We will email you the Google Hangouts Meet link after you’ve registered. (We will also use a waiting room and admit you from there.) For any questions, please contact admin@svtc-va.org.

5G is the next generation of mobile phone radio technology. Deployment of 5G by wireless phone providers has already begun, and it will ramp up in 2020. In this talk, we’ll explain 5G in simple terms and lay out how it will impact you today and in the next decade.
