5G rollouts are anticipated throughout 2020 and beyond; network operators still have a lot to do to make 5G live up to its full potential

"5G enables lower latency, utilization of wider channel bandwidths, higher speeds, and improved spectral efficiency. Moreover, the new 5G spectrum below 6 GHz and in the millimeter wave range facilitates significant improvements in capacity that were not possible with 4G spectrum alone. Usage of these large wide swaths of new spectrum bands for 5G are part of the reason 5G trials are showing significant increases in peak throughput: up to 8 concurrent streams at 20 Gbits/sec downloads and four concurrent streams of 10 Gbits/sec uploads..."
