You know 5G the next generation mobile data which is high speed,is already live in handful of areas in the US as well as other parts of the world. Including countries like the UK and Australia. But we can see this networks rolls out many confusion and misconception around the new technology remain.
As 5G will have impact on many people's lives all around the world, this is not completely surprising that there are so many understandably a lot of questions being asked about it.
It is predicted that by 2023 there will be 1 billion 5G customers. 5G Networks help people connect to a super fast mobile network, but also many other industries will benefit from the faster connectivity. Like self-driving cars, drones and the internet of things.
We are debunking a few 5G myths to learn more about 5G.

But Will My Current Phone Be Faster?
4G replaced 3G when it lunched but 5G will not replace LTE in that way.
As 5G networks roll out 4G phones may see a boost in speed. This will happen for two reasons:
Dynamic spectrum sharing and carrier aggregation.

This 5G era may make the gap even further.
