5G networks continue their roll-outs across the world and the new mobile internet service is eagerly awaited for a reason.
Both peak and regular use download speeds as well as other specs of the new service dwarf existing 4G/LTE specs. The service also offers improved latency (the lag from giving an order to a device and the carrying out of that order), bandwidth and a much higher number of simultaneous carriers. This improvement is especially crucial for the development of services like autonomous driving and the like.
South Korea was the first country to launch a full-service 5G network service in early 2019 and the U.S. followed suit quickly. In both countries, services were rolled out to a limited urban customer base in the beginning and still certainly come with a high price tag.
