“Email, instant messaging, and cell phones give us fabulous communication ability, but because we live and work in our own little worlds, that communication is totally disorganized.”
– Marilyn vos Savant –
Wireless data usage in the U.S. has increased 40x since 2010 with over 15 trillion MB carried over wireless networks in 2017. Additionally, there are now 273 million smartphones in the U.S. and, if given the choice, most people would rather give up chocolate, dating, beer or coffee instead of their device. These are interesting (and humorous) statistics, but the coming 5G wireless networks will not only capitalize on the fundamental changes already underway with our society and economy, but propel us into a future that in many ways will be unrecognizable from our current vantage point.
