Pros of 5G Technology

  1. Enhanced Speed: Compared to 4G, 5G works faster on all 5G compatible devices. Using 5G, users can download videos, movies, and music in a fraction of the time it takes on 4G devices.
  2. Low Latency: Compared to 4G, 5G has lower latency. It supports many applications and allows users to use any applications and web pages without hassles.
  3. Higher Bandwidth: 5G has a very high bandwidth, allowing the transferring of any amount of data at much higher speeds. A 5G user on a compatible network is assured of having greater bandwidth and faster connection speeds.

Cons of 5G Technology

  1. Limited Global Coverage: 5G network is enabled and deployed in select global locations. Most second tier cities and remote areas will face delays in the rollout of 5g networks and devices.
  2. Costs:Compared to other networks, it’s more expensive to set up the tower stations associated with 5G technology..
  3. Upload Speeds: Compared to 4G, 5G has a high download speed, but the upload speed maxes out at 100Mbps. Thus users who have 5G technology in their device frequently experience devices that “heat” up or become warm to the touch.
  4. Decreased Broadcast Distance: 5G network waves do not travel as far as 4G since millimeter waves can easily be blocked by buildings, trees, etc., which leads to various problems.
