We’re hearing a lot about 5G lately — but that’s nothing compared to the bombardment of 5G marketing you’ll get in 2019.
5G, of course, is short for “fifth generation cellular network” You had your 2G, and then your 3G, and then your 4G. The cell carriers will turn on 5G networks in a handful of cities this year, and the first phones with 5G will be out early next year.
The first cool thing about 5G is its speed. In cities, it will be 20 times faster than 4G — probably faster than your internet at home or at work. In rural areas, it’ll be seven to nine times as fast.
5G will also have huge capacity — bandwidth — to the point where all cellphone plans will be unlimited. Really unlimited. You won’t get lower-quality video when you’re on cellular. You won’t have to wait till you have Wi-Fi to download a big app.
All that speed and capacity will affect the creation of apps, too. Your “pipe” to the internet will be so fast that it will feel like a wired connection — to much bigger, faster computers than you could ever fit into a phone. We’ll be able to use apps that require far more powerful processors.
