'5G Is Coming!' by David Lee King
The latest post in David Lee King’s blog series on emerging technology trends and libraries covers 5G networks. He writes, “It’s short for 5th Generation, and is the newest mobile, cellular network.

King details three ways 5G improves on older networks—speed, latency, and connectivity—and has predictions for ways society will change because of it in the next 5 years. Last but not least, he ponders what 5G means for libraries.
