business and local customers, but never had the right people to push it.

Re: Here's a question - what does 5G mean to you? To me it means a close to 0 latency allowing it to become a real business enabler for IOT services.

What Verizon is calling as "5G" is really a 4.5G tech.

The real 5G requires a totally new system unrelated to LTE operating a totally new band above 24 Ghz. It is a fresh new wine in a new wineskin.

All forms of LTE derivates do not simply have the bandwidth needed to reach tens of gigabits/s.

Re: Here's a question - what does 5G mean to you? So  if Verizon plan to push there so called 5g, how long will the first testing cell phone come out to the public. They have too much on there plate. With the ability of there Fios dvr  to stream to any device. And there G90 that did the same thing as the fios mobile app that is working with no issue. I only see Verizon going back to the fiber optic service with the help of there wireless pushing the data network outside the range of what 5g can do. Most people will not spend the time to watch a movie on a stand cell phone when they have a 60' 4k TVs.

Re: Here's a question - what does 5G mean to you? Meet the real 28 Ghz 5G system. It has been named GK-5G. This system will be demoed in at the 2018 Pyeongchang Olympics and be proposed to the ITU as the global 5G standard at ITU WRC-19.

Notice how small the base stations and receiver antennas are already, and it works in moving vehicles at 2 km range too.

Re: Here's a question - what does 5G mean to you? The 3GPP will put forth the required speeds and specs for 5G, and the NGMN has the baseline requirements for it. But -- as a consumer -- to me it means ubiquitious broadband with no coverage gaps and speeds fast enough for any type of video streaming. We don't have either today with LTE, so it should be a big change, although I expect it will be incremental in some places, at least at first.
