What do we think about the 5G network?

As speculated, many telecom providers have started to test and launch a 5G network in the different parts of the world, where users can experience gigabit level internet speed on handheld devices. However, the main issue with the 5G network is the range, as the coverage of the 5G network is limited, and one has to buy a new 5G smartphones to test out the 5G network, which are very expensive.

 

With the 5G network, users can definitely enjoy high-speed internet. However, one should also note that the data consumption speed on a 5G network is much quicker compared to a 4G network, and telcos have to come up with data plans that offer unlimited or broadband-like internet.

As of now, there is no information on the launch of 5G network in India, as the spectrum allocation for the 5G network has to be done. However, companies like OnePlus have started to test the 5G network in the country.
