Samsung's 5G flagship will be the first meaningful push for 5G phones in many countries, but the only thing we knew about its path to the United States was that it would first come to Verizon sometime before summer. The date for April 5 was selected to start the first 5G service.

Initially, the carrier's 5G network was expected to go live on April 11 in Chicago and Minneapolis, but it activated it earlier in certain parts of the two cities.

The latest rumor about the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G comes from prolific leak artist Evan Blass.

This network complements Verizon's existing "5G Home" service which launched in October in select areas and is a wireless alternative to a traditional cable-based home internet connection, but does not work far beyond the walls of your home. "We are proud of the work we've accomplished to bring our first 5G smartphone to market and look forward to bringing it to everyone around the world in the coming year".

While the competition over the publicity on 5G network is intense, mobile technology experts warn that the launch of 5G service is only a beginning. Regular customers in capital Seoul and some other major cities will be able to sign up for 5G services starting on Friday. Its speed will be 20 times faster than the 4G and it will allow customers to download the whole movie in less than a second.

Mueller Investigators Say Final Report Contains Damaging Evidence
Meanwhile, the president and his allies have continued to tout Barr's summary of the Mueller report as a "total exoneration". The committee rejected a GOP amendment that would have 24-17 blocked the subpoenas from applying to grand jury information.

Sometimes it can offer 100-times faster speeds.

SK Telecom is working with its memory-chip making affiliate SK Hynix to build a highly digitised and connected factory powered by 5G technology, Ryu said. It has a total of 27 million users.

So if you're a Verizon customer with a Moto Z3 in some really specific parts of two specific cities, you can have 5G in the USA right now.

Full-fledged nationwide 5G service is still more than a year away.

"I don't think we have a security issue in South Korea", Park Jin-hyo, head of SK Telecom's information and communication tech research centre, told reporters. Smaller carrier LG Uplus Corp uses Huawei gear.
