Whereas next- or same-day delivery services transformed the way people shopped at the height of the pandemic, there’s a new kid in town: companies that will deliver an order in under 20 minutes. While the services have made it to densely populated urban areas in the United States, the market is particularly booming in the United Kingdom.

Plus: The Weekly Wrap, a sky-high battle for 5G and a Black Friday look at consumer spending.
