Exactly how crazy will 5G be?

San Francisco, CA - Two words explain the difference between our current wireless networks and 5G: speed and latency. 5G—if you believe the hype—is expected to be up to a hundred times faster. (A two-hour movie could be downloaded in less than four seconds.) That speed will reduce, and possibly eliminate, the delay—the latency—between instructing a computer to perform a command and its execution. This, again, if you believe the hype, will lead to a whole new Internet of Things, where everything from toasters to dog collars to dialysis pumps to running shoes will be connected. Remote robotic surgery will be routine, the military will develop hypersonic weapons, and autonomous vehicles will cruise safely along smart highways. The claims are extravagant, and the stakes are high. One estimate projects that 5G will pump twelve trillion dollars into the global economy by 2035, and add twenty-two million new jobs in the United States alone. This 5G world, we are told, will usher in a fourth industrial revolution.
A totally connected world will also be especially susceptible to cyberattacks. Even before the introduction of 5G networks, hackers have breached the control center of a municipal dam system, stopped an Internet-connected car as it travelled down an interstate, and sabotaged home appliances. Ransomware, malware, crypto-jacking, identity theft, and data breaches have become so common that more Americans are afraid of cybercrime than they are of becoming a victim of violent crime. Adding more devices to the online universe is destined to create more opportunities for disruption. “5G is not just for refrigerators,” Spalding said. “It’s farm implements, it’s airplanes, it’s all kinds of different things that can actually kill people or that allow someone to reach into the network and direct those things to do what they want them to do. It’s a completely different threat that we’ve never experienced before.”

San Francisco, CA.   Agreemint , a promising San Francisco based start up, has released it's first ROI study from an early prominent user of Agreemint.com services - a respected government services contractor. Blazar Technology ( located in Denver, CO) had moved over to using Agreemint services for using basic agreements, from a standard word doc process.
"The results were better than I was expecting actually " said Founder/CEO of Agreemint, where there can be shown nearly a 8x speed to close ratio on basic Agreements using the service, or nearly 780% ROI.
"We also saw wonderful traction from our Responder sign ups where if Blazar was initiating on our platform, responders of Blazar were also quick to request access to open and initiate contracts themselves on the platform -- nearly 52% conversion ratio, which is unheard of in SAAS software today".
Here at SVELT.io, we are also users of the platform where we saw similar speed ratios as we work with third party contractors, writers, and other service providers. We are excited to see latest advancements ourselves on the platform
