I got thinking the other day. It seems like we've only just got to the point where 4G is the norm for a lot of people, and 5G is already on people's lips as the new technological leap forward. With 4G internet making an always-connected lifestyle a reality and becoming the backbone of so many people's lives, we'd love to see your predictions for what the next generation of mobile technology will bring.
We're pretty sure that conversations like this are happening in board rooms all up and down the country - people trying to decide for you what this technology should be, how it works, and what you're going to use it for. But we know, of course, that the true nature of any technology isn't decided by those people. It's decided by the people who use it. So, we thought we'd come straight to you.
In a few years, when 5G is the accepted standard, what do you see it being used for?
Hi @t_will, No doubt you are aware that EE have a working 5G Transmitter near St Paul's Cathedral as of last week.
The News item mentioned Vodafone's ambitions but O2 wasn't mentioned at all.
Any idea if and when there is a potential for O2 to test in the Capital in the near future?
I gather there is a 5G phone trade fair in Europe this week so the wider launch can't be too far off. EE claim their 5G will be ten times faster than existing 4G which to my mind would be pretty much instant.
