Find all the latest news and buzzwords from 5G innovations that are primed to connect the world in ways thought impossible just a few years ago.
5G, the next generation cellular network, is expected to revolutionise entire industries when it is finally launched in 2020. As early as now, businesses are starting to prepare themselves for its arrival and many are taking huge steps to ensure that the technology will work to their advantage.
