Day by day, 5G cellular network technology makes its way to surface with more features and tech releases being reported on the news. For example, China’s commercial 5G network will be deployed on the high-speed rail link between Guangzhou and Shenzhen to Hong Kong, a line that stretches 142 km.
5G technology allows users to experience mobile data speeds up to 100 times faster than what the current 4G networks provide. It also offers a reduced latency, energy saving, cost reductions and a higher system capacity for the ever-growing number of internet plans subscribers. Artificial intelligence and cloud computing-backed applications will also be able to run on the 5G network coverage, which will improve system security and unlock new applications across different industries.
When 5G mobile services start to roll out for next year, cities will be able to support more technological advances and become even smarter, raising the full potential of what the internet of things can achieve.
On April 3 2019, South Korea became the first country to adopt 5G, and soon the United States followed. But only a handful of devices are currently out in the market that are compatible with this technology: In the US Motorola's 5G Moto Mod, in the UK are the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G, Oppo Reno 5G, OnePlus 7 Pro 5G, Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 5G, Huawei Mate 20 X 5G, and the LG V50 ThinQ 5G, and in Australia the Oppo Reno 5G, the LG V50 ThinkQ 5G and the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G are available.
The superfast 5G wireless technology promises a lot and we can almost feel it at out fingertips. Soon, we’ll all be enjoying crazy stuff like mobile virtual reality, telemedicine and so much more.
