Optimizing the infrastructure of the future
5G is poised to redefine the future of how we interact, how we build technology and even the way we imagine what’s possible. If you think the pace of innovation is moving fast now, wait until 5G is ingrained in our everyday lives. 5G is the most transformative technology since the internet.

What to Expect
5G is the 5th generation of radio frequencies that can transmit data. The 5G signal transmits information at such a high frequency that it allows us to connect better than any other generation before it. To anyone who is not familiar with the technology, this means faster phone data without even connecting to Wi-Fi and download speeds of just seconds. It will be some time before the service will be available to the public at large, but will launch in some major cities later this year.
We work directly with telecommunications companies to engineer the infrastructure through which this incredible new era of connectivity will be ushered in. How the new equipment will be integrated with existing structures will play a major role in making this a reality for people throughout Canada and the world, and we're just thrilled to be a part of making it all happen. We can wait to see what new innovation comes from that advancement of 5G. It's even going to change the way we think about the world and how people connect.
We can't wait to see what comes next.
This really is big news on a global scale, and we hope you're all as excited as we are. It will improve the way we communicate, the way we conduct business, and in general, the way we live our lives. Here are what some of the more prominent media outlets are saying.
CNNCompanies are racing to have the fastest or largest 5G networks. And countries are competing to be the first to deploy fully functional, nationwide 5G, because of the many revolutionary innovations experts anticipate will be built on top of it.
CBCThe first is connectivity, which means the number of devices that can communicate with each other. By 2020 between 50 billion and 100 billion devices worldwide are expected to be connected to the internet. Just imagine what would happen on today's networks if they all tried to get online at once.
UWRogers Communications and the University of Waterloo today announced a three-year, multimillion dollar partnership agreement to advance 5G research in the Toronto-Waterloo tech corridor. Together they will create the first 5G smart campus in central Canada
