As 5G networks roll out across the U.S. market, the technology could revolutionize B2B communication at a fundamental level, thanks to vastly greater data transmission rates, massive capacity, dramatic reduction in latency, mission-critical capability, network slicing and private deployment options. Of course, with any revolution, there are winners and losers.
