So what’s your thoughts on this forthcoming new outdoor, public, microwaved, brain melting technology. Is it a great new way for idiots to stream full 4k videos on a device that you cannot really make out the resolution on? Is it the new way forward for the smart-home for dumb-ass millennial’s? Nobody really understands the full impact of the new 5G technology unfolding around the globe the same way that nobody understood the 4G, 3G, 2G and G when it was developed.

The only thing I can say is that, we probably don’t need it. The “Mobile Phone” was developed all those years ago for telecommunications on the move. The companies behind the development of mobile communications did not realise that people would actually use their devices for communication and eventually “web Browsing” indoors. The development from the firs GSM mobile phones were not very powerful and it was difficult for signals to penetrate walls and other obstacles, so a more and more powerful high frequency signal was developed.

5G aims to deliver data rates that are 10 to 100 times faster than current 4G networks. Users should expect to see download speeds on the order of gigabits per second (Gb/s), much greater than the tens of megabits per second (Mb/s) “That’s significant because it will enable new applications that are just not possible today,” said Harish Krishnaswamy, an associate professor of electrical engineering at Columbia University in New York. “Just for an example, at gigabits per second data rates, you could potentially download a movie to your phone or tablet in a matter of seconds. Those type of data rates could enable virtual reality applications or autonomous driving cars.”

5G is to achieve latencies below the 1-millisecond mark. Mobile devices will be able to send and receive information in less than one-thousandth of a second, appearing instantaneous to the user. To accomplish these speeds, the rollout of 5G requires new technology and infrastructure.
