5G Mobile Internet
5G Mobile Internet, 5G Smartphones, what is the speed of 5G Internet ?
Your next smartphone is going to be a lot faster in 2019 thanks to the launch of the world’s first 5G-ready mobile devices.
Fast, broadband-equivalent 5G download speeds are coming to phones from 19 companies, including familiar names like LG, Sony, ZTE and HTC.
All of these phone makers have signed on to use the Qualcomm Snapdragon X50 5G NR modem, making way for multi-gigabit per second downloads and lower latency.
“5G will be the post-smartphone era,” said Robert J. Topol, Intel’s general manager for 5G business and technology. “Phones are the first place to launch because [they’re] such an anchor in our lives from a connectivity standpoint.”
After years of hype about gigabit speeds that will let you download full-length movies in mere seconds,
5G is finally becoming a reality in 2018. Or at least, we’ll get our first taste of it.

What is 5G?
The fifth generation of connectivity, pithily called 5G, will be ready for prime time later this year. Software is being tested, hardware is in the works, and carriers are readying their plans to deploy 5G in select markets by the end of 2018.
Principally, 5G is the name of a class of communications technologies—at a minimum, it means “whatever’s next.” The only 5G technology currently standardized by 3GPP, a cooperative responsible for the development of the 3G UMTS and 4G LTE standards, is 5G NR (New Radio). Preliminary finalized versions of 5G NR were released by the 3GPP in December 2018.
5G MOBILE INTERNET SPEED :-
5G NR speed in sub-6 GHz bands can be modestly higher than 4G with a similar amount of spectrum and antennas. Adding LAA (Licensed Assisted Access) to a 4G configuration can add hundreds of megabits per second to the speed.
Until there is substantial field testing, 5G speeds can only be estimated. Qualcomm, the leading chipmaker, presented at Mobile World Congress a model that has been cited by many.The simulation predicts 490 Mbit/s median speeds for a common configuration of 3.5 GHz 5G Massive MIMO. It predicts a 1.4 Gbit/s median speed for a configuration using 28 GHz millimeter waves.
5G MOBILE INTERNET SPECIFICATIONS :-
1. BLAZING FAST INTERNET
2. 100 TIMES MORE CAPACITY THAN 4G
3. VERY LOW NETWORK LATENCY
4. CUSTOM MADE NETWORK SLICES
5. BETTER BATTERY LIFE FOR DEVICES
6. MULTIPLE SERVICES CAN RUN IN PARALLEL
5G MOBILE INTERNET STANDARDS :-
Initially, the term was defined by the ITU IMT-2020 standard, which required a theoretical peak download capacity of 20 gigabits.More recently, the industry standards group 3GPP has included any system using NR (New Radio) software. The 3GPP standards do not require any particular performance level.
ITU has divided 5G network services into three categories: enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB) or handsets, Ultra-Reliable Low-Latency Communications (URLLC), which includes industrial applications and autonomous vehicles, and Massive Machine Type Communications (MMTC) or sensors. Initial 5G deployments will focus on eMBB and fixed wireless, which makes use of many of the same capabilities as eMBB. 5G will use spectrum in the existing LTE frequency range (600 MHz to 6 GHz) and also in millimeter wave bands (24–86 GHz). 5G technologies have to satisfy ITU IMT-2020 requirements and/or 3GPP Release 15; while IMT-2020 specifies data rates of 20 Gbit/s, 5G speed in sub-6 GHz bands is similar to 4G.
5G MOBILE INTERNET Fast Facts :-
- 5G standard was completed in June.
- Qualcomm just made its mmWave antenna modules available to its smartphone partners, which means 5G-capable smartphones that use Qualcomm’s antennas will be able to use millimeter-wave frequencies. That means much faster speeds.
- The first 5G-capable phones will start to appear early next year. The first 5G devices will be mobile hotspots, which will roll out toward the end of 2018.
- Motorola is gunning to be the first handset maker with a 5G-ready phone, announcing the Moto Z3alongside a 5G Moto Mod. The $480 phone, which is exclusive to Verizon, will be out Aug. 16 but the Moto Mod won’t launch until 2019, when Verizon’s 5G network is actually functional.
- Not to be outdone, LG announced Aug. 14 that it plans to make the first true 5G phone, with 5G connectivity fully integrated instead of baked into an add-on accessory (ahem, Motorola). The device will be out in the first half of 2019 as a Sprint exclusive.

What do I need to get 5G?
In order to connect to 5G networks, you’ll need the correct hardware. Just like at the moment, you need a phone that supports 4G in order to connect to 4G networks. These will start to roll out in 2019.
The phone, tablet or any other device you use will need to have the right chipset inside, and Qualcomm has come up with the first commercial mobile 5G modem, known as the X50 and set to appear in phones from 2019
Qualcomm says the new chip will be capable of download speeds up to 5Gbps, 400 times faster than the current average 4G download speeds. Qualcomm looks like the leader currently, but things can change – especially when networks and handsets are still some way off.
It’s an interesting aside that Apple and Qualcomm are currently fighting, but Samsung and Intel are also heavily involved with 5G testing and hardware. Samsung has been working with US network Verizon on trials and the two are partnering on 5G tech for a commercial launch.
Intel has also been experimenting with 5G at the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics.

5G network rollout means a lot of work for the cellular service providers. Existing networks can work in conjunction with other wireless services, but, 5G utilizes a brand-new frequency and a whole lot of spectrum to deliver its magic.
However, even that is not a big problem. The real problem is that everything needs to be started from the scratch as current networks will be rendered useless when 5G starts operating. It’s as simple as you not wanting to switch or even use a 2G network in today’s 4G era. And, to make all this happen network operators would need to invest a lot in the new infrastructure.
Therefore, right now operators are trying not to invest all that money. And expecting a roll-out in the coming years is essentially a far-fetched dream, but, eventually, it will happen
