While some of you in the country are still wallowing on 3G Network technology that is even lacking in many areas and not to mention 4G LTE, the best that telecom and network providers like MTN, Airtel, Glo and Etisalat are offering to their growing subscribers down here is 3.75G network.
And most times you need to locate and go close to MTN, Airtel, Glo or Etisalat cell tower before you can even access a strong 3.75G network.
On the contrary, American leading telephone provider AT&T and leading wireless telecom provider Verizon are already in partnership talks of delivering unprecedented, high-speed 5G network for even deeper broadband and cellular data penetration.
AT&T is planning to start a field test of 5G network in some part of the US before the end of this year.
If you ever thought that 4G LTE is all about speed, the 5G Network Technology is promising to be 100 times faster than 4G.
Maybe it will be best to term this upcoming project “Speed of light data technology”
Though no agreed standard has been set or adopted for global 5G technology, but AT&T is planning to work towards adaptable standard that can handle any future-set-standard.
Finally with 4G LTE already recorded as success since its inception, AT&T and Verizon also believe that the 5G network will in the same vein record future successes.
