5G - coming to a city near you

Thursday, 5 November 2020

Thursday, 5 November 2020

With the reign of the 'Coppersaurus' rapidly coming to an end in preparation for the big ISDN switch-off in 2025, there may still be some apprehension surrounding it's shiny new successor as it dominates the UK - one city at a time.

So - What exactly is 5G?

This next generation of mobile network connectivity is brought to us by CityFibre, supplied by mobile networks, and is an adaptation of technologies like 3G and 4G. Not only does 5G provide a faster and stronger connection, it also provides reduced latency, in turn making the network more responsive. 5G is also beneficial as the capacity is unlike its predecessors and it allows many more devices to be connected at the one time.

Not just for mobiles...

This new and improved network can be used in a wide variety of industries to change the way we do things - not just helping your phone to run more efficiently.

Alternative uses could be;

  • In Farming to adapt machinery and make them autonomous when caring for crops - ensuring more efficient use of resources
  • In Healthcare and Healthcare Education by being used to create practice technology for medical students, enabling them to get a more 'real feel' when strengthening their skills.
  • In transport services to adapt crossings, parking schemes, etc.

When can you get 5G connection?

EE was the first network to launch 5G in the UK back in May 2019, with others like Vodafone, O2, BT and Sky Mobile following closely behind. Three, the last of the major networks, came on board in February of this year.

At present in the UK the 5G network is offered in 112 towns and cities, most recently Aberdeen and Blackpool to name a few, with plans already underway to expand this further.
