Will the dreamy speeds attainable in the 5th generation of telecommunications internet speeds start in your area? Well in London, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, G Osborne has promised their government will stick to the plan of rolling out the superfast across the entire United Kingdom. With the vast 750 MHz of spectrum still being held back from telecommunications operators, the promise is becoming more and more real and could soon see most of it completely rolled out by the set date in 2020.
The introduction of faster generations of internet have always triggered the development of newer technologies, which could bring an era of new solutions to the current business and even personal problems that we still haven’t considered fixable through technology.
Budget 2016; Governments Keen on Rolling Out 5G
It could be the last domino in the falls necessary to begin an era of the internet of things. The possibilities are really endless.
In a statement most likely to have many people rubbing their palms together in anticipation, the British government also exposed their willingness to lift the restrictions for companies to erect base stations around the entire area of the country. Decongestion and extension of services to areas where previously there was low coverage will usher in a new experience level of communication.Elsewhere in the world, technology leaders speculate the size of leap that will come with the introduction of 5G will mould the world in new ways. With 5G being different from previous incremental advancements, the entire network is a strip down of previous slower versions and total improvement on areas where limitations were the determining factors of all innovations so far discovered.
To note will be the decrease in data cost owing to increased ease of access of the different spectrums below it and even 5G itself. As with previous technology improvements and roll outs to the world, an eventual plummet in the cost to own and use them can be predicted. Businesses will be able to run their cloud applications and extended networks at nearly half their current rates, making for better arguments to start businesses.
Other governments have expressed their interest in staying up to speed with standards in the past. Auctions of bandwidth should be expected to begin as soon as funds to roll out the better access to data across a level playing field.
A lot of people skip the the process involved up to the successful implementation of the fabled 5G network connectivity and jump back into the internet of things. With the challenges in security and general user awareness of what the implications of applications and mobile devices consistently connected to their lives are, it would be better for governments to take the remaining few years before rolling 5G out to educate their people.
After all is said and done, 5G has been on our lips too long and it’s introduction in 2020 or soon after will be the best moments in the era of technical developments. We will get a front seat to witnessing a new frontier of communications.
