For some, 5G is the bogeyman coming to make our lives forever worse. For others, it’s simply the next step in improving how we utilise the internet all around us. 5G networks are rolling out all across the UK and beyond, and it’s likely to start seeing 5G top quality solutions put all across the country. With new 5G phones launching and 5G home devices soon to be on the market, why are we so excited about it?
Let’s take a look at just some of the ways in which 5G could offer us even more functionality than ever before.
Faster, more reliable speeds
Nothing is more annoying than trying to connect to a website for quick reference of a product price when out shopping, only to find out that it will not connect. With 5G, we should be able to get more or less consistent internet connectivity wherever we go. It will ensure that you can get rapid internet speeds even when you are and about outside of your normal comfort zone.
It’s gong to ensure we’re faster than ever at finding answers to the questions we carry around with us.
More choice than ever
While 3G is going to be switched off, 2G is still going to be active when it comes to using 5G internet. So, even if your 5G connection is somehow not available, you can use 2G still. This means that we should have less downtime and more opportunity to stay connected for as long as we need as we go about our daily duties.
Improved entertainment on the go
It’s even improving how much we can utilise online apps and services to our benefit. For example, let’s say that you enjoy some gambing when you are travelling, such as playing your favourite online casino on a site like. That’s going to be much easier if you are using 5G; you can now get much more reliable internet access wherever you are.
That means you can enjoy your gaming experience on the go without service drop-offs and delays.
Given the importance of investment going into making 5G as secure as it can be, expect there to be plenty of talk about security. The hope is that those on 5G networks should be on a more secure, more reliable network that should (in theory) make using the internet a bit safer for the majority.
This will ensure that you can get some great peace of mind when using the internet as you go about your day-to-day duties.
Broadband speed in the street
You might even find that using 5G connections in the street will trump the speed that you can get at home. It’s expected that 5G could produce around 80-100mbps per speeds. This means rapid downloads, delivery of internet pages, and playing games without any of the usual slow speeds you are used to.
This is going to be capable of producing the kind of browsing, streaming, and gaming quality that we would expect from a home PC, not a phone!
There’s much to admire about 5G, then. While there might be some trepidation about it, make no mistake; it’s going to make our lives so much simpler when using the internet outside of our homes.
