What does latency mean and what does it mean for 5G?

Latency is the time it takes to respond to a request for action. This ultra-short latency time will be very important in the future use of 5G, such as in remote surgery for example.
The 5G network response time will be in the range of a few milliseconds, well below the 10 to 40 milliseconds with existing 4G.
