Understanding the differences between 4G and 5G can be confusing, but this post breaks it down for you. Learn about the key differences in speed, coverage, latency, capacity, and potential applications of these two generations of mobile network technology.
5G is the fifth generation of cellular technology: it is designed to increase speed, reduce latency and improve the flexibility of wireless services. For example 5G has a theoretical peak speed of 20 Gbps, while the peak speed of 4G is only 1 Gbps. 5G also promises lower latency, which can improve the performance of business applications, as well as other digital experiences (such as online gaming, video conferencing and driverless driving systems).
If you like to get started on what 5G is you can take a look at the video from Marques Brownlee (it’s one of the most watch videos on 5G in YouTube).
