What makes 5G better?
The Benefits of 5G
The fifth generation (5G) of mobile networks enables faster speeds, lower latency (lag), and expands the potential of connected phones and devices. 5G offers a massive leap forward in speed, reliability, and connectivity.
The benefits of 5G are wide-ranging including expanding options for working on-the-move, streaming in HD even while on-the-move, powering better esports and gaming, offering greater Internet of Things 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 help foster greater digital inclusion by enabling community benefits like improved health, education, and better social outcomes. In time, you’ll also see the effects of the 5G network make even more exciting things come to life.
