Yesterday Sprint and Intel announced plans to release laptops with 5G internet in 2019. They are in addition to a growing list of partners planning to release laptops with 5G including Microsoft, Dell, HP, Acer, Asus, and Lenovo.
This has been one of the dreams of 5G: instead of needing a router in your home now you can just log in to your Sprint account on your laptop and have internet at home, work, and anywhere you can get a 5G signal.
Later this year 5G is starting to roll out across the United States. By 2020, Dish, Verizon, AT&T, Charter, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Google are all planning on launching 5G networks in over half of the United States.
5G is designed primarily to be used for home internet with mobile devices being a secondary thought. The network is built to handle more devices and be far faster than current 4G systems. Someday it is possible that all the devices you buy—from a Roku to a TV—will all come with 5G built in instead of Wi-Fi. All you will need to do is log in to your account and you have internet even when you are away from home.
For now, though most Americans will need to wait until 2019 and 2020 for 5G home internet.
