Re: As 5G is embraced....
How do you feel 5G in your area? How is your real daily broadband working for you? That can answer some questions.

Re: As 5G is embraced....
Set, maybe. Well set? Not too much. It’s good to start preparations what’s next after what’s almost ready but sometimes the not mass readiness of 5G could be a serious issue.

6G Already?
..."organisations should keep an eye on not only what is coming up next, but what is also coming up after that."

Guess that's why it's time to think about 6G when 5G has barely rolled out.

Re: As 5G is embraced....
I think we are stretching it little too much. Forget 6G, are we all set with 5G yet? Or is it just me needing to catch up? That's how i feel honestly.

Re: As 5G is embraced....
Interesting. Your comments make me think it'll be like giving a high-end sports car to a teenager just learning to drive. The kid is just learning to drive a regular family car...

Re: As 5G is embraced....
Nope. No one is ready for 6G yet. Neither the networks nor the providers or the people. People are definitely not ready for the technological implications and advances that 6G will represent. 6G testing and reserach, however, is all well under way as we speak. I have already spoken to Nokia people working in this area. 6G comes along with the possibility of Artificial General Intelligence. Are people ready for that?
