When discussing the advantages of home 4G LTE and 5G internet we must first understand the history of cellular internet technology. In this article we start from the point that the fourth generation of wireless technology known as 4G technology was introduced to the world in 2009. In comparison to 3G, it revolutionized how home consumers & businesses alike, could conduct communicate and surf the web. As it facilitated much faster downloading and uploading speeds, smoother streaming of videos and movies, etc. The acronym “LTE” means Long Term Evolution and is now the standard with all 4G LTE devices and was considered an upgrade from the original 4G tech.
The fifth generation, 5G technology was rolled out in 2019 on a phased basis, focusing on cities with high population density and 4G infrastructure. The major advantages of this application are (i) the high speed of downloading and uploading transmissions (ii) capability for increased connectivity to a greater number of devices as it carries more channels (iii) having a lower latency allows improved response times to applications, just to name a few. Despite 5G having improved technology, there has been slow acceptance given the controversy associated with Chinese suppliers/vendors, security and health concerns.
