With the race to a 5G data network
nearing its final stretch, you can expect this year's Mobile World Congress
to have a lot to show for it – downloading all the Marvel movies to your phone in minutes, the 'internet of things' where your VR toilet tells your 5G fridge and the AI government that you're eating too many old leftovers, and all that other stuff about the next big leap into the future.
