Re: Businesses and 5G
I agree. I do think that the time, energy and money spent to make 5G might cause some delays on the project. However it's exciting to see what will happen with 5G and what it'll be like!

Businesses and 5G
5G technology sounds great but it seems as thought the cost to implement and time and resources required to implement the technology will cause a delay in implementation.

However, the technology will transform the way companies do business and will provide a better experience for customers.

Executives who never heard of 5G are out of the office on a yacht talking about their company perks and salaries. It is unacceptable that executives do not keep up with the latest technologies or at least the major ones like 5G.

Re: Scary Numbers
afwriter,  you are right, it is scary but unfortunately this is a reality at most companies, executives are unaware of what happens in their companies or just don't care.

Re: Takewawy: Europeans are still too optimistic about planning and foresight
I agree! It's hard to say what the world will look, be like in 5 years let alone 20! Problems occur, technology changes and we just can't think ahead 20 years into the future.

Re: Scary Numbers
@afwriter - i think this illustrates the disconnect between the executives and the folks that make the technology decisions. My guess would be the CIOs would have a better idea of what their 5G plans may be than the CEOs and asking them may yield better results.

Re: Takewawy: Europeans are still too optimistic about planning and foresight
I am with you @JohnBarnes that we must be taken by the latest hype before us.   A sense of awareness is paramount.

Re: Takewawy: Europeans are still too optimistic about planning and foresight
Mike P, thanks for that link (and I second the recommendation).  Always glad to see someone else willing to say that most "technological advance" is largely marketing hype, and to note how many things are in the way of the future-as-envisioned-by-the-nerds.

Re: Takewawy: Europeans are still too optimistic about planning and foresight
As I saw the discourse here, I wondered what the community thought of this:

http://www.smh.com.au/technology/technology-news/mobile-broadband-fraud-5g-perhaps-terminally-poor-analysts-say-20160621-gporuk

This is quite an indictment.

Re: Takewawy: Europeans are still too optimistic about planning and foresight
I agree. 20 years is too hard to predict in this day and age. 

The problem is that something disruptive always comes along and changes the game. It's often and old technology that had already been tried wrapped in some new architecture. Smartphones and virtual reality are examples of this.
