5G wireless technology is a reality that will be upon us soon. 5G will change the way we interact with technology. But what does that mean for you?

Speed

5G is short for fifth-generation wireless. Did you know that 5G is expected to deliver data 100 times faster than any current mobile technology? This matters to you because as our world becomes more technologically integrated with virtual reality, telemedicine, self-driving cars, and more, 5G speeds will be essential to keeping up with the growing tech influences in our society.

Pizza and 5G

The new cell sites that will power 5G will be about the size of pizza boxes. And 5G is expected to be more reliable. Huge amounts of money will be invested in installing and maintaining the pizza box-sized small cells to transmit 5G wireless signals and form the backbone of next-generation networks. This might even mean faster delivery of pizza right to your door!

Show me the $$$

America’s wireless companies are ready to invest $275 billion into building 5G network infrastructure. According to Accenture, this will create three million new jobs and add $500 billion to the economy. In fact, it’s estimated that one out of every 100 Americans will benefit from a new 5G job.

But, how do we get access now?

5G will revolutionize the way we interact with technology. But we must be ready. The United States must have the infrastructure to lead the way on 5G.
