The Future is Now: 5G Wireless Networks

The Wireless Summit will explore how wireless technology will be integral to providing high-speed broadband access in rural, suburban, and urban communities in Maine. 5G has the capability to upgrade current bandwidth using a combination of wireless and wireline connections that will enable faster data downloads and upload speeds, wider coverage, more stable connections, and less latency over shorter physical distances. 5G is leading to major enhancements for health care applications, industrial equipment, self-driving cars, smart cities, and connected devices.
