5G is a new kind of network designed to connect virtually everyone and everything – machines, objects, and devices. 5G wireless technology was designed to deliver higher data speeds, better reliability, a massive network capacity, increased availability, and a more uniform user experience for more users. Higher performance and improved efficiency allow new users to experience and connect a wide variety of industries.
How is 5G better than 4G?
- 5G is much faster than 4G: 5G can deliver up to 20 Gigabits-per-second (Gbps) peak data rates and 100+ Megabits-per-second (Mbps) average data rates.• 5G offers more capacity than 4G: 5G can support a 100x increase in traffic and network efficiency.
- 5G provides lower latency than 4G: 5G’s lower latency delivers instant, real-time access.
- 5G is more capable than 4G: 5G is a unified, highly capable platform that elevates mobile broadband experiences and supports new services such as mission-critical communications and a massive IoT.
- 5G uses spectrum more efficiently than 4G: 5G gets the most out of every bit of spectrum including the wide array of available spectrum regulatory paradigms and bands.
What can 5G do for me?
5G can transform our lives in many ways, including providing faster download speeds, low latency, more capacity, and connectivity for billions of devices. For example, with 5G, you will have access to new and improved experiences including nearly instantaneous access to cloud services, improved shopping experiences, multiplayer cloud gaming, real-time video translation, and more. 5G has also been designed for forward compatibility—the ability to support future services that we cannot even imagine today.
Will 5G change my home internet service?
5G can provide a wireless modem alternative to existing wires without losing availability or speed. Internet Service Providers (ISPs) can offer customers the impressive 5G infrastructure, which makes coverage, performance, and installation significantly easier and more attractive than fiber, DSL, or cabled solutions.
Is 5G available now?
Yes, 5G is available in many places worldwide! Some major Android phone manufacturers are already commercializing 5G phones. Before long, even more people will have access to 5G.
Do I need a new phone if I want 5G?
You will need to upgrade to a new smartphone that supports 5G if you want access to the network. There are several newer mobile phone models available that are designed to support 5G, and several carriers across the world support the 5G wireless network.
