Description

As of today, UBC is the first campus in Canada to be fully outfitted with 5G wireless technology.

“The purpose of the installation on our campus is to look into how 5G will be used in the future,” said Dr. Gail Murphy, UBC’s vice-president, research and innovation. “We are not at this moment focusing on how people on campus can use it at their will, we are looking at projects that make use of the technology and try and understand some of its boundaries.”
