The year 2019 brings with it lots of new technology, and perhaps the most exciting development is advent of 5G networks.

Everything that we have known until now is about to change because 5G provides us with blazing speeds on our mobile devices, which will not only enable us to do a variety of things in real time but will also dramatically decrease content buffering and network lag.

So, what does “5G” exactly mean? Every “G” represents a different aspect of connectivity:

1G voice

2G Text messages

3G Internet

4G LTE -Faster internet

5G will give unprecedented speeds of 100 gbps+

This speed is so fast that it will allow us to use virtual reality in real time, which means someone could be controlling a device from across the globe. This could be used during a medical procedure, to drive a car remotely, or to fly airplanes.

The downside of 5G is that its frequency (millimeter wave) is much shorter, so more transmitter antennas would need to be deployed throughout cities. Deployment of 5G has been in the works for some time now and it has started in select cities, including, since last December, Houston, Dallas, Atlanta, Waco, and San Antonio in Texas, Charlotte and Raleigh in North Carolina, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, Jacksonville, Florida, Louisville, Kentucky, New Orleans, Louisiana, and Indianapolis, Indiana.

The infrastructure of 5G is extremely costly as it is brand-new technology and it requires new transmitters and antennas; existing legacy transmitters cannot be upgraded. National availability of 5G is expected by March 2020.

Network abilities attained with 5G connectivity would also allow new technology to emerge and will provide a better internet experience for users.

Publisher's Note

I moved to the United States almost 20 years ago, and as a sports fan, I couldn't stand the fact that I did not understand how American football worked.

It was impossible not to get infected by the passion and the love New Orleanians have for the boys in the Black and Gold, so I made it a point to learn the basics and join the fun of watching the beloved Saints play.

I was lucky to suffer with a weak team only for a few years, and I was fortunate to be part of the WHO DAT Nation when they made it to the Super Bowl in Miami.

Even though the Super Bowl we wished for this year did not happen, our team gave us a great season, and off the field, many Saints players are doing so much for this community through their foundations and giving back some love to their fan base. Today, The Saints continue to be an essential driving force of our community.

It is amazing what passion and pride can do for the city of New Orleans. The Saints gave us an incredible season! I know we’ve had a few weeks of coping, and many people have decided to party away from television sets the night of the championship game, but I still want to thank the New Orleans Saints for all the joy they gave us this last season.

Like most of you, I'm always proud to yell out loud WHO DAT!
