Smart City Progress and the Promise of 5G

The Smart Gigabit Communities program, which launched in 2015 as a collaboration between US Ignite, a public-private nonprofit that seeks to accelerate the smart city movement, and the NSF (National Science Foundation), aims to help partner cities as they move toward their smart-city goals. The program includes 27 participating communities and provides access to a low-latency and ultra-fast network with local cloud computing and storage capabilities that support “highly interactive and visually immersive experiences not possible on today’s commercial internet.”
