US Fastest Migration For 5G
5G is already on the rise so I'm sure that there will more from this to come in the near furure and years from now whether it is good or bad. I think that a lot of people will be on baord with this because what I've realized that most of the population there are mainly followers and not enough leaders to lead the right way for all of us.

Speed v. Accuracy
With all the bumps in the road to 5G, I think having the best 5G would be more important than the soonest. The hype has really begun to die down about it, and I don't think having it at all would be enough of a novelty to consumers at this point to drive widespread adoption of a spotty product.

Re: Speed v. Accuracy
Absolutely, having best 5G is the first thing that is required. We have seens their 2018  plans from major carriers. They named cities that they have in traget for 2018 i which they plan to roll out 5G. That is a good move in this direction.

Re: Speed v. Accuracy
@Shaunn - You're exactly right. It's far more important for a company to get 5G right than it is for them to be first. Though I'm not entirely sure it's going to make a huge difference for any company, unless someone just totally blows it. I'm sure they will all be on stage with similar timing and quality. And most people will probably just stick with whatever carrier they have typically used. You might see some crossover, but I think most people are so used to their status quo that changing won't happen en masse, in general.

Re: US Fastest Migration For 5G
I think a lot of the time itís easier and quicker for people to rely on other people opinion on things. Rather than try and figure it out for themselves. A sad reality, but Iím hopeful for more leaders in the future.

market and culture
I suspect part of this is the strength of the market players combined with culture.

The big Chinese telcos, which are state-run, can afford to take their time to get things just right before nudging customers along. In the US, however, we Americans are staunchly opposed to change -- and it takes industry titans to essentially force that change on us. (Visa had to exert tremendous force to get the country on EMV chips -- and we're still swiping the stripe here and there.)

@ms.a: Don't expect much for 5G deployments this year. The next round of 3GPP releases won't be out until around 2020.

Re: market and culture
The massive scale of Chinese telcos can make some instant standards for various services. I'm really wondering what the first Chinese telco app to "out-innovate" an American company will be. Perhaps it's already happened with China's WeChat and integrated services.

Re: Speed v. Accuracy
First to market is no guarantee for dominance, for sure. Apple has consistently been "late" to the market with several new "features" but it still seems to somehow hold the title for leading the market in consumer gadgets. Maybe not for long, but it's shown that it can be done. And fashion doesn't always have to be first.

@Joe. S:

Really? How about the target cities that couple of major providers announced for mid 2018? I vaguely recollect seeing atleast eight cities targeted.
