What makes 5G better?
Benefits of 5G
The fifth generation (5G) mobile network enables faster speeds, lower latency (lag) and expands the potential of connected devices. 5G offers a leap forward in speed, reliability and connectivity.
The benefits of 5G are wide-ranging including expanding working on the move options, streaming in HD even on the move, powering better esports and gaming, offering greater Internet of Things (devices talking to devices) capabilities, for example smart watches connecting to smart phones and controlling smart home devices like heating, lighting and security and use in manufacturing, farming and more.
5G can also help foster greater digital inclusion by enabling community benefits such as improved health, education, and social outcomes. And in time, you’ll see the effects of the 5G network make even more exciting things come to life.
