Some technological advances are evolutionary, a simple next step from where we are now, but others are revolutionary, bringing us more than just more and better than what we have. 5G, the new wireless tech that has been rolling out since 2018, is shaping up to fall into the latter category. It started out looking like that simple next step. 5G would be a faster network, just as 4G once had been. But as it has come online, the other advantages have started to pile up: clearer signals, lower latency, far greater data carrying capacity.
