This Week in 5G: Come Fly With Me


Let’s fly away and see what has been going on in the world of 5G this week.

Uber and AT&T are collaborating on Uber’s commercial air service project Elevate. The joint project will study the use of wireless connectivity to support flying vehicles including cargo drones.

AT&T and Sprint will release a 5G phone, the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G, later this month.

Verizon launched its 5G NFL Mobile Gaming Challenge, a contest to encourage the development of innovative mobile gaming applications. The winner will be announced at the Super Bowl in 2020.

TechRadar reported on 5G’s ability to overcome the biggest obstacles to taking VR mainstream, thanks to its low latency and increased data processing power.

Leaders from Verizon and Qualcomm spoke at the Robotics Summit & Expo about how the low latency of 5G will also lead to more innovations in the field of robotics.

That’s all for this week. See you next time!
