Walmart and Verizon are currently working together on adding 5G capabilities to retail locations. Two locations are expected to receive 5G capabilities this year. The increased connectivity would help Walmart in its efforts to implement digital health solutions at retail stores. Digital health solutions could allow doctors and patients to talk using video chats, as well as easily share live medical data.
The collaboration is mutually beneficial, as Walmart would be able to launch digital medial services, which could be an added source of revenue for the company. The partnership could also help Verizon, as the organization is looking to sell 5G technology to other companies that may require an enhanced connection.
