From phones and computers, to smart homes, IoT, and autonomous cars — this is how 5G will impact our world
Super-fast phone data speeds. Self-driving cars. Smarter homes. Streaming movies, music, and games with zero lag. These are just a some of the new and improved technologies we can expect to see in our lives in the near future, and tying them all together is a next-generation network known as 5G.
