Here’s what’s currently making us excited this month; 5G Networks!
While there aren’t any active 5G networks in Nigeria, there are so many prospects to it this 2020. Since its successful trial, we can’t wait to witness this experience.
Currently, only South Africa and Lesotho have access to the 5g network. Even at that, it hasn’t circulated to all parts of the country.
However, The Global System for Mobile Communications Association (GSMA) has predicted that seven African countries, including Kenya, Nigeria, and South Africa, will have commercial 5G services by 2025. While its official launching is expected this year. It is anticipated to account for only 3% of total mobile connections on the continent and 14% globally.
So what’s it like to use a 5G Network?
Fastest Internet Like The Speed Of Light
It takes exactly 5 minutes and 3.84 seconds to download a 2.3GB video on 4G networks. With 5G, it takes 15.78 seconds!
Yes, and it is expected to support a wide range of industries.
It will potentially produce up to twelve trillion dollars worth of goods and services by 2035

FACTS ABOUT 5G
First, it’s fast. Like, very fast. Like, 20 gigabits per second over wireless fast. Like 100 – 250 times faster than 4G. By comparison, 4G provides speeds, on average, of about 10 – 20 megabits a second. So that’s going from streaming one Netflix movie in HD to streaming 400 movies in 8k at the same time.
But that’s not really the most impressive part… what sets 5G aside is its crazy low latency rate, which is the amount of delay between the sending and receiving of information. Now, 4G tends to average about 100-200 milliseconds. To be fair, 100 milliseconds is FAST; human reaction time is about 200-300 milliseconds. But 5G… will get it down to 1 millisecond. Or less. That’s almost real-time. And being able to send and receive information in what is essentially real-time, means that we can use 5G… to replace real-time interactions.
If you look up in the corner of your phone, you’re probably used to seeing a little indicator that says 4G LTE or, 3G, or… God forbid, 2G – and you’ve come to recognize that it probably has something to do with your phone’s connection to your mobile network. The higher the G, the faster the connection. It’s pretty easy to follow, the G stands for generation, and each subsequent generation refers to a specific minimum speed, connectivity, and reliability necessary to classify the network as that particular generation. 1G let us talk to each other, 2G let us send messages, 3G gave us broad data and internet, and 4G/LTE made it a whole lot faster.
Imagine playing a cop shooter like Fortnite Battle Royale or PUB-G on a VR headset… in real-time, with zero lag… all through your phone, while traveling in a fleet of self-driving cars going 200 miles an hour. Sit tight, because the future of gaming, and everything else, is about to change forever.
In fact, forget cars for a second, and think of all robotic devices. They could perform surgeries, from the other side of the world, with robot surgeons controlled in real-time by expert surgeons, being assisted by other expert surgeons simultaneously; saving lives in situations where time and distance are the difference between life and death. Robots that can communicate their task and position to each other can staff factories, allowing them to not only do more, but do it more efficiently, and wirelessly over a 5G network. Imagine a fleet of drones flying over a field of crops, using sensors on the ground, to sort, pick, feed, and water individual plants – all on their own.
That might be one of the biggest breakthroughs in 5G: a network of self-driving cars – all sending data between each other and communicating with traffic lights, road sensors, aerial drones, and so on. Think about it, human reaction speed is 200 milliseconds, and we still have accidents every day. Imagine if your car could react, and communicate its reaction to hundreds of cars around it, all within a millisecond. Not only could we end car accidents, hell, but we could also end traffic altogether. Hundreds of self-driving cars, going lightning fast to your destination, with no risk that they’ll hit each other, because they all know exactly where they are in real-time, reacting to the actual world around them. Autonomous or remotely controlled trains, delivery trucks, even airplanes could be on the horizon in the near future.
