What makes 5G different from all other Gs? After efforts to develop specifications, technology and research, the industry has an initial view of how the next generation of 5G services will look. What’s still unknown, is just how great will be 5G’s global impact. According to a recent Heavy Reading Operator Survey, there are striking differences between the U.S. and Rest-of-World (RoW) when it comes to 5G expectations. A majority (52%) of U.S. respondents believe that “faster end-user speeds” will be the biggest benefit over the next five years, while 41% of RoW respondents identified “new services and eco-system expansion” as being the primary commercial benefit over the same timeframe.
