What will 5G mean to you?   by Ron Brown

This year, all the major wireless providers will be offering 5G services. This will affect you in 3 different ways that will include infrastructure upgrade, fixed-base and mobile services. This technology will require a lot more cell towers that can be big or small. It is estimated that to fully implement Mobile 5G; every 10th house in the neighborhood will require an antenna. This may change the look and feel of the part of the world you call home. There will be people resisting change and questioning the safety of 5G.

 What is the difference between fixed-base and mobile 5G?  Should you be purchasing a 5G phone this year?  We’ll try to answer all your questions if time permits
