5G On the Way

Get ready for faster broadband coverage.  Engineers at the University of Sussex and collaborators around the telecom industry have successfully tested the so-called “5G” mobile broadband signals, which have data rates that are 20 times faster than the 4G systems introduced in the U.S. market a decade ago.  The first 5G coverage could be available as early as next year in the U.S. marketplace, and roughly a year later in Europe and elsewhere.
