  • It's unclear which country struck first, but Verizon has launched 5G wireless service in parts of Chicago and Minneapolis, while carriers in South Korea - SK Telecom (NYSE:SKM) and KT Corp. (NYSE:KT) - deployed their service in the Seoul metropolitan area.
  • To access the network, Verizon subscribers for now will be limited to the Motorola Z3 (with accessory clip-on), while Korean early adopters will have to use Samsung's Galaxy S10.
  • 4G helped reshape the way people hail taxis and order takeout and the mobile industry is hoping the faster speeds provided by 5G will enable self-driving cars, smart cities and birth immersive digital worlds.
