As the world becomes more digitally intertwined, competition between its major economies grows more combative, as evidenced by the US-China trade battles and legal actions. No sector is more impacted than frontline information and communications technology, in which much of today’s warfare between the two heavyweights rages.

5G digital cellular network technology is one step up from 4G and LTE, so what’s the big deal? A lot, apparently, as 5G promises to deliver speeds 200 times greater than LTE.

As a long-term bet, anyway, 5G looks like a shoo-in.
