Re: 4G LTE
@freehe - my understanding was the 3G devices were able to operate on 4G networks, but only within what they were capable of. (I could definitely be wrong about this.) But my guess is, if that is correct, a 4G device would operate on a 5G network, just not to 5G levels.

Re: Deployment of 5G
@clrmoney - I completely agree. Why hold on to something that isn't what the potential that 5G brings to the table? 5G brings so many new avenues of opportunity, we shouldn't worry about missing them because of any obstacles that might hinder it. I do think it's noteworthy, that it felt like we went from 3G to 4G overnight (maybe we didn't, but it felt like it to me) and we've been anticipating 5G for years now...... And also, where does it end? Will my children know 27G as adults?

Re: 4G LTE
I can't but ask, despite the apparent optimism at hand, is whether we are in fact ready or not?   Are we?

4G LTE
I wonder if 4G LTE devices will be able to work on 5G networks? That would makes the transition easier. However, I do not know if that is possible technically.

Road to 5G
4G signals are stronger in metropolitan cities. The signal gets weaker is  less densely populated areas and reduces to 3G in rural areas.

When 5G becomes available consumers will have to get a new 5G device to access the 5G networks since 3G devices only work on 3G networks. 4G devices only work on 4G networks.

Transition
I forgot that some people still use 3G and maybe even 2G. Service providers will have to create multiple implementation plans to move from 2G/3G to LTE, then LTE to 5G.

@Gabriel Brown, Great article. The plan for implementation 5G sounds welll thought out and feasible. 5G will meet the current and future demands of customers.

Two Questions
Based on the above and the first half of the Q&A, I have two questions:

>>Is the most important development of 5G the network slicing capabilities and the business opportunities to which they will give rise, or the development of high frequency 5G NR?

>>Should service providers in fairest identify 5G NSA-based approaches, since they technically limited compared to 5G SA, an approach that still is down the road a bit?

Deployment of 5G
The 5G has a lot to offer when ot comes to data etc. So if they have to deploy or get rid of something thats not working then do it. I also like the part about multiple networks for 5G so you an expand into different things.
