5G in the United States 2020: What's Real? What's Smoke? What's Mirrors?

DUBLIN, May 21, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The "5G 2020: What's Real? What's Smoke? What's Mirrors?" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.


We read a great deal about 5G in the local papers and hear about it almost every night on TV news. Most of what we read and hear is, at best, confusing and, too often, misleading and downright wrong!

    --  Carrier A claims to be the first in the country;
    --  Carrier B claims to be the first in the country;
    --  Carrier C claims the fastest service:
    --  One carrier is suing another carrier for false advertising;
    --  This company is barred from the US because of spying accusations;
    --  We see claims for 5G, even at the Super Bowl;

Major carriers are talking, but not investing. What's going on?

So what is the truth? What exactly is 5G's status? Who is really deploying and investing like they are talking? What developmental issues remain? Who is going to pay for this development and deployment?

This comprehensive report considers these issues and ultimately suggests the likely scenario for 5G deployment in the US. All based on the current viewpoint from about one year of deployment experience in the US. The report also describes and explains 5G from many perspectives, including objectives, frequency plans, architecture, and a discussion of the vendors involved in the various parts of 5G infrastructure - phones, radios, and chipsets.
