5G presents a broad scope of advancements in the world of technology. Phone carriers heavily advertised the capabilities of 5G, attracting users with promises of faster load speeds and fewer service disruptions. T-Mobile came in hot, significantly outperforming its competitors, AT&T and Verizon Wireless, who could not meet the standards they assured. This problem is set to resolve this year as the companies recently gained access to an extensive range of midband called C-band. T-mobile had access to this midband because of its recent and profitable merge with Sprint.
Carriers offering this expanded network bring many opportunities for growth in the tech sector. Depending on where you live, you could access 5G home internet. However, this isn’t the main event in 5G.
The attention of the masses is on the Metaverse, the augmented reality that presents benefits and perils to society. If you’ve seen Black Mirror, you may know the threat to the community. While it could allow us to hang out in an environment safe from Covid, it could also cause an addiction to an alternate reality since you live through a cartoon version of yourself and not your actual self. There are pros and cons to 5G, but it is inevitable. The fantastic potential it presents to bring innovation to the tech industry will take us to the future.
