A lot of hands in the cookie jar.
"AT&T claims it will launch mobile 5G in 12 markets by late 2018,"

This should be interesting. Personally I feel like AT&T has been all over the place lately. Like they're trying to get into every corner they can find. I suppose it's a tactic, I just don't know how good of one it is. Do a bunch of things so-so or do a few things really well. Good or bad, at least in my opinion, the former seems to be what they're going for.

South Korea Leads 5G
I don't think I'm really surprised about foreign countires being in the lead because they have advanced technology that we would not have thought about or done yet. So I say to continue success and reach for the stars with 5G.

Re: A lot of hands in the cookie jar.
12 markets is also not a whole country. Obviously, the U.S. is much larger than South Korea but if we are asking which country will have total coverage first it seems fairly obvious.

@afwriter: Indeed, there are many parts of the US that don't even have reliable broadband or cellular coverage now.

They'll at least launch whatever they prefer to define as mobile 5G. ;) There are telcos that are saying they already pretty much have it.

Re: A lot of hands in the cookie jar.
@Joe, we have not "needed" this link for communication in the US - we have had other choices.  Plus we have not had a single "design" for US strategy on digital networks - although it appears President Trump is considering one!

So our options for upgrading are greater, whereas other countries will be able to leapfrog their development and not have to navigate the US public/private architectures.  I bet we pick up speed in the future though!

Great survey and info, Sarah!

Re: A lot of hands in the cookie jar.
@Dhagar I think you hit the nail on the head with "not have to navigate the US public/private architecture" and there is also the size and a wide array of geography and weather in the U.S. and all o that plays a factor in infrastructure. I have to say that your idea is probably number one though.

Re: A lot of hands in the cookie jar.
@vnewman: I think the media commentary is misleading. Government's role will likely remain limited to the allocation of the spectrum and if the past is any guide, the US does well there and recovers from an initial lag in adoption. The real issue is trade reciprocity. The comment about the reservation of 70 percent of the Chinese market to domestic companies is the pointer to the administration's intentions.
