Light Reading’s Editorial Director for 5G & Mobile Strategies, Mike Dano, joined Carolyn and Jen to talk about the most interesting stories developing in the mobile broadband sector, including an assessment of what the most compelling 5G use case might be. Our key takeaways:

  1. Future spectrum needs will include Consumer devices and enterprise solutions not yet on the market that will drive continued demand for more licensed, exclusive use spectrum. One example of a 5G “iPhone” moment could be developments around augmented reality and AR-capable eyewear/screens.
  2. Keep an eye on Dish Network as its CEO attempts to persuade the FCC to change the terms of use in 12 GHz to enable DISH to provide terrestrial 5G services. 
  3. The ability of T-Mobile to use its 2.5 GHz licenses for its core 5G network is potentially in doubt as competitors and investors go after the licenses T-Mobile has been using but does not own.
