When your mobile devices are connected to a 5G connection, your mobile connection will work as fast as your home Wi-Fi. This is great news as more and more of us depend on our mobile devices to stay connected to the office and our homes. I like my 4G connection, but there are times when I wish I could download a video quicker or be able to instantly look at our Ring (www.ring.com) doorbell when an alert pops up on my smart phone. So why should you be excited about 5G? Well, let me share with you some of the ways it will make your life easier.
What is 5G technology? As I stated before, 5G is the fifth generation in wireless technology. 4G technology works pretty fast for the most part, but think about all of the times you stream video from your smart devices, play games, or even check email and there is a slow down or a lag. Well 5G promises to change all of that by making the data we send and receive from our smart devices being transmitted faster than a blink of an eye. Also, as more and more of us connect our gadgets and smart home devices to the internet, we will need an infrastructure that can accommodate all that traffic. That's what 5G is for. How will that impact your life? Here's how 1. Home. Let me see a show of hands from those of you who have Wifi-connected gadget at home! If you're like me, you have an assortment of smart home devices like thermostats, doorbells, and security cams, and of course don't forget about your desktops, tablets and phones. 5G technology will make all of it rum more efficiently .. up to 10 times faster making it possible for us to see the clearest video from our smart security systems. Upload family video to relatives in other cities or across the globe will be seamless. If you office at of your home, 5G will make it much easier to run your business from your smartphone or tablet. For folks in rural areas who connect to a 5G network will get the same Internet speeds as folks who live in the city. 2. Office. So many offices allow their employees work mobile completely or to a degree. Think of all of those times you needed to wait for large files to download to your smart devices and computers.

Those video calls with the kids are going to be something else.Even if you work in an office, 5G technology will allow your office to be efficient making it possible to stay in contact with customers and colleagues getting more done in the day 3. Education. 5G will do incredible things in the classroom and for students who need access to high speed Internet.
