About 5G Networks

5G technology is the fifth generation standard for cellular networks. It is a planned successor to the 4G network, and many phone companies have already begun deploying 5G infrastructure worldwide in 2019. The main advantage of the new 5G networks is that they will have greater bandwidth, allowing faster download speeds up to 10Gbit/s. This increased bandwidth will also greatly expand the possible applications. 5G infrastructure networks are expected to compete with existing ISPs and make possible new applications in the Internet of Things (IoT) and Machine-to-Machine (M2M) areas. 5G Market Share is highly concentrated in China and South Korea among Huawei and Samsung.
