    Sprint to Test 4K Over 5G Network

    I don't usually post much about cellular companies, but I thought this was interesting.

    Sprint has announced they will run a 4K trial via their new 5G network. This summer the provider will stream the 2016 Copa America Football (Soccer) Tournament in 4K. CEO Marcelo Claure said as part of the network's "optimization plan" for the network, they would provide coverage at two different stadiums this June.

    “We are participating in the development of the global 5G standard, and we’re collaborating with our partners and other companies on the 5G opportunity,” said Claure.
    This marks a first for not only Sprint, but also the tournament itself. This will be the first year that the tournament will be held outside of South America. This year, it will be spread among 10 US cities starting with USA vs Columbia on June 3, in Santa Clara, California and ending with the Finals on June 26, in East Rutherford New Jersey.

    Other cities include Chicago, Foxborough, Glendale, Houston, Orlando, Pasadena, Philadelphia, and Seattle.

    I wonder if this trial will count against your data plan?
