Welcome to the first in a regular blog series from AT&T Connecticut that will discuss 5G – what it is, where it is and what it can do for our state and beyond.
|FAST: 5G will provide increased data speeds, allowing you to download games, movies, TV shows and more, faster than before.|
|RELIABLE: 5G will also bring the ability to connect more devices to the network simultaneously and deliver lower latency – reducing lag time between devices sending and receiving data.|
|SECURE: Finally, when 5G is fully evolved, it will be more secure with stronger encryption over the air, and smarter network software than prior generations.|
The implications, benefits and opportunities realized from 5G stretch across industries and our communities, including business, education, health care, entertainment, travel and transportation, public safety and beyond.
A 2020 poll conducted in Connecticut asked likely voters their attitudes about wireless connectivity, 5G, and their use of such technology during the COVID-19 pandemic.1 Those polled strongly believe quality wireless connectivity is a priority; and they support efforts by government officials and the telecom industry to enhance wireless networks.
Respondents overwhelmingly believe it is important that they, their families, and the community institutions they rely on have quality wireless service and support the associated infrastructure improvements to enhance networks, including upgrades to 5G.
