Since we’re so happy with 4G, the question arises why switch to 5G? Well, this fifth-generation cellular technology can introduce quicker, more secure communication to the ‘Internet of Things’. It’s not just a robust network that connects phones and computers. Infact, we’ll be using it to work robots, automobiles, smart home devices & tech assistants. Hence, 5G is meant to keep up with the proliferation of devices that require a mobile internet connection, similar to 4G and 3G before it. Plus, who minds super fast internet speed.

Why should you switch to 5G?

The fifth generation mobile communication network (5G) is scheduled to be up and running in 2020. It will built on the foundation created by 4G LTE, which makes it easier to switch to 5G. Individuals will be able to send text, make calls, and browse the internet as usual as well as dramatically boost the pace at which information is transmitted across the network.

While some have criticized 5G for its predicted high price, there is broad consensus that the evolving technology will provide consumers with quicker, more reliable connectivity. 5G could even begin a fresh era of “smart cities” where energy networks, traffic signals and emergency services are connected.

Not only will the fifth generation mobile communication network (5G) be faster than the current 4G, it will also have the capacity to revolutionize other industries such as manufacturing, automotive, healthcare, and power. It will allow many industrial settings to move from wired to wireless links. This will decrease installation expenses and make manufacturing procedures more flexible, for instance.

Three reasons why you should choose 5G:

1.Speedy data transfer: The proposed 5G standards would theoretically be 10 times faster than 4G, enabling individuals to rapidly access products on their mobile. It might be helpful if you stream 4 K live TV or a VR app on your mobile device.

“It’s not really made so your videos are going to stream better on Facebook,” said Gartner principal research analyst Bill Menezes. “But to be able to stream television in addition to internet access, in that respect you’ll need 5G — especially to stream 4K ultra-high-definition television.”

2. Quicker response time: 5G would decrease latency or the time needed to transfer information from device to device. This would be particularly crucial for connected systems that require fast response times, such as connected vehicles that may need to knock on breaks or robotic surgery devices where the distinction between life and death could be represented by a millimeter.

“It could enable the ‘tactile internet,’ where the latency is so short when you are doing something you are filling the other end because the feedback is so quick,” Gartner research vice president Mark Hung said.

3. More devices: 5G enables cell towers to support more systems, meaning that hundreds of thousands of web objects can communicate via mobile networks. It would also allow 5G modems clients to connect to the internet at home using cellular networks instead of phone lines or cable modems.

South Korea is testing its 5G network during the upcoming Winter Olympics if you’re curious about what 5G might mean. 5G smartphones are dominating 2019. Qualcomm President Christiano Amon has said that “…every Android vendor is working on 5G right now”. It’s clear that by the end of 2019, we should switch to 5G as it would have well and truly arrived.
