5G is expected to bring us internet connections at super-fast speeds, so much that we’ll be able to flawlessly operate machines and talk to each other around the world in real-time, no lag at all. For example, doctors will be able to perform surgeries from a complete other location! Check out the video for all the exciting ways our world will be improved. And, in true YouTube fashion, read the video’s comments for the alternate theories on how 5G will affect our lives. Whatever you believe, it’s coming so you best be prepared.
With the quick rise in technology users worldwide, the current 4G networks have just about reached their limit. Holding a lot of promise is the next generation of wireless networks, 5G. We posted in early June about how 5G will change your life because this next generation will allow for much faster data speeds, and will be able to handle much more traffic.
In this video, IEE Spectrum gives us some insight on the five new technologies that are working together as the foundation of the upcoming 5G networks. There is still a lot of work needing to be done since 5G is currently still in the early planning stages. No one knows exactly what 5G is or what it will become of it as of yet, however, if everything goes according to plan you should be using 5G in the next 5 years!
Mobile technology is constantly being updated, and it does not take long for your current phone to go ‘out of style’. So what is the latest news in mobile technology? It’s 5G. This video from Techquickie defines 5G as mainly being built around the idea of connecting devices, and creating a more elaborate mobile network that will be able to handle all of these new connections. It will also allow for faster internet speeds, and ideally allow individuals to be able to use up to one GB/second.
Although it will not be available to the public for quite some time they are looking into doing trials for the 2018 and 2020 Olympic Games, and expect a widespread of 5G in about 2025. Looks like self-driving cars and automated homes are not too far away from being a reality. Let us know if you’re excited for this new 5G update in the comments below!
