One of the major benefits of the introduction of 5G services in India is its ability to perform faster on cellular, and other devices unlike its predecessors 2G, 3G, 4G, and 4G LTE were performing the basic functions that would have taken hours. The 5G services will boom the gaming industry by enhancing performance as the users can utilize 10 Gbps of the internet with the technology.
5G technology will be provided with low latency which, will support other new technologies like IoT, artificial intelligence, and virtual reality. The low latency will make browsing easier thus, enhancing the customer’s experience.
It will further enhance the connectivity among devices and result in providing a seamless experience by providing increased bandwidth. The technology would provide the users a seamless transition of services between the devices and thus, improve performance.
Further, less number of 5G towers would also provide users with improved bandwidth.
But, the main question lies in how effective will be the process of coverage of 5G broadband services, and how long will it take for the services to operate in the country.
