Service providers will need to emphasize 5G’s benefits such as low latency and high speeds if they want to appeal to gamers.
Being able to switch between 4G and 5G while using the same spectrum band makes it possible for some operators to deploy 5G without having to wait for valuable mid-band spectrum to become available.
Although U.S. operators have said that their long-term 5G plans remain intact, mobile operators in other parts of the world are not so sure.
5G deployments are encountering some short-term obstacles –such as delayed permits for cell towers and supply chain disruptions —but long-term 5G goals remain in place.
Verizon, T-Mobile, AT&T, and U.S. Cellular secures extra spectrum thanks to a special authorization from the FCC.
Operators will use a combination of different spectrum bands to deliver 5G services, and it will play a critical role in determining the speed and range of coverage.
5G promises to provide mobile operators with a path to automation that will enable them to portion off their networks for specific use cases.
