While the coronavirus continues to spread, 5G coverage makes its rounds around the globe on schedule. This is a crucial time to step up your company's technology to keep pace with increased demands and consumer expectations.
This was supposed to be the year 5G went mainstream. Huge swaths of the world would be blanketed with coverage. Every major handset maker -- including Apple -- would offer a wide variety of 5G phones. After years of hype and last year's early deployments, consumers would finally start to enjoy the benefits of the super-fast wireless technology in a real way.
Then the novel coronavirus struck.
The virus, which causes a pneumonia-like disease called COVID-19, quickly spread across the globe, causing cities and entire countries to issue lockdowns to slow its advance. China, where COVID-19 was first detected in late 2019, shut down first, jamming up production of iPhones and other products. The rest of the world soon followed suit, and the global economy all but ground to a halt.
"In our lifetimes we've never seen a faster economic collapse," Strategy Analytics analyst Ken Hyers said.
The result is a shattering of the buoyant optimism of just six months ago. Millions of people are out of work, and the world has recorded over 10 million COVID-19 infections. But even if the coronavirus has slowed down the rollout of 5G in heavily hit areas such as the US, it's not going to stop 5G's progress.

5G technology, the next generation of mobile internet connectivity, is expected to launch across the world by 2020, bringing three types of innovation: greater speed to be able to move more data; lower latency to improve responsiveness; and the ability to connect many devices at once. While many are focused on what they will be able to do with faster smartphones – 5G is expected to provide average download speeds of 1GBps – others are looking toward the innovations 5G will make possible.
“5G will be the platform for invention,” says a PSB Research report commissioned by Qualcomm. The survey found that 91 percent of worldwide respondents expect 5G to generate “new products and services that have yet to be invented,” and 87 percent expect new industries to emerge.
It’s predicted that 5G technology will bring opportunity to many industries:
5G will also contribute to the Internet-of-Things through machine learning and artificial intelligence, and its evolution will be used with appliances, alarm systems, health monitors, parking meters and traffic signals as well as for ultra-fast wireless delivery of video and data files.
