As we approach year's end, we're going to start seeing the rollout of the first 5G wireless systems, starting with Verizon in four markets in the US and moving through multiple carriers worldwide over the next few years. The first cities to have 5G will be Houston, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, and Sacramento.
However, the most interesting aspects of 5G are neither its next-gen tech appeal nor the actual speeds involved. Instead, the most dramatic changes and highest stakes in this new rollout will be in contests, challenges, and achievements behind the scenes, generally opaque to most users and media reporters.
In fact, countries and companies are in a struggle for dominance - and even survival - based on the outcomes of this new competition, in ways that were not true for any earlier wireless standards.
