What is 5G? Everything you need to know about 5G
As a mobile phone user, I love to use the fastest internet connectivity on my mobile phone to browse data and apps in a very short span. A few years ago like in 2012 or 2013 people were using 2G internet on their devices, after that 3G comes with better speed and later 4G technology really provide fast internet connectivity to users. Now here we are going to discuss 5G technology like What is 5G, Countries using 5G, 5G Wi Fi.
5G vs 4G: Speed comparison
On a 4G network, you get download speeds between 5 and 12 Mbps (Megabits per second) and upload speeds between 2 and 5 Mbps. And it is expecting the 5G will comes in existence up to 2020. The 5G speed will be 200 times fast than 4G technology.
Browsing speeds on 5G went up from 71 Mbps to 1.4 Gbps for 5G user. Download speeds for 90 per cent of users went from at least 10 Mbps to 186 Mbps on 5G, with the median speed clocking in at 442.
Hubert Da Costa, vice president, EMEA at 5G routers business Cradlepoint said: “5G Wi-Fi connections are set to be about three times faster than 4G, starting with 450Mbps in single-stream, 900 Mbps (dual- stream) and 1.3G bps (three-stream).

What is 5G? (Introduction)
Major Telecom companies start to investing about 5G technology, However, the British countries will not get the 5G till 20120. the research continues about the new wireless mobile technology. The trial 5G networks are already started to test in some countries.
5G stands for the fifth generation wireless mobile technology which could be 200 times faster than the 4th generation technology. 5G is an internet wireless technology which allows the users to download anything from a speed of100Mbps to 186 Mbps
According to the Next Generation Mobile Network’s 5G white paper, 5G connections must be based on ‘user experience, system performance, enhanced services, business models and management & operations’.
Main criteria of a 5G connection
- One to 10Gbps connections to endpoints in the field
- One millisecond end-to-end round-trip delay
- 1000x bandwidth per unit area
- 10 to 100x number of connected devices
- (Perception of) 99.999 per cent availability
- (Perception of) 100 percent coverage
- 90 percent reduction in network energy usage
- Up to ten-year battery life for low power, machine-type devices
Benefits of 5G technology (advantages)
Obviously, 5G will comes with faster speed than it’s the previous version as per history of wireless internet technology. 5G will be significantly faster than its predecessor 4G.
The 5G technology will improve the productivity of everything because nowadays everything gets done by the digital platform and the 5G will offer theoretical download speed of 10,000 Mbps.
The 4G mobile has the potential speed of 100s of Mbps. 5G offers to take that into multi-gigabits per second, giving rise to the ‘Gigabit Smartphone’.
On 5G technology, you will get faster download speeds which means you can download complex mobile internet apps.
Demerits of 5G technology (Disadvantages)
As the 5G technology will come with lots of implementation in speed and usages, so obviously it will be costlier. All the mobile companies will bring new smartphones with 5G technology which result in the 4G phone will be outdated.
The reliability of any internet connection depends on the no. of devices connected to one channel. With the addition of 5G to the wireless spectrum, this could put us at risk of overcrowding the frequency range.
Some of the places and mobiles do not support 4G after coming to the 4G network So the emergence of 5G could be a problem for 4G users.
The future of 5G
Although 5G still didn’t comes into existence for every user but still, it’s in the development stage. many companies already working on the 5G network and building 5G enabled devices.
The companies like Nokia, Qualcomm, Samsung forming 5G technology and investing money to continue to research into 5G and its usage. Ericsson began 5G testing in 2015.
Who is behind the invention of 5G?
Both Nokia and Ericcson started first to research about 5G technology in 2015. Ericsson created the first 5G platform earlier last year which claims to provide the first 5G radio system.
Nokia launched the first 5G platform earlier in 2017. The company aiming to provide end-to-end 5G support for mobile carriers.
Ericsson builds the world’s first 5G drone in 2018 with the help of BT, Verizon and Kings College London. There are many telecom companies start to investigate the 5G technology. Vodafone also has done the first 5G test in April 2018. Vodafone to offer full 5G services from early 2020.
