The fifth generation of wireless has arrived. An estimated 10 million mobile subscribers globally will be using 5G before the year is out, and the world will spend upwards of $1 trillion to build more 5G networks. But what will we gain from the most expensive mobile infrastructure project in global history? For many consumers, businesspeople, and investors, the answer to that question is far from clear.
Quartz’s newest presentation cuts through the hype to lay out what 5G really means for the future. It takes you through 5G’s revolutionary potential, as well as its very real limitations—from a network that barely exists, to devices that have not yet been invented.
