5G Intro

5G Features

High Speed

5G's network speed is 10 times faster than that of 4G. Using 5G network, it only takes 1 to 3 seconds to finish downloading a 1GB file.

Example : Within the same duration, one can only download half of a TV drama episode with 4G network, compared to 10 episodes when using 5G network.
Low Latency

Every eye blink of a human being takes 100 milliseconds. Millisecond is the unit used in measuring 5G network delay, so one can be assured that information can be transmitted accurately and synchronously using 5G network.

Example: Hiccups may happen with 4G but not 5G connectivity. A drone operating with 5G network can fly smoothly without crashing.
High Volume Transmission

Comparing with 4G, 5G network supports 10-time more transmission capacity.

Example: 5G enables up to 1 million devices to be connected to the internet at the same time.
