5G Mobile Broadband auctions in the UK are over and the general consensus is that the next generation 5G mobile networks will be delivered over millimeter wave which means that whilst it can provider faster data rates and more importantly faster response times it will be limited in terms of building penetration so applications for the initial roll out of 5G mobile networks may be somewhat limited.  Of course 5G will rely on smallcell technology with large concentrations of small cells, all communicating with each other and whilst this is suitable for installation in cities, it is a different picture for rural 5G networks.  So, if you already live in a city that is saturated with fibre and high speed 4g mobile broadband, you can take advantage of 5G mobile broadband using a 5G Router and probably a 5G antenna outside the building to receive the 5G signal and in the street 5G mobile data capabilities will be fine so proposals for using 5G for autonomous vehicles and IoT aplications will be fine, but what happens when you leave the confines of the 5G network and venture out into the surrounding 4G and 3G mobile networks – how will it all fit together?
