What is 5G? || All questions answered about 5G networks || Part 2

After getting a humongous response over the previous part of we've received a lot more questions now. "Check it out here: What is 5G??" You guys are awesome... we love you all. In this article, we'll be answering most of your questions that will ultimately lead you to your desired answer. So without wasting time anymore let's get into it.

What else makes 5G so interesting?

The most enticing case for 5G is tough to define: It’s all the apps and gadgets that haven’t been invented yet because 5G’s unique properties are also what makes them possible. With 2G came text messaging, 3G ushered within the iPhone and 4G has enabled services like Uber and Facetime. As for the business, 5G’s safety features, speeds and capacity for more devices is also beneficial in settings like smart factories.

Faster speeds are also more compelling for advertisements and commercials, but the flexibility to cut back network congestion and accommodate a far greater number of users is the main reason the industry is hyped about... That’s very true for dense metropolitan areas like New York, where I stood on a rooftop (photo above) on a recent sweltering day with AT&T’s Carl Busseno to determine 5G in action. Busseno is an engineer who has served because the wireless carrier’s radio access network director for the New York and New Jersey markets since 2009. “The fundamental reason for every G that’s come out” — 2G all the thanks to 5G — “is more capacity,” he said. “In New York City, you'll be able to never have enough capacity, so you wish to possess the maximum amount as possible.” a number of the new york mobile-phone bustle took a breather during the Covid-19 lockdowns, but it’s coming as office workers and tourists return: Wireless-network traffic doubles during weekdays in Manhattan, he said.

What does 5G look like in the real world?

Well here's how it looks in the human world.

Is 5G really that fast? Do buildings and trees cause a problem? 

The answer to both is: It depends. Some 5G travels on frequencies below 6 gigahertz, mentioned as low- and mid-band spectrum. These connections are pretty just like 4G and are the version of 5G the majority are likely to interact with. Carriers consider mid-band the goldilocks choice because it provides a decent balance of coverage and speeds, but it might not wow consumers as such. The super-duper-fast millimetre-wave spectrum — frequencies approaching 30 gigahertz and better — that almost all people probably envision once they hear “5G” are less common. These signals can’t travel long distances or go through obstructions well, so they’ll be mostly limited to densely populated cities and packed locales like concert spaces and sports arenas.

AT&T performed several speed tests that day: With the sub-6-gigahertz spectrum, download speeds ranged from about 110 to 130 megabits per second. certainly, once positioned ahead of the millimetre-wave antennas, download speeds surged to 1 gigabit per second  (lightning-bolt emoji).

When will I own 5G? 

It depends solely on your carrier plans to deploy 5G in your area and when you decide to get a brand new smartphone. The GSMA, the industry’s trade body, forecasts that most of all North American mobile connections are going to be 5G by 2025. But in fact, the pandemic lockdowns taught us that a sturdy home broadband internet connection is more vital, for now. What else makes 5G exciting?
