The American rollout of 5G has been one of the most closely watched developments in the telecommunications industry in recent years. With promises of faster download and upload speeds, lower latency, and increased capacity, it’s no surprise that the major carriers in the US have been investing heavily in this technology.
All major carriers in the US have launched 5G networks in some capacity. Verizon was the first to launch a 5G network in the country, with its fixed 5G home internet service going live in October 2018. The carrier has since expanded its 5G network to several major cities across the US, including New York City, Los Angeles, and Chicago.
As more 5G-enabled devices become available, we can expect to see even more rapid adoption of this technology. The increased speed and capacity offered by 5G networks will make it possible to stream high-quality video and download large files in seconds, which will have a big impact on a range of industries, including entertainment, healthcare, and transportation.
However, the rollout of 5G networks has not been without its challenges. One of the biggest concerns is the potential impact of 5G radiation on human health, with some experts warning that the increased number of 5G base stations could have harmful effects on people living nearby.
Another challenge is the cost of building out 5G infrastructure. The increased speed and capacity offered by 5G networks require more base stations than 4G networks, which can be expensive to build and maintain.
Despite these challenges, the American rollout of 5G is continuing apace. As more devices become 5G-enabled and more applications are developed to take advantage of the technology, we can expect to see even more exciting developments in the world of telecommunications in the years ahead.
