Is 5G the future of mobile networking?


The race to 5G has certainly captured an outsized proportion of airtime in the marketplace in recent years, along with no shortage of controversy. Putting the wider geo-political context to one side, two clear camps have emerged within the industry itself which are fueling the debate. One which believes that 5G is the future and ‘the next big thing’, and the other which believes it is largely an expensive marketing gimmick with no real value or use cases in the real world.

As it turns out, history has a thing or two perhaps to teach us about which one may be right. The year is 1969 and Concorde, the fastest-ever commercial aircraft, is unveiled to the world with the ability to fly at 1,354mph. At a total development cost of £1.3bn (or approximately £33bn today, accounting for inflation), this marvel of technology cruises at approximately Mach II and promised to get passengers from Paris to New York in less than 3.5 hours.
