What is millimeter wave technology?
5G networks have many different telecommunication technologies on the table for creating the 5G network. One of these would be utilizing the millimeter wavelengths. This would relieve the more congested Radio bands that our everyday devices communicate with currently. This will allow the 5G devices to broadcast over millimeter waves frequency.

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.
Verizon has finally unleashed 5G to Minneapolis and Chicago on Wednesday the 3rd of April 2019. The planned launch date was not till April 11th.
With the 5G service now available in these areas, the only cell phones that are able to work with the 5G service is the Motorola’s Moto z3, This phone will require the expansion clip on that allows the phone to support the 5G service. Verizon has explained that they are going to start releasing other 5G phones such as the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G during the first half of the 2019 year.
The 5G service will be offering upwards of 1 Gbps of throughput speeds. But with the currently released 5G being in the early stages, the new 5G cell phones you will be expected to see 450 Mbps and extremely low latency below 30 milliseconds. Verizon is going to be expanding and continuing to work with there engineers to get the network upgraded and increase overall performance.
The manufacture Samsung prepared to announce the first 5G Smartphones, Samsung said the early prototypes looked thick and carried of high pricing. Samsung recently released specs that the Galaxy S10 5G phone will be 7.94 Millimeters thick. Last month Samsung announced they will also be offering the Galaxy Fold, this was demonstrating that not all 5G phone would be thick. Pricing on these Phones could be around $1,500.00 or even more for these 5G smartphones.

Displayed at The MWC in Barcelona was a remotely piloted Freight truck. This truck was unmanned and was able to be controlled from over 1,200 miles away by a remote driver. This was made possible by using the 5G network with the extremely low latency and extremely fast throughputs speeds. This freight truck was driven 100 percent remotely, with the trucks speeds limited to 5 MPH, the truck was navigated around a closed course to show the response times and accuracy of control over the 5G cellular network.
