Meta vice president Dan Rabinovitsj (Dan Rabinovitsj) said at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) technology event. Current home networks and mobile cellular networks are not ready for the “metaverse,” and the company’s ambitions to build a “metaverse” won’t be possible without significant improvements in today’s telecom networks. “We’re working closely with our colleagues to think about the next steps in innovation,” he said, adding that Meta is also working with cellular partners.
“If you look closely at the speed of innovation in the telecom industry, it’s more difficult to move faster in this space than in other markets,” said Rabinowitz. The company credits its Oculus virtual reality headset. The device is the user’s gateway to a new “metaverse” experience. But getting this experience requires lower network latency and higher transfer speeds.
