Huge step forward for high speed data service:

Members of the 3GPP, the organization that makes cellular standards that carriers and equipment makers around the world need to follow, have ratified a new 5G specification at its meeting in Lisbon, Portugal.

But if you're hoping to have ubiquitous 5G next year, you'll be out of luck. While carriers like Verizon and AT&T have committed to testing 5G in 2018, it's still going to take more time for the technology to officially launch and earn its place as a replacement for 4G.

Oh, that's good news it's been ratified.

Now, the manufacturers and carriers can start planning and the lucky people might see it in the next two years. For the average Joe, we're going to have to wait for 4g to be effective in the first place.

Verizon & AT&T Commit to 5G in 2018:
[msn.com...]

said on Thursday that it plans to launch its mobile 5G network in a dozen markets in late 2018, along with a single device able to tap into that network. This is different from Verizon's plan to offer 5G service as a replacement for home broadband service this year — AT&T's 5G will look more like the typical cellular service you enjoy now.

My new router supports 5g as well as WiFi Certified.

Interesting...
5G is the buzziest of buzzwords in wireless right now. And, that’s a problem. The Carriers are fueling the hype to create tons of confusion about 5G.

Case in point, last week, AT&T introduced #Fake5G – based on technologies we launched in 2016 – and tried to confuse consumers and distract from the fact that their network is losing to T-Mobile.

Okay, this is off topic and admission of bad eyesight and too many years in another industry. I thought it was SG Standard ratified, and I would agree, one of the greatest electric guitars ever.
