Waiting for true 5G? You'll need patience.

Techstination feature for Friday, June 28, 2019

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.     Some of the first 5G capable mobile devices have been arriving….but in reality…we’re going to have to be patient when it comes to the 5G promise of super fast networking everywhere.    So says Bernard Borghei, co-founder of Vertical Bridge, the largest privately held telecom infrastructure company in the U.S. ..

“It is going to take time to deploy a true, stand alone, mobility based 5G network.  We’re looking at at least another five, eight to ten years.   It all depends on how the market responds and how the operators can actually monetize the applications and the services for 5G and therefore how quickly they will continue to invest in it.”

Eventually it could replace many wired Internet connections in our homes and businesses too.
