Due to recent advances in 5G wireless connectivity, people and devices across are gradually being able to communicate at lightning-fast speeds. 5G is up to 100 times faster than 4G, with a bandwidth that can support countless new devices in the coming years. 5G networks supported by fiber optic cables have a lot to offer wireless users, with unmatched speed and stability and minimal latency, but businesses can benefit greatly from the use of 5G networks as well. Read on to learn how businesses can use 5G to increase their productivity and reach, and when you can expect 5G to reach across the country.
Improved Connections with Employees
As more and more companies become more flexible with work from home policies, more employees will be based further away from each other. 5G networks enable remote employees and long-distance business partners to communicate seamlessly with each other throughout the day. 5G connections can also help support smoother video conferencing, which is useful for sharing ideas and information more efficiently.
Improved Connections with Clientele
The steady increase of Internet users throughout the world is increasing the demand for online accessibility. 5G bandwidth can increase the efficiency of your network-related tasks and make work easier to manage. File-sharing can happen much faster, cloud storage is more dependable, and online transactions happen swiftly when 5G supports your website and web functions.
Improved Connections to the Internet of Things
The Internet of Things (IoT) connects wireless devices on various levels. The IoT allows for interactions with people and tools at a distance. These wireless systems demand a strong connection to function, which is where 5G comes in. Older, copper-based cables support bandwidths that cannot support the workload of the IoT. 5G networks supported by lightning-quick fiber optic cables ensure a bandwidth that promises more stability from the Internet of Things.
How Quickly is 5G Advancing?
While 5G offers many benefits, it is not yet available in every city across America. Carriers like AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon are spreading 5G throughout the country. AT&T, in particular, has their low-band 5G available in 100 cities across the country. Every major U.S. carrier is working tirelessly to implement 5G networks, particularly as the demand for them grows. However, full 5G network implementation will still take several years in the U.S. When that time comes, 5G networks will be here to help your business thrive in the digital age.
