The 5G revolution will change the way we live, work, and play. Whereas 4G connected people in new ways, 5G will connect devices in ways that were once unthinkable. New 5G networks will support more devices across industries, including healthcare, education and transportation, improving the livability of our urban environments.
The 5G revolution will enable innovations in healthcare that make us healthier. For instance, rather than an annual physical, which only tests patients at one moment in time, a new barometer for health might become the accumulation and sharing of health data over the course of the year via wearables. An ultra-high speed 5G network could enable a variety of remote care options: mobile ultra-sound devices to diagnose patients; at-home EKG machines to instantly share heart readings with cardiologists; and remote surgery. These innovations improve efficiency, reduce costs, increase access, and improve outcomes.
The coronavirus has brought the digital divide into stark relieve. Eighteen percent of Boston households do not have a home internet subscription and those from underserved communities are more likely to rely on a mobile device to get online. The 5G revolution will increase accessibility to remote learning and enable new virtual classrooms as Massachusetts school districts plan for the long-term use of virtual instruction. With 5G, technologies like VR will deliver high quality, immersive instruction.
Although we come from a variety of industries and businesses both large and small, all members of the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce can appreciate the benefits of 5G. Transportation, healthcare, and education are just a few examples of how better connectivity will spur innovation across industries and improve quality of life. The future Boston truly is 5G.
