Verizon to conduct field trials next year for 5G service
Verizon says that 5G allows 50 times the throughput as 4G, and users will be able to download a full-length film in seconds. The carrier notes that 87% of its data traffic runs through its 4G LTE network, adding that 98% of the country has access to a 4G LTE signal.
Besides Verizon's 5G tests in the U.S., in South Korea, the hope is that a 5G pipeline will be up and running in time for the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics. Japan wants to have 5G service available in 2020 when it hosts the Summer Olympic games. Of course, having 5G service up and running means nothing without new handsets that can support the faster speeds.
Thanks for the tip!
