AT&T & Verizon's Battle Over Public Safety Spills Into 5G
AT&T and Verizon are locked in a heated battle over which carrier should sell wireless services to public safety users like police, firefighters and other first responders. And that battle is now spilling into a new front: 5G.
"As we build out 5G, it will be made available to public safety, just at the same time it will be made available to any other customer in terms of the network capability," said Tami Erwin, chief of Verizon's new Business unit and the executive in charge of selling Verizon services to public safety
How can the challenges of 5G be overcome?
The opportunities that a more advanced connectivity network is promising continue to escalate, and with good reason. But there are still problems that need to be overcome if the promise of 5G is to become a beneficial reality.
In a nutshell, 5G promises faster speed, reduced latency, a more reliable connection and should we need it (and let’s be honest, we probably do) the ability to connect many more devices to the internet.

EU Parliament has ‘deep concerns’ about Chinese 5G gear while German spooks brand Huawei untrustworthy
The EU Parliament has stated it has ‘deep concerns’ about Chinese 5G gear while German intelligence officials brand Huawei's gear untrustworthy.
Europe has been fairly open to Chinese telecoms vendors in the past, so companies such as Huawei were hopeful European countries wouldn't follow the likes of the US and Australia in banning equipment.
To be clear – the EU Parliament hasn't yet banned Chinese 5G equipment, but its comments today are pretty damning.
