The first 5G rollout will happen in select US cities by the end of 2018, but nationwide 5G coverage is not expected before 2020.
This is because a robust infrastructure is central to effective 5G deployment. And this new kind of infrastructure mandates that telecom companies divorce their old approaches toward infrastructure development.
