Today on Bytemarks Café, Burt and Ryan will get an early preview into the world of small cell technology, and the next generation of wireless service. With 5G wireless right around the corner, what new applications will this new technology usher in?


Do you know where your internet comes from? Yesterday on The Conversation we heard about how next-generation 5G wireless networks will eventually come to communities in Hawaii. But those local high-speed networks aren’t worth much without a high-speed connection to the global internet. And that comes from a vast network of undersea cables crisscrossing the globe.
