Verizon Wireless today said it plans to trial 5G technology in 11 U.S. markets later this year. This "pre-commercial service" will be offered to a very limited number of customers and not necessarily made available to consumers. The tests will involve the 5GTF spec Verizon developed past year. The trial markets include Ann Arbor, Atlanta, Bernardsville, Brockton, Dallas, Denver, Houston, Miami, Sacramento, Seattle, and Washington, D.C. Verizon competitors AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint are each testing their own variants of potential 5G technologies. The actual 5G spec has yet to be defined by the International Telecommunications Union, but carriers and telecom equipment makers around the world are hoping their technologies will be included in the final standard.

Deja Vu again?

We can already expect Sprint to choose the one that nobody else goes with (WiMax). Then spend millions of dollars and years implementing it, while hemorrhaging customers again. To only rip it out and go with whatever the mainstream choice seems to be, and be 3-7 additional years behind the curve. Or Pai just endorses them to merge with T-Mobile, and they destroy not just one, but two carriers in the process..
You are for the most part right. Just one thing? What does this have to do with Verizon's 5G test cities?
