Re: 3 years
@dcawrey Austin is one of those up-and-coming cities. Last year, there was this report on it http://austininno.streetwise.co/2016/01/04/austin-tech-jobs-ranking-best-cities-for-hiring-in-2016/: "Austin's population growth, fueled by its economic progress, made it the fastest growing big city in 2015. And in a new analysis by WalletHub, it's the third best city in the nation to find a job in 2016."

AT&T Boots Up 5G Trial in Austin With DirecTV Now Customers
As I was reading this article I was interested because you don't see much of this, it's also cool to see technology working like this and giving trials but I can't wait for the update 5G. It will be awsome to see the way this works out for everyone. I hope it's a big success because everyone likes the newest updates with technology. I believe it will be great to have 5G.

Very cool to see these projects moving forward. 

In addition, Austin is a perfect city for this technology. Its population is young and tech savvy. I'm sure AT&T will learn a bunch from its experience there.

@mhhf1ve - great points!  I believe that 5G will deliver enough new value to truly drive and sustain these developments.

Re: 3 years
Rome wasn't built in a day.. and neither will widespread 5G coverage be. It's just not that easy/cheap to roll out. Maybe if the spectrum licensing wasn't connected to billion-dollar auctions, there might be more funds to shift into the actual hardware deployment? :P

Re: 3 years
@Ariella I am with you, I feel like 3 years is a long time, especially since we've been talking about it for over a year now. I guess you can't rush progress and it is one of those things that will happen when it happens and we will look back and think it wasn't all that long of a wait.

Re: 3 years
@DHagar - And we're not even mentioning that fiber deployments will be necessary to support the 5G wireless backhaul.. without the underlying fiber infrastructure, there will be no place for the wireless traffic to go! So 3 years is actually quite quick, even for a partial deployment.

Re: 3 years
@mhhf1ve - I am with you on this assessment.  These are rapid developments and deployment of the new technology and solutions 5G offers. 

Their leadership and partnerships are truly going to advance the markets and the solutions.  I believe they will contribute greatly to the adoption of 5G and markets still developing fiber will shift to 5G.

Re: 3 years
Three years isn't actually that long... It's taken a similar amount of time for 3G to transition through the various incarnations of 4G and LTE wireless standards.

There are still a lot of new cell towers to deploy for 5G! At least this is faster than fiber deployments! (which happen slowly, if at all...)

With these speeds, fiber won't ever be deployed in many locations.
