What You Need to Know About 5G

While a rapid 5G rollout continues across the UK, there are still doubts around the service, its costs and its availability. In this blog we debunk the 5G myths and take a closer look at the data…

First of all, what is it? 

5G is the fifth-generation technology for broadband mobile networks. It has already been deployed in over 300 locations in the UK, and the rollout continues. It has been predicted that 5G will have more than 1.8 billion subscribers worldwide by 2025.

5G will be the catalyst for connecting humans and machines together on an unprecedented scale for new business and economic opportunities. 5G offers greater bandwidth capability, higher download speeds, lower latency and many more benefits than its predecessor – it’s the perfect step-up from 4G.

So, what’s the truth? 

Myth –  5G is just for cities

Myth debunked – 5G is not just for cities. It will be available nationwide. 5G is active in over 300 towns and cities, offering 30% population coverage.¹ Most of the UK is expected to have 5G by 2023.²

Myth – 5G is just the same as 4G

Myth debunked – Actually 5G is 100x faster! 5G offers predicted speeds of up to 10Gbps. That’s up to 100x faster than 4G.¹

Also 1000x more capacity – With 5G, you can use more connected devices concurrently than before and remove any network capacity restraints.¹

But what does it mean?

It means no more buffering or frozen screens on video calls – even if hundreds of people are using their devices simultaneously.

5G, 4G, Mobile, phones, business, network
So, what’s 5G’s value for businesses?

5G’s super-fast response speed means it’s great for remote working and VPN access, as well as industrial monitoring, drones or autonomous robot vehicles.

Its high capacity  means it’s great for reliable video conferencing and video calls, or video surveillance with high resolution security cameras.

The High Device volume means it’s brilliant for IoT applications in smart cities, asset tracking, eHealth and consumer devices.

If you’re looking for a signal, this is it. When it comes to the benefits of 5G, we’ve barely scratched the surface.
