(RepublicanReport.com) – The technological arms race continued to pick up speed in 2020, and it doesn’t look like it’s slowing down anytime soon. Our computers and smartphones are getting more sophisticated all the time. A large part of this is the speed with which devices can process and communicate information; this is where 5G becomes relevant.
As the name suggests, 5G is the fifth generation of mobile networks. It will offer a significant improvement on the processing speeds offered by 4G. This extra speed will allow for greater connectivity between devices, especially smaller machines like smartwatches. It means users will be able to perform data-heavy tasks on the move with a far lower risk of glitching or suboptimal performance. It’ll also have positive ramifications for autonomous vehicles and the Internet of Things (IoT).
Some people have concerns about the directions technology is taking us, and these are valid up to a point. However, when you look at the number of jobs 5G expansion will create and the benefits it will offer our economy as a whole, it’s difficult to argue against it.
