Last month in Las Vegas, the Consumer Electronics Show showcased some of what we can expect from the tech world in 2019. This year’s CES was memorable for several reasons, from an intelligent toilet to banned sex toys. But one term kept popping up throughout the four days of the exhibition: 5G.
Most of us will have to wait until 2020 to see what 5G can do, but after 10 years in a 4G world, we’re still not totally prepared for the potential consequences of this next generation of wireless communication.
Jordan Erica Webber looks at what could be a game-changer in the technology world. She chats to Prof Mischa Dohler about his live, 5G performance with his 10-year-old daughter, and to the former NSA hacker Dave Kennedy.
