That’s why the standards body known as the 3GPP has just ratified a major part of the 5G standard, months earlier than it projected earlier this year.

Verizon wants 5G to replace home Wi-Fi in 5 cities next year

By now, even if not everyone and not all areas have it, 4G is more or less old news. 5G is the thing that service providers and chipset makers are going for or even fighting against.

The carrier has just announced its plans to offer 5G services in residential areas in three to five cities before 2018 is over, possibly changing the way some households connect to the Internet.
