Everything you need to know about 5G Network

5G networks are the next generation of mobile internet connectivity, offering faster speeds and more reliable connections on smartphones and other devices than ever before.

Combining cutting-edge network technology and the very latest research, 5G should offer connections that are multitudes faster than current connections, with average download speeds of around 1GBps expected to soon be the norm.

Everything you need to know about 5G Network

With development well underway, 5G networks are expected to launch across the world by 2020, working alongside existing 3G and 4G technology to provide speedier connections that stay online no matter where you are.

How do we benefit from 5G Networks?
🔄Faster download and upload speeds
🔄Smoother streaming of online content
🔄Higher-quality voice and video calls
🔄More reliable mobile connections
🔄Greater number of connected IoT devices
🔄An expansion of advanced technologies – including self-driving cars and smart cities

What will the Speed be like?

The networks should provide a significant upgrade to current download and upload speeds – with the GSMA proposing minimum download speeds of around 1GBps. Most estimates expect the average speed of 5G networks to reach 10Gb/s, and some even think transfer rates could reach a whopping 800Gb/s.

This would mean that users could download a full-length HD quality film in a matter of seconds and that downloading and installing software upgrades would be completed much faster than today.

How will Smartphones get 5G?

Existing smartphones, tablet or other devices that were released when 4G networks were the standard may not be able to connect to 5G, to begin with, or may incur extra costs to do so.

However, following the 2020 deadline for the initial rollout, we should soon see devices coming with 5G connection as default.

5G should link in with existing networks to ensure users never lose connection, with the older networks acting as a back-up in areas not covered by the new 5G coverage.

So-called “4.5G” networks (also known as LTE-A) are set to fill the gap, for the time being, offering connections that are faster than current 4G networks, although only certain countries such as South Korea can benefit from them right now.

Once launched, however, implementing 5G may be a slower process. Much like the gradual takeover of 4G networks from the previous generation, existing network infrastructure may need to be upgraded or even replaced in order to deal with the new technology, and homes and businesses may also need to get new services installed.

It’s not yet known how 5G networks will take over from existing networks, but again, much like the rollout of 4G, you may not be able to immediately connect to the new networks without upgrading your technology.
