5G is here now – at least in some places – and its impact on industry clusters will be intense.
5G rollout plans by AT&T, Sprint and others will have a dramatic effect on which geographic areas are at a technology advantage versus those that are at a clear disadvantage. 5G services impact IoT, AR, VR, Big Data, and other internet platform and cloud technologies that, in turn, will impact most every industry.
At Industry Building Blocks (IBB) we estimate that 5G technologies will significantly impact at least 7,000 of the top 20,000 global industries. And for the Southern Tier NY region, we estimate 15 of our top 20 industry clusters will be negatively impacted by the delay our (rural and hilly) area will endure because we are not on the 5G big-city rollout lists.
Note to AT&T and Verizon – help us, please!
