5G, stands for the fifth generation of wireless technology, promises a major boost speed Internet connection. A 5G network, you can seconds, not minutes Download the latest "Star Wars" film in need of today's networks. For farming equipment from the bulbs of the anticipated ubiquity, will help connect millions of devices, and allow them to communicate with each other, and.
Now AT & T has come out publicly with 5G roadmap. This offering Verizon for conducting field tests this year follows.
AT & T, the nation's second-largest wireless carrier, said Friday it plans to start development work on 5G technology with partners Ericsson and Intel in the second quarter. Field trials are expected by the end of the year, Austin, Texas began.
Marks the next steps on the long journey to the company's roadmap 5G. Although AT & T and Verizon promises are now moving through the test, the technology industry is not expected to be widely available until 2020. With the building of the hype, the 5G, a high and will take more responsive network.

AT & T is the idea of the new devices are added, they can move more quickly by relying on the specific software upgrade process. The company has worked on several of the key components of its laboratories in 5G technology, said this year.
