Is 5G all it’s cracked up to be, what happens to your digital stuff when you die?: Vertical Hold Ep 359

5G is the future of speed, so they say — but are they telling the truth? Meanwhile, you can’t take it with you when you shuffle off this mortal coil, so what happens (or should happen) to your digital goods when you do?

Celebration time at Vertical Hold: Behind The Tech News, because this week we were humbled to win the Best Independent Media Award at the 2021 IT Journo Awards (AKA “The Lizzies”)!

So of course, we’re celebrating by talking about a particularly grim topic, because that’s seemingly how we roll now.

This week, we’re tackling a subject that many might find a little difficult to face — but it’s an important and timely subject to tackle. What happens now — and what should happen — to your digital identity when you shuffle off this mortal coil?

On the more technical (and less grim) side, we also look at the latest 5G speed figures to see where 5G in Australia is excelling — and where a lot more work is needed!

We’re joined this week by Alice Clarke, freelance journalist extraordinaire from the SMH/Age, Finder and Byteside!
