For quite some time, we’ve been using 4G, or 4th generation mobile networks.

But that’s all set to change – and fast.

In fact, over the next few months, companies will begin to roll out 5G, or 5th generation mobile networks. The goal is to provide quicker Internet speeds for users. The other objective of 5G is to help usher in the next wave of human-technology interaction, such as with the Internet of Things (IoT) and autonomous cars.

4G has a download speed of 100 megabits per second.

But that’s nothing compared to the 10,000 megabits per second that 5G can handle. That’s 100 times faster than 4G, and would be under significant demand.

And get this.

By 2035, about $12.3 trillion worth of goods and services will be enabled by 5G networks, and the rollout of 5G will add approximately $3 trillion to the worldwide GDP.
