So many persons are wondering if it is possible for them to get 5G networks on their already phone.
However existing smartphones, tablet or other devices that were released when 4G networks were the standard may not be able to connect to 5G.
Anyone who wants to connect 5G should wait a little as the deadline for the network roll-out is 2020. What this means therefore, is that we should soon see devices coming with 5G connection as default.
Don’t worry though – although 5G should represent a major step up from current 4G and 3G networks, the new technology won’t immediately replace its predecessor – at least, not to begin with.
Moreover, 5G networks will link with existing networks to ensure users never lose connection, with the older networks acting as back-up in areas not covered by the new 5G coverage.
So-called “4.5G” networks (also known as LTE-A) are set to fill the gap for the time being, offering connections that are faster than current 4G networks, although only certain countries such as South Korea can benefit from them right now.
