The Future of Wireless Technology in 2016

Everyone has had their own predictions for the future. This was evident especially after Marty McFly and Doctor Emmett Brown traveled back into the future and landed in a highly advanced 2015. Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale, co-writers of Back to the Future Part II, did their best animation of what they envisioned the advancement of technology would be like and where it would take us. Through the power of imagination and creativity, many pictured the invention and innovation of technology more as fantasy rather than reality. However, in 2016, the future of wireless technology has now come to life, and the concepts for this year are accurate as they are thrilling.

What to Expect from Wireless Technology:

  • The telecom industry has already started working on the next 5G.
  • On February 12th, AT&T, America’s second-largest mobile operator, said it would begin testing whether prototype 5G circuitry works indoors, following similar news in September from Verizon, the number one operator.
  • South Korea wants to have a 5G network up and running when it hosts the Winter Olympics in 2018.
  • On February 11th, Qualcomm, a chip-design firm, introduced the world’s first 4G chip set that allows for data-transmission speeds of up to 1 gigabit per second.
