What is 5G, and how does it enable things that have never been done before? On this episode of Recalibrate we unpack this question, diving into what 5G technology is able to enable things that could never be done before. Derek Johnston discusses how people will shop, work and do things like playing video games differently…”5G is like putting fiber in your pocket. It’s the evolution of mobile technology.” Given 5G’s capabilities, how will it change and impact mobile device capabilities? We cover industries like sports, gaming, manufacturing, and shipping, explaining how a new, faster network is beginning to transform the way we live and work.
