WEB_DESC:2020 is supposed to be the year of more widely deployed 5G, including for IoT, with more data traffic than ever before. New LEOs and submarine cables promise ever-more extensive broadband (much under the title of "5G") in the world, with attendant promises for IoT and automation. What progress has actually been made, and can we expect the extravagant promises to be met? Will we really get "broadband everywhere" and 5G self-driving cars? Some of the best and brightest will explore those questions, in the context of university research and corporate expectations.
