Here’s our guide to everything you need to know about 5G and how you can benefit from it.
5G is the next generation of mobile broadband that will eventually replace 4G on a universal scale. Allowing broadband users to enjoy faster download and upload speeds, 5G operates on three different spectrum bands, including low-band, mid-band and high-band spectrums.
Promising to be up to 100 times faster than 4G and 2,000 times faster than 3G, this new generation of mobile internet also offers much higher and faster frequencies.
EE, Three, Vodafone and O2 have all launched 5G for some UK customers. It is expected to be rolled out gradually throughout the country over the next few years, with the aim that the vast majority of broadband users will be using 5G by 2022.

Another major advantage of 5G is its unprecedented speed and connectivity, meaning it can be used by automated, or self-driving vehicles, including to connect and communicate between vehicles, infrastructures, networks and pedestrians.
With the vast majority of us permanently attached to our smartphones, demand for faster internet connection and browsing is at an all-time high. And a benefit of 5G devices is that you will be able to enjoy better signal in remote destinations, improved service quality and of course, improved download and upload speeds.
Finally, 5G also offers users the opportunity to enjoy faster streaming, extraordinary immersive experiences, multisensory digital content and much more.
Supporting technologies such as virtual reality, augmented reality and 3D, 5G is great news for businesses looking to enhance their digital strategies with the latest tech innovations.
