Technology is rapidly changing and transforming our lives. Adapting to the latest technology is getting harder for us as it was before. Every day we encounter so many updates whether it is related to our mobile, car, tv, or any other device. When 4G was launched, it enabled people around the world to watch their favorite programs on their mobiles faster than ever before. It could process large amount of data. Now, the speed of the internet will get faster with 5G.
5G is the fifth generation of mobile wireless system that will enable devices to communicate with each other faster and better and without need to plugin into a wall. With 5G we can expect more driverless cars, and even we see getting rid of Wi-Fi in our homes and offices. Many big companies like Verizon, AT&T, Nokia, and Samsung are investing heavily in the development of this technology.
When it comes to cellular technology, people are more interested in coverage, responsiveness, and speed. It is claimed that 5G enables speed grow by 1GB per second. This speed is better than current cellular connections and even better than fiber optic cable speed. With this speed, you’ll be able to download seasons in seconds.
However, 5G is not about speed only. It has many other benefits as well. One of the main benefits users will enjoy is the low latency rate. Latency is a term that refers to the response time when someone clicks a link or want to open a website. We often want to open websites and play music or video fast. The current latency rate is 20 milliseconds, which is fast enough but with 5G, it can reduce 20 milliseconds to just 1 millisecond which is super-fast. We can resemble speed with flash of a camera.
With that much speed, companies and individuals will be able to control and perform tasks using robots distantly. It makes it easy to play intense video games. The better coverage of 5G will enable self-driving cars to communicate easily.
However, the use of 5G is not limited to mobile networks only. It was first aimed to benefit businesses but now everyone will use the 5G network. It will also work on devices that don’t need a constant connection.
5G is not fully launched yet. It has been partially launched in US, UK, and some other countries. As far as mobiles are concerned, we can expect large 5G supported mobiles in 2020. However, there are rumors of health issues with the use of such a high-frequency network but studies are going on this issue.
