Experts say that the rollout for 5G may seem disappointing, but ultimately consumers should view it as a constantly evolving update instead of a replacement for the networks we currently have.
Though it’s been a couple of years since the introduction of “5G networks,” carriers still seem to offer limited coverage. Additionally, new reports show that the use of mmWave 5G—the most advanced form of 5G available at the moment—is extremely low.
While it’s easy to look at the current state of 5G and despair, experts say you shouldn’t get too caught up on how things look right now. Instead, you should look at 5G as a way for carriers to push the network you already have to new levels. Yes, it’s taking time, but it could have a stronger foundation underneath it when it finally reaches its potential.
