Quotable

“What is truly exciting about 5G is that people can see in it the future come to life. It represents the culmination of what was once only imagined in old Hollywood movies — a universe where wireless technology is embedded and ingrained in nearly everything. A 5G wireless world will no longer be about one, siloed device carried in a pocket or purse. If the Internet served to connect people and places through specialized devices, 5G will take it a step further to serve as the first real wireless standard to seamlessly connect everything else.”

– FCC commish Michael O’Rielly speaking at the NJ & NY Wireless Associations’ 2020 Update Webinar
