In this report, we explore the arrival of 5G technology, covering the following key topics:

  • The greater performance offered by 5G compared to 4G
  • The benefits that 5G offer for retailers and consumers
  • Recent developments in 5G—including industry partnerships, such as between Verizon, Microsoft and Nokia, as well as between Google and AT&T
  • 5G availability around the world—covering infrastructure and handsets
