Tech & social headlines: Potential breakthrough in 5G

My top pick has to be CNN’s piece that researchers are working on 5G wireless technology that can carry 100 times more data. Whilst the article focuses on the technological impact, the real benefit has to be to mobility across society.

A super-speed 5G network may be the final piece in the puzzle to free-up workforces for true flexible working. Perhaps even a new time where the location of work is no longer tied to the office. As with many technology breakthroughs, the impact won’t be felt for a long time. In this instance, this 5G breakthrough sounds like one of those technologies that could create opportunities around mobility that we are yet to predict.
