On Tuesday, Verizon announced the launch of 5G technology in Houston. The fifth generation of wireless technology is expected to increase speeds by 10 to 20 times what it was before. But this technology won’t be available citywide; only in certain districts can users upgrade their phones to ones with 5G capability – that doesn’t include iPhones.
Our technology expert Omar Gallaga is following the 5G rollout, and says consumers shouldn’t hold their breath waiting for access to 5G.
What you’ll hear in this segment:
– How much faster 5G is compared to 4G
– Why there’s limitations to 5G
– When more consumers, beyond those in Houston, will have access to 5G
