I think that 5G is a better wireless and it is to be defined but also not only is it a higher-performance capability, I think more ubiquitous will be part of the story, but also tailoring connectivity to particular requirements. So for some of the Internet-of-Things applications, they are quite low speed, hundreds of Kbps. For a fixed-wireless link to a mobile-base station, you might want 10 Gbps. It will not wait until 2022: it is happening now. Operators are investing in networks now, in the sense of getting them ready for 5G by making them denser, and so on. So it is a continuous process, it is not a step change into 2022.
