Aside from having ability to watch Youtube on 4K, what will change? Would it have any impacts to AI, machine learning..etc?

    I think the low latency is probably more interesting than the bandwidth when it comes to things like connected devices, IoT communications, etc. And it's a viable replacement for wifi.

  • Hopefully good bye to comcast for internet. Now your home internet no longer needs to a land cable to connect but you get a wireless base station that provides internet connectivity to all the devices in your house.

      5G last from what I knew has to be closer range, way closer than 4G but I could be wrong. Even further, what I was told is basically on every other telephone pole is a cell tower that would broadcast the high speed internet. But again, this is based on my assumptions & findings, could be wrong with it.

    It will provide you with low latency high speed connectivity when there are like 5 users on the channel.

    Everybody forgets this is only a variant of the existing cellular technology, as far as access to the network is concerned. Each user has to contend with the users for channel access. Old wine in a new bottle.

    More integrated high res AR experiences. Better multiplayer experiences (for those that require higher bandwidth).

      The duck does any of this require 5g?

    A lot of fucking hype by vendors and a lot of disappointment for anyone who thinks it will be materially more interesting that LTE.

    Your office compound only need one base station and no physical cables or access points. Similar for your neighborhood. Fixed broadband finally has competitions. For developing country, they are lack of infrastructure. So this gives them an affordable broadband for the first time.

    Lower latency, which could mean much more processing can be done in the cloud and devices can be even smaller

    Low latency, otherwise you will notice nothing as an end-user

    Nothing. It's same old 4G packaged in different box. We took lesson from apples design team.

    Better live streaming.
    Better customer experience for many applications.
    Less latency issues between services.
    Better data availability to bigdata usecases.
    Better realtime interaction with IOT devices.
    Aids live/near realtime capabilities for Virtual reality world.

    Low latency will be a factor to take autonomous driving to the next level. For example, making quick decisions. In addition, communication to other IOT devices (cars, traffic lights, mobile) will enhance a real-time virtual experience.

      If autonomous vehicles require real-time connectivity they are inherently unsafe.

    Comcast can also purchase spectrum... Hope they don't though
