5G will support 22 million jobs by 2035

Good news for tower technicians. Brendon Carr, a commissioner on the U.S. Federal Communications Commission told a college this week domestic 5G roll out will require 20,000 new “skilled workers,” based on estimates from wireless workers. He is working with the National Wireless Safety Alliance to establish training programs for future telecom tower technicians (TTT-1), a designation and certification developed by the safety group. Currently some schools have seven week programs.

“It’s time we build on the success here at Aiken and stand up similar tower training programs in community colleges and technical schools throughout the U.S.,” Carr said. “Doing so will address our country’s need for more TTT-1 certified workers and help close the skills gap by turning our country’s community colleges into pipelines for 5G jobs. “ The TTT-1 certification is a non-supervisory certification described by NWSA as “for crew members who perform general construction activities with an emphasis on tower system installation, modification, maintenance, and inspection of support structures used in telecommunications, including personal wireless communications, public safety communications, utility networks, and broadcast.”

NO, the rumor going around is upsetting all those iPhone lovers. We won’t be seeing a 5g iPhone until 2021. At least other 5g phones will still be coming out with other manufacturers. That claim comes from a source “with knowledge of the situation” speaking to Fast Company. The source says that Intel has been missing deadlines for the development of its XMM 8160 5G modem, supposedly destined for the 2020 iPhone.

Verizon’s 5G network is confusing and difficult according to recent tests.

Verizon recently activated the 5G network in Chicago and Minneapolis on Wednesday. The 5G network should be much faster and the way we use our smartphones should be greatly improved. But some early testing from Cnet and The Verge in Chicago suggest it has not had greatest results.

Cnet has wrote a article explaining the early testing of the 5G network with the Motorola Moto Z3 will require a $200 5G accessory to allow access to the 5G network.

CNet Article
“Even carefully positioned a few feet away from the 5G node, the large on-screen icon exclaiming Verizon’s 5G network toggled back and forth from 4G to 5G,” CNET said. “After two hours, we had run maybe one clean Speedtest.net app side by side with the Galaxy S10 Plus.” Samsung’s phone is a 4G LTE device. “

The Verge said
“coverage is so extremely sparse that, for right now, I’d caution anyone against buying the 5G Moto Mod and paying Verizon an extra $10 every month to receive 5G,” even though it found “blazing fast data speeds.”

Verizon explained to CNBC why the network might have dropped in and out, but cautioned it did not know where the news outlets tested its network.
