5G’s lightning-fast network speeds are coming, and many cities are hoping to be the first in line. Dallas; Waco, Texas; and Atlanta will be among the first cities to receive AT&T’s 5G mobile network, while Sacramento, Calif., is slated to be Verizon’s first pick to get the fifth-generation wireless technology.
Wireless carriers are in a race to deliver 5G to households. AT&T has been among the first major mobile carriers to name specific cities that will receive mobile 5G by the end of the year. Just how fast is 5G? It’s said to be 100 times faster and five times more responsive than the current 4G and 4G LTE, the technology currently being used on smartphones and wireless devices. You’ll be able to stream high-resolution VR content without any lag time—for example, a typical download might take 30 seconds on 5G compared to 6 minutes on 4G—and the technology is expected to a foster a more efficient and seamless era of smart-home technology and interconnected devices.
But there’s a caveat to 5G: You’ll need a 5G-capable device to take advantage of it, and there are currently no smartphones on the market that are available with 5G hardware—yet. AT&T expects 5G-ready devices to reach the market this year and in early 2019.Intel announced this weekin partnerships with several PC makers—including Dell, HP, Lenovo, and Microsoft—that it plans to launch 5G laptops by late 2019. Until then, some tech experts are recommending consumers wait to upgrade their devices if they want to take advantage of the new wireless technology.

You’ve heard of buyer’s remorse; but without your market expertise
"After deciding to move to Denver from NYC, my father and I decided to spend our vacation in Denver back in August, for the purpose of beginning the search for a new home. My father and I contacted Marc, and he made what we thought would be a long, drawn out process seem relatively easy. Before we knew it, my father and I owned a home by the time we finished our vacation in nine days.
Marc was very professional, knowledgeable, courteous, patient and an all-around great person. He took the time to educate us, as we were first time home owners, and show us all around the Denver metro area. He also continues to follow up with us after the sale, which we really appreciate. I highly recommend Marc for your relocation needs.
