Are you ready for faster, better, stronger connectivity. Read more about 5G Technology to see what the future holds for mobile communication.

What is 5G?

5G Technology is simply put, an upgrade from the 4G LTE network our smartphones and tablets make use of today. Much like upgrades in technology and other sectors, 5G is expected to perform better than its predecessors and provide a better user experience for all smart technology users.

5G is expected to improve our personal and professional lives with its faster connectivity and its ability to connect to more devices than ever before. 5G will also be the catalyst to new tech products on the market, with technology stirring innovation to facilitate the modern human’s life. While 5G networks have been rolling out in the US and some other countries across the globe since 2018, the potential for this technology is huge and has not yet reached its peak.

Why 5G?

Getting hold of the fastest and largest 5G network is on every big player’s mind in the communication sector and beyond. Entire countries are even fighting their way to become the first area to produce nationwide 5G Technology. This haste is mostly due to the fact that with 5G Technology comes innovations that could give a huge number of industries the leap they needed; hence boosting the economy and the county’s well-being.

What are the benefits of 5G Technology?

Well, it all depends on how you look at it. If you’re the type of user who looks for speed in services, seamless connectivity, faster connection and upload time and overall ‘no-fuss’ smartphone usage; the chances are that you’re going to think quite highly of 5G Technology.

From connectivity with self-driving cars, to uninterrupted connectivity, virtually instant server connections and even speed-perfect cloud interaction, the main benefit of 5G Technology is the speed at which it works.

How does 5G work?

The ins and outs of 5G Technology are pretty simple. This technology basically works on a system of radio frequencies that require updating radios on cell towers. Most telephony and communications providers have their own tower systems scattered across their hosting countries to provide a broader range.

There are 3 different methods to build a 5G network, this has a lot to do with the type of wireless carrier – either low-band network, high-band network and mid-bank network. In order to provide a superfast 5G service, carriers must install small cell sites to light poles, towers and other stationery and fixed objects within close proximity to one another. This is what makes the technology so fast.

How fast will 5G Technology be?

Think 10 times faster than 4G LTE, and seeing as 4G is not too slow; that’s pretty fast!  But of course, the age old disclaimer still stands that download speeds will be dependent on location and network traffic. So while some experts say that the technology could be up to 100 times faster, whether the user gets that 10% faster increase may also be doubtful.

Making use of 5G Technology will be possible through modern smartphone technology available on the market. As the technology improves so will the devices and this will create improved products across the board. 5G Technology could revolutionise the way we work and entertain ourselves on our smartphones and tablets.
