If you’ve only heard conspiracy theories about 5G, what follows will show the massive positive changes it will bring the world.
5G will allow a top surgeon in Harley Street to operate on a patient anywhere in the world… from the comfort of his own operating room in London.
Just last August a surgeon in China performed the world’s first remote operation – a BRAIN SURGERY…
And he did it USING 5G TECHNOLOGY.
That 5G news item and all the other 5G revelations in this post, came to me as I gloomily wondered how the world economy will recover from the virus devastation?
Because of my age, my first thoughts were conditioned by the last time a comparable catastrophe struck the world.
The 1930s Depression.
But, ever the optimist, I thought, we are more advanced now. I know of life changing new technology that is rumoured to be near success, such as nuclear fusion, which will replicate the energy of the sun and provide the world with virtually free energy.
But now I think 5G technology will be first to revolutionise and create change beyond recognition, and its being rolled out now.
It answers the puzzle in my mind, why governments seem confident to borrow more and more money even though we are already Trillions in debt.
Yes, 5G has it’s doubters and accusers.
They believe 5G has something to do with the Covid-19 crisis.
You can find people who believe the government is engineering vaccines to contain toxic substances that 5G will ‘push’ into your cells…
Others believe it reduces the amount of oxygen in the air – slowly suffocating anyone in the immediate vicinity – If you think this then do as I am doing – keep your blood oxygenated with my recommendation here.
But there is someone against every invention.
In the 1500s, Swiss scientist Conrad Gessner lambasted the printing press, calling the flood of new information ‘confusing and harmful to the mind’…
The first automobiles were accused of encouraging teenagers to have casual sex, commit crimes and disobey their parents…
When televisions first entered households, people reported being spied on through the screen…
More recently, there were similar doom predictions about the greatest innovation in recent times: the internet.
In its early stages CNN ran a report stating “Email hurts IQ more than pot.”
Three years later The Times mocked the Telegraph for saying it made people “Mourn for the good old times when mails came by steamer twice a month.”
And this early 1900s cartoon shows the fears about the invention of the telephone.
What this shows is that humans have a psychologically ingrained resistance to change.
So fast is change that it seemed like yesterday that telecoms companies rolled out the very first ‘1G’ mobile network.
Things were simpler. No texting. No Camera. All you could do was call each other. And the maximum speed was just 2.4kbps.
To put that in context, it would have taken you 33 days to download an HD movie .
Still, even that created an explosion of wealth.
Motorola was the first company to release a mobile phone to consumers.
Remember this house brick size mobile? – Not that long ago either.
Then the Nokia 3210. In the late 1990s, everyone and their dog had one.
It was the 3210 that characterised the 2G revolution.
This was the moment mobile phones became truly portable. And it caused the number of people using them to skyrocket from 1 in every 10,000 people…
To 16 in every 100 people and counting,– globally.
No one was even thinking about downloading HD movies back then. But if you had, it would have taken you a day and a half.
But then came 4G and everything changed.
15 minutes to download an HD video.
And the ‘App Economy’ exploded! Almost overnight billion dollar apps like Uber, Deliveroo, and Spotify burst onto the scene.
And of course the company that made it all possible – Apple – Stock price went through the roof.
And now it’s 5G’s turn.
With 5G, that HD movie will take all of 2.5 seconds!
That’s 100-times faster than 4G.
Every time we get a major upgrade in download speeds, new fortunes are made!
There are many more reasons why 5G is the only topic to steal mainstream media coverage from that of Covid-19.
That explain why the government has given telecoms engineers laying 5G infrastructure the same ‘key worker’ status as doctors and nurses fighting Covid-19 in hospitals.
Why, during the coronavirus panic, Boris Johnson made Britain’s plans to implement 5G a priority in parliamentary debate…
Remember what I said earlier about 5G enabling a top surgeon in Harley Street to operate on a patient anywhere in the world… from the comfort of his own operating room in London.
And how just this August a surgeon in China performed the world’s first remote operation – a BRAIN SURGERY…
After the operation Dr. Ling said, ““The 5G network has solved problems like video lag and remote control delay experienced under the 4G network… And you barely feel that the patient is 3,000 kilometres away!”
This breakthrough is because 5G brings speed and eliminates lag.
It means there’s no delay in devices talking to each other, even over huge distances.
Which opens up hundreds of new uses for the technology…
As you’ll soon see, it is no coincidence MIT scientists call this divisive technology “a technological paradigm shift, akin to the shift from typewriter to the computer”.
Nor is it a coincidence Bill Gates has taken a $650 million position in 5G. And to indicate scale he said the changes it will bring will eventually be worth “10 Microsofts”.
Some of the largest and biggest tech firms in the world are staking the future of their businesses on 5G.
Apple is preparing every single one of its devices to integrate with this tech…
So is Samsung… and Sony.
Google, Tesla, Motorola, Bosch, Cisco and Microsoft are all staking billions on what’s coming.
Take a look at this forecast from research firm CCS Insight – it shows the expected number of 5G smartphone subscriptions over the next 5 years.
They predict a jump from 4 million subscription next year…
To 2.61 BILLION by 2025.
That’s 60,492% growth.
Just as previous ground-breaking technology created new start ups, 5G will change the business landscape beyond recognition.
I have far more revelations of what 5G will transform – Why it is essential for widespread growth in self drive vehicles? And could it make Broadband unnecessary? – next time.
