5G And What You Need To Know

It’s here, the fifth-generation of mobile internet connectivity which will provide you with faster data speeds,  shorter delays and increased connectivity.

The 5G Network is the name currently being given to the fifth generation of mobile data connectivity, succeeding 4G.

It will provide broadband speeds that we had not thought yet imaginable, but more importantly, it will have enough capacity wherever you go to perform every function you want it to without a drop in speed or connection, no matter how many people are connected at the same time.

What is 5G?

5G is the name currently being given to the next generation of mobile data connectivity, succeeding 4G.

It will provide broadband speeds that we had not thought yet imaginable, but more importantly, it will have enough capacity wherever you go to perform every function you want it to without a drop in speed or connection, no matter how many people are connected at the same time.

When will 5G become available?

The Samsung Galaxy S10 5G will be the first 5G phone commercially available to Australians on plans exclusively from Telstra from May 28th 2019.

However, due to the costs of the new technology the industry has predicted that 5G won’t take off with most consumers until 2020. 5G will be revolutionary, but it won’t come cheap. Some companies are optimistic that over time 5G will ultimately work out cheaper for both themselves and their consumers (once paired with the new devices expected to come online).

5G intelligence

By the year 2020, it is predicted by analysts that there will be 50 billion devices connected to the Internet worldwide. These devices will range from smartphones, tablets, to home appliances, cars, and beyond!

Devices that are connected to the Internet will require significant data to be used while others may need a small amount. The 5G systems will understand and recognise this and allocate bandwidth respectively, thereby not putting unnecessary strain on individual connection points.

Developing 5G

The Tech world has been developing 5G technology for years with 5G technology reportedly to be the most reliable network connection that we have ever seen before. 5G is more than the “next step” for your internet connection, because the connection speeds alone are much faster than the speeds you could ever expect from a 4G LTE connection, not to mention far beyond anything your home broadband was ever capable of. However, 5G isn’t being developed to merely provide consumers with a speedier internet connection. 5G networks will also have a much larger capacity to handle mobile networks.

The larger mobile data capacity allows for the supported connection of copious amounts of data from mobile networks without crashing or buffering like current networks do when they become overloaded with multitudes of mobile data connections. According to the Union standards for international communications, 5G networks are required to be able to support a million devices per square kilometer. During development of the technology, download speeds of up to 5 gigabits per second have been reported by Qualcomm in their first 5G modem. The 5G modem was compared to the fastest recorded 4G LTE download speeds which average 19.42 Megabytes per second in the U.S and the speed was 257 times slower and it can only better from here.

It has been established the 5G is going to be faster and it will obviously be an asset to mobile phone users, yet 5G is going to be capable of so much more. In this modern age, almost everything relies on technology and network connections. Home appliances can be hooked up to your Wi-Fi now, not to mention the myriad of accessories being released every year that have technological features and internet capabilities.

Benefits of 5G

Faster speed: Data transfer speeds are projected to be about 10 times higher with 5G than is possible with 4G. That means significantly faster transmission of images and videos. With 4G/LTE, downloading a high-definition movie might take about 10 minutes. With 5G, it should take less than a second.

Shorter delays: One common frustration with mobile phone users is if there is a lag time when using their mobile device. 5G will reduce this, making it possible, for example, to watch high-speed videos on your device with no delays or glitches.

Increased connectivity: Cell towers equipped with 5G technology will have greatly increased capacity over 4G/LTE which means more people and more devices will be able to communicate at the same time.
