There are many questions that people wonder about, and we will try to answer them in order fo you to be well prepared when 5G is implemented in 2020.
Most of the people will ask things which point to the hazards of the installation of this fifth generation of mobile Internet, but there are also people who would like to know more facts about the real change each of us should make in order to be able to use this technology.
How faster is 5G?
5G networks are 20 times faster than the present one, 4G. This means that you can download Lord of the Rings in the time it takes for Gandalf to say ‘You shall not pass!’ that is really fast, right?
Will I need a new phone to use 5G?
Yes, you will need a new smartphone which will support 5G technology. You will be able to use your old smartphone which supports 4G technology until you decide which one you will buy and until the operators launch the best versions of their 5G compatible smartphones. Motorola and Samsung have already launched their 5G compatible smartphones, and Apple will do that only after 5G implementation in 2020.
Where can I use 5G today?
Countries are getting ready for the full implementation of 5G technology, and in the USA you can use it in Atlanta, Denver, and Washington. At first, 5G usage maybe will be limited with only certain neighborhoods getting access. You will have to be patient about this one.
5G other benefits
Factory owners can use it to control their robots. Farmers can use it to keep tabs on smart tractors. Carmakers say it is a key technology for self-driving cars, helping those vehicles to talk to each other about road conditions, hazards and etc. and there is a whole new world that this technology will bring to us, and we cannot foresee them all, because some of them we believe will be invented on the way.
