Making Sense of the 5G Spectrum Mess

Article | February 20, 2020

Spectrum has been the lifeblood of the wireless industry since its inception. Without it, mobile connectivity simply doesn’t exist.

The spectrum held by most operators today is not enough to deliver all of these key features of 5G, and early 5G customers have experienced these limitations first hand. Operators will need hundreds of megahertz of clean spectrum to provide 5G networks sporting the oft-promised multi-gigabit speeds.

Article | February 20, 2020

In today’s digitized world, consumers expect nothing less than the best from service providers. They are eager to adopt new technology but are unforgiving when it comes to poor customer experience. Consumers today don’t hesitate to use social media to voice their concerns, and once their complaints are in the public domain they can influence the perception of others easily. To keep their customers happy it’s important for service providers to keep their finger on the pulse when it comes to customer experience while accelerating their 5G rollout. Unfortunately, 5G comes with a new level of network complexity – and I predict it’s going to be more difficult than ever to understand the true experience.
