When 5G was formally announced in 2018, it came with promises of changing the face of wireless connectivity – those promises are finally being realized. Around the world, wireless carriers are switching on functionality and, in both the U.S. and the UK, all major vendors have enabled it. But for now, 5G is only available in major urban areas, such as London, Edinburgh, New York and San Francisco. Though it is not generally available yet, it continues to be rolled out.
Most of the public visibility that 5G gets is from the consumer space – we all want to download funny/cute animal videos faster – but this is only one of many possible use cases.
