Still struggling to access quality 4G connection in Nigeria? Well, it looks like the world is not waiting for us to catch up. Here are 3 important things you should know about 5G:
1. 5G might be faster than lightning. TechCrunch claims that it will deliver speeds of up to 10 Gigabits per second (Gbps), which is 40 times faster than the current maximum speeds achievable on 4G.
- The Internet of Things will be easily achievable with 5G; machine-to-machine communication will be richer and hassle free and the need for human interference will be minimal. There are self-driving cars now, maybe there will be self-operating houses when 5G shows up.
- 5G is most likely to come out by 2020. According to TechRadar, UK consumers aren’t expected to see it rollout until around 2020 at the very earliest.
5G connectivity will be a breath of fresh air in this part of the world.
Can you even begin to imagine the possibilities of proper ‘lightning-speed’ Internet?
