What is 5G?

5G is the next-generation or fifth-generation mobile network. It’s faster, more secure, more reliable, more stable and more responsive than any mobile network we’ve seen before. It is designed to accommodate the fast growth of data usage by users. This means that 5G will enable new technologies like remote surgery and virtual reality on your phone — all while keeping you safe from hackers and other cyber threats. The term “5G” is used to describe a number of different technologies that improve on 4G LTE technology.

Key Benefits of 5G Network

There are not one, two or three benefits of 5G, but many. Let’s count some that are going to make a big difference:

Superfast Speed

The fifth generation of mobile technology is the fastest. With the 5G network, movie or video streaming will take just a few seconds. With Airtel 5G Plus network, user can experience data speed up to 30 times faster than 4G.

Higher Bandwidth

The 5G technology has increased bandwidth which makes it easy and seamless to transfer/consume data. It helps to improve user experience at next-level with improved connectivity & peek data transfer rate.

Low Latency Rate

The 5G network has lower latency as compared to its predecessors. It can easily support new-edge technologies like IoT, AI, virtual reality, etc.

How fast is 5G?

5G can offer speeds of up to 20-30 times faster than 4G. It simply means, you would be able to download a full HD movie in seconds or stream ultra-high definition video (4K) without any buffering.

5G Benefits for Consumers

5G is going to be a boon for users as it will enable new applications and services. From emails to social media to streaming video to cloud gaming, with 5G, everything will be better and faster than ever before. The 5G network is a win-win situation for everyone. It will improve the user experience, and consumers will become accustomed to being able to access information quickly and easily on their phones or other devices wherever they are in the world.

How is 5G different from 4G?

5G is the next-generation wireless data network that’s going to be faster, more reliable, and more secure than 4G. As a standard, 5G will deliver speeds up to 30 times faster than 4G, while also being able to connect more devices and users simultaneously.

Also, the new 5G network can handle larger amounts of data that arrive at a much higher rate. The network will be less congested, which means your phone won’t drop calls when you’re trying to use it in a crowded place. Additionally, the lower latency means that the new technologies will be able to process requests faster than ever before. That could mean things like self-driving cars becoming safer or even smarter robotic assistants that are better able to understand what we need help with because they’ve got our backs literally 24/7.

Let’s see a detailed comparison between both networks:

4G Network

5G Network

The maximum upload rate of the 4G network is 500Mbps. The maximum upload rate of the 5G network is 1.25 Gbps.
The maximum download rate of the 4G network is 1Gbps. The maximum download rate of the 5G network is 2.5 Gbps.
The 4G network offers CDMA. The 5G network offers OFDM, BDMA.
The 4G network has 50ms latency. The 5G network has 1ms latency.
The 4G network can’t differentiate between fixed and mobile devices. The 5G network has the ability to differentiate between fixed and mobile devices.
