Another example of glossing over the all-important details?
AT&T on Friday unveiled its 5G network roadmap for 2016 and if all goes
according to plan, the carrier could launch services on a limited basis
starting this year.
The article says that AT&T will be starting "field trial of 5G technologies
to fixed locations" this year. Hardly deploying 5G. Testing technologies
means testing individual components of the standard, e.g. components that
AT&T has been working on.
The article further says that the first phase of 5G standards should be ready
by 2018, at which point AT&T would upgrade their test setup.
This is the way a reasonable standards process is SUPPOSED to work, Craig.
Even though I fully expect that 5G will be just as artificially separated
into separate enclaves as 2G-4G have been.
