5G Networks are the next generation of mobile and internet connection offering faster speeds and more reliable connections than ever before. The development of 5G networks has begun and is expected to launch across the world by 2020. 5G will affect many kinds of devices such as security cameras, industrial robots, and drones and cars that send traffic data to each other. As a result, 5G will provide self-driving cars the ability to process all the information they need instantaneously. The health care industry believes that 5G will be able to provide the next generation of telemedicine and robotic surgeries.
For smartphone users in the United States, 5G should begin to become available in the second quarter of 2019. To receive the benefits of 5G, users will have to buy new phones and carriers will need to install new transmission equipment. How much faster 5G will be will depend on where you live, however, download speeds are estimated to be 20 times faster than the current 4G experience. These fast speeds will let people download entire movies in just seconds and will potentially bring large changes to video games, sports and shopping.
