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.[tomsguide.com...]
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.
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.

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.source: [newsroom.t-mobile.com...]
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.
