Who stands to profit most from the launch of commercial 5G networks?
AT&T and Verizon are now both saying that the earliest commercial mobile 5G devices will arrive "late in 2018." Smartphones are expected in the first half of 2019. So, we're asking, will you be an early adopter of mobile 5G?
Fixed 5G services in the US – and maybe beyond – could be the hot new thing as soon as 2018. Will this form of broadband replace cable, or maybe get you gigabit connectivity where it was never available before?
True mobile 5G networks could now start to arrive in 2019. What do you expect to see in terms of initial 5G devices?
There's no question that 5G networks will be both different from previous wireless networks, and challenging and expensive to deploy. But which element will cost the most to get done?
There's something of a race going on to develop a working 5G specification that will be accepted by the wider industry. Typically, with 2G, 3G and 4G, the 3GPP has taken the lead in this work, but 5G could be a little different. So, what organization do you think is taking the reins in the 5G horse-race?
There's already a lot of pressure in the industry to get a head start on 5G. So when do you realistically think commercial 5G service will be available?
What is the largest potential obstacle to the deployment of 5G networks at this early stage?
With initial 5G testing starting this year, operators and vendors are mostly looking at commercial 5G deployment in 2020. A number of countries are in the running to be the first to roll out 5G: which do you think will be first?
The speed and power of 5G wireless connectivity could change our lives as much as the Internet or the advent of the cellphone. But which application do you expect will first spark mass market interest in early 5G services?
