Fiber optic networks are key for the upcoming 5G technology: this was the main message from the recently held "NExsT Telecoms Forum" in New York City. "Creating the Foundation of 5G and IoT" was hosted by Prysmian Group, a world leader in the telecom and energy cable systems industry.

The NExsT event saw the participation of some of the major North American and worldwide telecom operators and independent associations, as well as institutions and regulators. The latest developments in smart cities, 5G, IoT, data centers and FTTx are set to change the world, and the meeting focused around the theme of 5G and related topics such as today's key connectivity, optical fiber and infrastructure issues, what technology, business applications, policies and regulations will need to be in place, product and technology innovation, digital divide and a lot more.

Image - Verizon About to Flip the Switch on 5GVerizon About to Flip the Switch on 5G

Verizon says it'll flip the switch this month on a much-hyped, next-generation "5G" phone network. Service will start in parts of Chicago and Minneapolis. Verizon expects to have 5G in 30 cities this year.

For now, few people will sign on. The offer is available only on unlimited plans, which currently start at $75 for one person or $160 for a family of four without 5G. On family plans, each 5G line would cost $10 extra. And network access will initially work with just one phone, Motorola's Moto Z3, with a special 5G attachment.
