5G’s lightning-fast network speeds are coming, and many cities are hoping to be the first in line. Dallas; Waco, Texas; and Atlanta will be among the first cities to receive AT&T’s 5G mobile network, while Sacramento, Calif., is slated to be Verizon’s first pick to get the fifth-generation wireless technology.
Wireless carriers are in a race to deliver 5G to households. AT&T has been among the first major mobile carriers to name specific cities that will receive mobile 5G by the end of the year. Just how fast is 5G? It’s said to be 100 times faster and five times more responsive than the current 4G and 4G LTE, the technology currently being used on smartphones and wireless devices. You’ll be able to stream high-resolution VR content without any lag time—for example, a typical download might take 30 seconds on 5G compared to 6 minutes on 4G—and the technology is expected to a foster a more efficient and seamless era of smart-home technology and interconnected devices.
But there’s a caveat to 5G: You’ll need a 5G-capable device to take advantage of it, and there are currently no smartphones on the market that are available with 5G hardware—yet. AT&T expects 5G-ready devices to reach the market this year and in early 2019.Intel announced this weekin partnerships with several PC makers—including Dell, HP, Lenovo, and Microsoft—that it plans to launch 5G laptops by late 2019. Until then, some tech experts are recommending consumers wait to upgrade their devices if they want to take advantage of the new wireless technology.

"My experience with Jim and Ion real estate has amazing. Jim is wonderful to work with. He listened to my challenges and offered suggestion on how to bring my score up to the 640 I would need for a loan to do repairs on the house I am interested in purchasing.
I have been working very hard on making a change in my finances so I can purchase a home in Bailey and it is a pleasure to feel hopeful that this will happen.
I am so grateful to Jim for listening and helping me understand the process.
