5G stands for fifth generation and is the most advanced mobile network technology available worldwide. 5G offers speeds that are significantly faster than previous technologies, more reliable connections and comes with better security features, making it a great choice for businesses looking for a cost-effective way to connect with your employees and customers.
With more businesses utilising cloud transfers and storage, more smartphone users, and more Internet of Things (IoT) devices online, 5G ultra-low latency and lightning fast speeds enable us to transmit and process information faster, completely changing the way we work, and therefore transforming the way your business can operate.
What does 5G look like and how does it work?
5G is similar to 4G in that it uses radio waves to transmit data across distances over the air. However, 5G can deliver connection speeds of up to 1Gb/s – up to 20x faster compared with average speeds of 20Mb/s on 4G. This means that you are able to download files much quicker from servers on other networks or even from your own computer at home!
5G Broadband connects to a mobile network using a SIM card in a router, and sends data over the same network that is used by mobile phones.
The router will still need to be connected to a power socket but will no longer need to connect to a phone line.
