Verizon starts testing 5G wireless in the field

The tests come just as Verizon is co-founding the 5G Open Trial Specification Alliance, an attempt to form a common spec for 5G testing that gets it off the ground. This isn’t the same as forming a true 5G standard (that’s up to the 3GPP group), but it should help more test runs take place between now and 2018. – Jon Fingas, Engadget
