As the world is gradually moving to the next generation of wireless mobile networks, we need to ask ourselves about the various benefits it has over 4G. Just as how 4G came to support 3G, 5G is also coming to support 4G. Whenever 5G is mentioned, it is referring to a technology developed to compensate for the daily increase in data demand.
Since 5G is designed to give a super-fast internet connection, I think the major difference between both technologies is that 5G will be about 15 times faster than 4G. This is quite incredible, and it is going to change a lot of things if it is achieved.
5G is going to be faster than 4G because it will travel on super high radio frequencies. This will definitely give us unhindered access to the internet with fast speed. Also, it will also make internet connection and speed more reliable.
5G is approximately 20 times quicker than 4G. Current 4G networks top speed about Gbps per second, which means that it takes about a solid hour to download an HD movie. 5G networks will provide download speeds up to 10 Gbps per second, which means that the same file will download in only a matter of minutes.
5G also uses different kinds of antennas, operates on different radio spectrum frequencies, connects numerous devices to the internet, diminishes delays, and delivers with speed and efficiency.
Also, 5G's utilizes unique radio frequencies and achieves what 4G networks cannot. The radio spectrum is separated into bands, each with unique features as you go up into higher frequencies. 4G networks use frequencies below 6 GHz — however, 5G uses sky-high frequencies in the 30 GHz to 300 range.
It has been said that 5G is known to be faster, smarter, and more effective as compared to 4G. This is already expected since this is the newer version. It is supposed to offer more convenience to people who are using it. 5G promises that it will offer internet speed that is faster than the usual internet speed that people are used to right now.
When it comes to speed, 5G is supposed to be 100 times faster than 4G. This is enough to get a lot of people excited about 5G, but not all of the gadgets that are available right now will be able to access this type of network. This is not yet available in different places all over the world, too.
