The pandemic has drastically changed how the world works and interacts – both digitally and physically. Changes, such as telehealth, remote work and hybrid schooling, have granted many benefits, but have also widened the accessibility gap as nation-wide connectivity remains unachieved. Luckily, emerging technologies, such as 5G, provide a solution.
5G has already begun to improve industries, including healthcare through expanded access to telemedicine – crucial in the fight against COVID-19. As 5G continues to roll out to communities across the globe, reliable, readily available, fast broadband will open a whole new world of possibilities for even more industries. Scanlan will speak to these opportunities and the imminent benefits of 5G implementation.
