5G: The Next Great Thing?
In five years, an estimated 1,5 billion mobile phone users will switch to #5G technology, which covers roughly 40% of the current global network activity. 5G offers customers a superior connection speed, but the drawbacks include current limited long-range coverage and even more reduced battery life for our mobile devices.
The smooth operation of 5G requires many nodes that have already been installed in the USA, Kuwait, South Korea, Switzerland, and the UK. Future launches include Canada, Brazil, and Kazakhstan.
