5G is a game-changer. ARE YOU READY?
Is 5G changing things for news organizations? YES! 5G takes transmission speed to a new level, along with the probability of transforming consumer behavior and expectations.
With the 5G tipping point expected by 2025, it’s time to prepare with new production, product, and storytelling strategies.
What is 5G?
Since first generation wireless coverage emerged in the 1980s, there’s been a speed revolution roughly every decade. So, 5G simply means “fifth generation.” Compared to 4G, 5G optimizes frequencies to provide more space and adds more efficient technologies to accommodate more devices simultaneously. 5G networks are expected to be at least 10 times faster than 4G, but some believe that ratio could reach 100. While 5G won’t operate at the maximum speeds in less densely populated areas, its frequency range is expected to help bridge the digital divide between rural and urban – providing greater broadband access for all.
