In the last few years we’ve gone from “I know someone who as Internet” to “I have Internet everywhere”. Its gone from “I connect” to “I consume”. And, entire industries and technologies have evolved using it.
In the future world of self-driving cars there is the “the car is smart” camp, and “the netework is smart” camp. The cloud is the jalopy to paraphrase Sun.
And, of this low latency huge bandwidth future, 5G is the current poster child of the near future, promising the world. Suddenly, safety concerns. In Canada, exclusion zones for the new fancy frequency bands are announced, surrounding airports. You know, airports that used to be far from people and then the people moved up close?
So, how long before someone w/ a 5G-enabled somewhat-self-driving-car does something stupid near an airport when the 5G becomes the 4G becomes the 3G?
