5G is the next generation of mobile broadband that augments your connection

5G is the 5th generation of cellular network technology. The industry association 3GPP defines any system using "5G NR" software as, "5G", a definition that came into general use by late 2018. Others may reserve the term for systems that meet the requirements of the ITU IMT-2020.

5G is the next generation of mobile broadband. This will eventually replace, or at least augment your 4G LTE connection. You can sure get faster download and upload speeds with 5G. Latency (the time it takes devices to communicate with each other's wireless networks) will decrease.

The value of 5G comes from its ability to use a much wider spectrum at higher frequencies. Although, as these frequencies heighten, the ability to penetrate material (like through walls) decreases. Current 4G technology mostly operates on the 700 MHz band of the spectrum.

5G is what carriers are currently building as the next generation after 4G LTE. Whatever comes after 5G will likely be called 6G. So far, 6G exists mostly as a theoretical concept.

5G will improve your network connection dramatically. You will not have to deal with disruptions when sharing videos from crowded places. High-quality videos on your newsfeed will not cause frustration from all the buffering. You will get a faster, more stable and more secure connection. New services could come with this. You will enjoy better performance than ever before.


  1. Qualcomm President says that by 2020, all major carriers will have 5G. They are at the beginning of the new technology transition. The new phones are coming soon. Qualcomm produces modems and chips for smartphones. 5G will require everyone to retire their 4G phones for ones with 5G capabilities.

  2. Verizon will have more 5g capabilities soon. In September 2018, Verizon announced its Verizon 5G Home broadband internet service which went live on October 1, 2018. In April 2019, Verizon’s mobile 5G network became available. Verizon continues to build and expand its 5G Ultra Wideband network in both large and small cities, particularly in business districts and public spaces. The plan is to continue the rollout of 5G in more than 30 U.S. cities in 2019.

    Samsung Galaxy s10 is a pretty nice strong phone to use with 5g. 5G speeds will range from about 50 Mbit/s to over a gigabit. Mid-band 5G, most common, will usually deliver between 100 & 400 Mbit/s. Low-band will be slower. Check the 5g coverage maps to know which cities have coverage.
