Balancing new apps and privacy on the 5G Edge: Opinions and Views of Millennials
5G networks are the next step forward in mobile/cellular networks. They are characterized by very high downlink (and uplink) speeds, low latency, a flat network architecture with split control and user planes, and a services-oriented focus. Countless new services will become available with 5G. Some of the services, such as mobile gaming with Augmented Reality (AR) or Virtual Reality (VR), are not possible without 5G, while others are simply enhanced by 5G functionality.
For this white paper, iGR measured interest in several specific 5G services and applications that rely on at least one aspect of 5G functionality. For this analysis iGR surveyed U.S. mobile users between the age of 18 and 34, an age group that has grown up with wireless service and mobile apps and will drive the adoption of 5G.
