Have you heard of 5G?
This is everything you need to know about the 5g network .
You know, the wireless network that everyone is talking about? except you’re like, “What is it exactly?” Well, I’m here to set the record straight with five facts about 5G!
Here are everything you need to know about the 5G
1. 5G might one day give us driverless cars or drones that control their own drones or something. We don’t know.
2. waves can go a little farther but there’s not a lot of mid band available for 5G.
Now let me explain
Fact one (1) :
5G means 5th generation wireless technology. so just as 3G brought email to our phones and 4G allowed for things like rideshare apps and streaming video, 5G might one day give us driverless cars or drones that control their own drones or something. We don’t know.
But there are some things we do know which leads me to
Fact number two (2):
Not all 5G is created equal. Now, imagine I’m inside a guitar. Wireless networks are built using different frequencies of radio waves that do different things think of it kind of like sound.
First, there’s the high band or millimeter wave. these cycle at a ridiculously high rate. They can transmit a lot of information. But they don’t go very far because they get absorbed easily. Next is the mid band. Now, these waves can go a little farther but there’s not a lot of mid band available for 5G.
Finally, there’s low band like the six hundred megahertz frequency the T-Mobile built its nationwide 5G on. So let’s learn a little bit more about that signal. Which brings me to
Fact number three (3):
600 megahertz 5G can travel through walls and buildings. Sort of like the way light travels through glass.
You know how you can always hear that fat bass on your neighbor’s stereo but not the high notes? It’s because that lower frequency doesn’t get absorbed or scattered by obstacles the way high frequencies do. Hey, turn that down! Now why does this matter? Because if your wireless signal doesn’t travel through walls, it’s not nearly as useful. Now the other interesting thing about 600 megahertz 5G is
Fact number four (4):
600 megahertz 5G goes farther. which is really important because well, America is really freaking big! and you need a 5G signal that can travel further and cover more Americans and more places instead of say just a few of us living in big cities. oh and guess what? fact number five: T-Mobile is the first and only carrier with nationwide 5G T-Mobile’s nationwide 5G already covers 200 million people and counting and it’s in over 5,000 cities and towns right now. That’s a lot of access to 5G for a lot of Americans. share this article and watch video below to know more if you think more people should have access to 5G
