5G cell service starting to feel real

MT. VERNON — Technology makes advancements every day and your cell phone signal is no different. 5G is becoming more of a reality in the modern world but won’t be around anytime soon according to some experts.

Rob Benton owns CPR-Cell Phone Repair in Mt. Vernon and he says the idea has been in development for 2 years and just got finalized this past June.

Although the technology is advancing and the speeds will increase, Benton says if you live in a rural area, don’t count on having 5G available to you for some time.

Benton says realistically, 5G could become available everywhere in 10-20 years.
