How Different Is It Than 4G?

No doubt that 5G is going to transform the telecom industry as well as infrastructure updates that will alter the autonomous vehicles and healthcare sector. Though 5G is the fastest speed internet wave, it cannot be much higher than good old 4G in the same spectrum. And there is no doubt that the downloading and browsing speed will definitely improve. Claimed as a hundred times faster than 4G and for new services for smart cities, smart homes, wearables, health care services and more, 5G is poised to redefine digital lifestyles.

Ask Yourself

As the coin has two sides to it, everything comes with advantages as well as disadvantages. With reference to 5G, few of the disadvantages can increase health issues, network unavailability, surveillance concerns, or maybe it’s altogether a misunderstood risk with human lives at stake.

Are you ready to compromise on your health over a bit speedy internet service? Is network availability in your country running smoothly for 4G even, let alone 5G? Has the internet become so important in your life that you aren’t asking yourself if 5G is dangerous? Do you actually need 5G? are you ready to pay the price (in terms of health) to get speedy internet?

A novelty feature in 2019, 5G was relegated to the most expensive top-tier models, a majority of the midrange, and possibly even a few budget phones and it will ship with 5G during 2020.

Features you might relate to when we talk about the future use of 5G in your lives:

Seeing a rise in autonomous vehicles – With the deployment rate of 5G in the USA, you will see a rise in autonomous vehicles around you. Because of this technology, vehicles will be able to communicate with each other and provide information to other vehicles about road conditions.

Public safety and infrastructure – I think without a doubt, safety must always be the primary concern we should think about. In the near future, 5G will allow cities to operate more efficiently. Utility companies will be tracking usage remotely and sensors can notify public-work-departments when drains flood or street lights go out. The whole idea will be roaming around public safety and infrastructure development.

Health care – The low latency of 5G is going to transform the healthcare industry. For example, how you get treatments or the consultation step with healthcare professionals. Some of the other improvements you could see in the near future are remote recovery, physical therapy via AR, precision surgery, and probably a remote surgery in the coming years.

Remote device control – Again with the help of the low latency of 5G, remote control of heavy machinery will become reality. With the goal of reducing risks of working on hazardous equipment, this technology will allow the technicians to control the equipment remotely from almost anywhere in the world.
