Re: Speed of Light Limitations
All I'm saying is that despite what anyone is "planning for", the speed of light is immutable. Despite what anyone says, it will not change, and it doesn't matter what any fanciful standards writers "envision". As designers bump up against that limit, the costs go higher, higher, and higher. I read another interesting conversation on this site about latency. This concerned electronic financial trading, where milliseconds can mean millions. The gripe was about how the big players will be able to afford communications that will be a few milliseconds faster than the rest of us, giving them an unstoppable advantage in high-speed trading. Now, there's something for standards writers and regulators to mull over.

Re: Fostering an ADD culture of the future
@Todder – I don't think we will have a time when you get something you want as soon as you click a button. When speed increases sites carry high resolution images and video to attract customers.

Re: Speed of Light Limitations
@Gary – Thanks for the figures, yes light travels much faster in a vacuum. Do you think this would be much faster than 5G.

Re: Connect all the things!
Faster speed means you will now finish your data plan soon. Larger data plans will surely have high prices.

@ Stratustician – Having 5G will be great for both personal and business use. 5G will always help cloud based services to further expand.

Fostering an ADD culture of the future
I click a button and nothing shows up in a second and WHOOSH! I'm off pressing another virtual button only to be disappointed that my desires aren't served immediately.

Doesn't this sound just a little insane?

While IoT sounds all dreamy to the geekdom, fact is ROI will trump a lot of the dreamer's wishes.

Speed of Light Limitations
The speed of light in a vacuum is 186,000 miles per second. 1 millisecond? That's 186 miles. And that's one way, and it doesn't even begin to consider any data processing time. In addition, light travels somewhat slower through fiber optic cable. The one set of laws NOBODY can ignore are the laws of physics

Meanwhile Net Neutrality is still a factor
5G to infinity and beyond will be a pipe dream if former cable lobbyist Wheeler and now chief of the FCC lets the internet service providers install speed bumps and toll roads.  Anyone not having the deep pockets of the corporatocracy will effectively be shut out and only those with the jack to afford the fastlane will be able to compete.

Connect all the things!
While I love the idea that 5G will bring faster speeds and better data streams to enable next generation devices, I personally hope this technology comes with better ways to bill users for data usage.  I can see one of the biggest delays for really utilizing IoT and other data driven devices being from consumers who don't want to add data hogs to their mobile data plans.
