One of the "ecosystem" technologies to watch is 5G.

How exactly it will appear remains to be determined, but it's sufficient to say that it will make wireless data a LOT faster, and probably a lot cheaper -- making streaming and downloading video content a lot more convenient and affordable.

AT&T, Verizon Wireless, and other carriers will start to launch 5G networks next year. But what exactly is 5G? Here's what we know so far.

5G Will Enable Mobile AR/VR

So…what about phones? The biggest change 5G may bring is in virtual and augmented reality. As phones transform into devices meant to be used with VR headsets, the very low latency and consistent speeds of 5G will give you an Internet-augmented world, if and when you want it. Sprint recently demonstrated streaming wireless VR at the Copa America soccer tournament. The small cell aspects of 5G may also help with in-building coverage, as 5G encourages every home router to become a cell site.
