Wireless communication technology inside our beloved smart phones and other mobile devices have evolved over several decades. You can even see this in the image below this article.
While many parts of the world still haven’t had the chance to experience 4G yet, multiple companies and agencies globally are all working to create the foundations for 5G.
But what is 5G?
5G is quite literally the fifth generation of mobile networks.
It will be hitting extremely high data speeds – perhaps 10-50 Gbit/s – which will allow large volumes of data to reach mobile devices – never again will you see people holding their phones above their head searching for a better connection.
Ofcom have even suggested that 5G could bring concepts like real time holographic videos to life! How cool would that be?
The timeframe for the launch of 5G services is uncertain, although it has been rumoured that commercial applications could emerge by 2020.
That’s only 3 years away!?!?
It’s safe to say we at Boosh HQ are buzzing for it to come around.
