5G benefits and availability on Galaxy phones
With 5G starting to roll out across the U.S., it won't be long before the whole country is connected to a better network. You'll be able to enjoy faster downloads, streaming, and much more. But 5G is more than a mere boost in speed; it's literally the foundation of autonomous cars, augmented reality, and other new and exciting wireless technology.
Note: The Galaxy Note10+ 5G is currently only available through the Verizon 5G network.
Before you can start enjoying 5G, please be aware that its availability is still limited. Currently, 5G is available through Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint, and AT&T in certain test cities.
However, more and more 5G infrastructure is being built, and each carrier will have 5G available in more cities by the end of 2019.
5G vs 5GE
In general terms, 5G refers to the 5th generation of cellular technology. However, 5G should not be confused with AT&T's 5GE, or 5G Evolution.
Simply put, AT&T's 5GE is a rebranded name for their current network, which runs on comparable 4G speeds. However, AT&T, along with Verizon Wireless are currently working on launching an actual 5G network.
Note: Verizon's 5G plan is known as 5G Ultra Wideband.
5G may be blazing fast, but it isn't just about delivering faster speeds. It's about helping the world become more connected through IoT (Internet of Things).
5G is revolutionary because it will help more devices connect and operate simultaneously. We're talking about more than 100 times the number of connected devices in a single area.
5G will boast a network speed of 10Gbps, compared to 10Mbps with 4G. That is a huge jump in speed.
