The introduction of 5G networks will not solve the connectivity issues affecting many rural communities across the UK, new research has claimed.
uSwitch.com says its latest survey has found that many phone users are still struggling with 4G signal, and many have no current plans to upgrade to 5G because most of the launch sites are cities and urban areas.

Motorists are not ready to take their hands off the wheel and surrender control to driverless cars, research by the AA suggests.
The British motoring association has found that while many people see the benefits, such as improved mobility for the elderly and disabled, the cultural attachment to cars is stronger than technology and the issue of trust in autonomous vehicles remains a concern.

5G is set to have a huge impact on the way we live, work and play. Whilst 4G gave a major boost to the mobile internet capabilities of 3G, 5G is set to revolutionise communications in a much more significant way. Much more than just a small step-up in capabilities from 4G, 5G will bring faster speeds, higher data capacity and incredibly low latency.
There are lots of myths about 5G, but the reality is that it will be an absolute game changer. An essential element for the evolution of products and services in the increasingly data-driven world, 5G is will bring huge benefits for both consumers and businesses, generating a massive $10 trillion of revenue by 2035, according to ABI Research, as well as bringing huge benefits for consumers.
It’s Rugby World Cup time in Japan, with the first round of rugby union’s most elite competition kicking off over the weekend. During the next few weeks, thousands of fans will travel far and wide across the country to soak up the action. In addition to bringing bundles of optimism about their teams’ prospects, die-hard supporters will arrive armed with a legion of connected devices.

With its faster speeds, greater network capacity and incredibly low latency, 5G is set to be a game changer. Each new generation of communication technology has brought significant changes to the way we work and live. The network driven world began with 3G, marking the start of mobile internet and 4G enabling video streaming and social media. 5G is set to amplify all these things, but it's not just about downloading video from Netflix faster.
The popularity of IoT will only see increased data volumes, requiring businesses to invest the time to accurately monitor and analyse trends to get the most out of their IoT infrastructure. Failure to do so will leave organisations with a large vacuum of untapped data and a blind view of IoT operations.

With the Internet of Things (IoT) generating more data than ever before, organisations must seriously consider what edge computing has to offer. According to a study from the International Data Corporation (IDC), 45 percent of all data created by IoT devices will be stored, processed, analysed and acted upon close to or at the edge of a network by 2020.
In a world that is increasingly data-driven, a large amount of data is being generated outside of the traditional data centre. Edge computing places the physical computing infrastructure at the edges of the network where the data is being generated, and in many cases, this is where the data is needed most.
Within the next two years, the amount of smartphone users will reach over 2.87 billion, from 2.57 billion users today. The majority of these users have always-on internet connectivity, providing them the ability to control devices from the palm of their hand, but how does this functionality connect to devices at home or at work?
When your individual devices are secure, the main point of entry into your IoT is going to be through your main network. There are many different methods that you can use to secure your networks against potential threats, but here are a few of the most effective:

5G is set to improve the smartphone experience, making it faster, smoother and more reliable with its high speeds and huge data capacity combined with low latency. However, 5G isn't just about faster smartphones. Heralding a massive technological step up from 4G, 5G will have a far bigger impact for businesses than previous cellular network transitions.
Internet-enabled devices have led to an explosion in the growth of data. On its own, this data has some value, however, the only way to unlock its full potential is by combining it with other data that businesses already hold.
Together, pre-existing data and newly-minted IoT data can provide a full picture of specific insights around a single consumer.
