“The global pandemic of 2020 will reshape our world. We don’t yet know when the crisis will end. But we can be sure that by the time it does our world will look very different…”
The year 2020 impacted our daily lives gigantically, and as a result, digital applications and services are now on the rise. According to GSM Association, 5G networks are predicted to have more than 1.7 billion subscribers worldwide by 2025.
When 4G first arrived on our devices in 2012, it was revolutionary. It’s shaped how people across the UK communicate, watch, learn and share. Well, 5G builds on that.
Advancements in telecoms and technology provide for our hyper-connected lifestyles and the needs of individuals, industries and enterprises – worldwide and beyond.
Whilst 4G networks were good, it was too slow for some… We’ve come a long way from the first generation of wireless cellular technology – yet 5G takes the game to a whole new level. Some even say the 5G evolution is a key player in the next industrial revolution where the boundaries between digital and physical realms are blurring.
The obvious enhancements are a significant increase in current mobile broadband capabilities. 5G will significantly change the way we consume digital media and files, dramatically reducing lag times over 4G.
