5G is the 5th generation mobile network, 5G wireless technology is designed to deliver higher multi-Gbps peak data speeds, have more reliability and deliver higher performance and improved efficiency.
Widespread UK nationwide 5G has been here since May 2019. If you have 5G currently and it doesn’t seem to be making a difference to your mobile phone speed, your mobile network either has very little coverage in your area, or the signal is not penetrating indoors and you need a 5G signal booster.
5G travels over a higher frequency and can carry a heavier data load, but loses power over distance and becomes weaker as it travels through membranes such as walls, insulation and metal structures.
The benefits of 5G include it being unified and designed with extra carrier capacity to carry more data across the network without overloading. This allows greater speed and more users on the network without overloading it, and with negligible latency. These advancements will enable and inspire next-generation 5G user experiences. New business models will emerge and new industry will follow as a result, delivering new services for consumers.
