AT&T: Company to Begin Testing 5G Wireless Services
A new wave of mobile technology is on its way, and will bring drastic change.
On February 12th AT&T, America’s second-largest mobile operator, said it would begin testing whether prototype 5G circuitry works indoors. This follows similar news in September from Verizon, the number one. Although the previous batch, collectively called “Fourth Generation”, or “4G”, is still being rolled out in many countries.
AT&T describes 5G Wireless Services as-
It expects the service to be 10 to 100 times faster than the current average for 4G LTE data speeds. The 5G wireless service network is expected to roll out across providers in 2020.”
While these tech giants are busy in technovation, some tech guru’s thinks- The path to the 5G wireless services, paradise will not be smooth. It is not only the usual telecoms suspects who will want a say in this mother of all networks. Media companies will want priority to be given to generous bandwidth. So they can stream films with ever higher resolution. Most IoT firms will not need much bandwidth, but will want their sensors to run on one set of batteries for years. So, they will want the 5G standard to put a premium on low power consumption. Online gaming firms will worry about latency: players will complain if it is too high.
