What will 5G deliver in the future?

It's been over six years since LTE 4G started rolling out, and a finalized 5G standard is expected to arrive around 2018. Now's the time to start exploring the new frontier if you've got a stake in mobile. Naturally, there were plenty of demos and jargon-filled press releases about 5G during the show. But there were also some impressive demos and a palpable excitement in the air for what's to come next.

So what is 5G, exactly? Right now, for lack of a genuine standard, it's mainly just a concept. Broadly, it describes the next generation of wireless networks, which will reach speeds at least ten times faster than LTE, with near-instant latency in some cases. Most companies are looking into millimeter wave technology to achieve faster network speeds, but they're still looking into uses for the spectrum below 6 GHz, which we're already using today. LTE won't be going away anytime soon -- it'll be backwards compatible with 5G, and some implementations might still rely on it for data. (LTE speeds will continually improve over the next few years before 5G actually gets into action.)

For the most part, the big advantage with 5G will be its flexibility, as carriers will be able to adapt it to suit specific needs. Things like smart home devices and connected cars, for example, might tap into a portion of the network that has slower data speeds but makes up for that with incredibly low latency of under a millisecond. 5G could also be used to deploy broadband more easily to rural areas using millimeter wave technology. The wireless internet provider Starry is using the same technology, and some people I've talked to in the industry consider it to be a sort of proto-5G network.
