5G Has Entered The Room
2021 is proving to be the year that 5G moves from buzzword to mainstream.
5G’s blazing-fast speeds and significantly lower latency technology is actually being put into practice this year in a real way as the country’s largest carriers build out their 5G networks and extend service into new cities and regions. Not to mention, 5G-capable smartphones, laptops, and tablets hit the market this year, so consumers and business users alike are getting to experience 5G service for themselves.
