Q & A: 4G LTE and 5G Data Plans

Q: What’s the difference between 4G LTE and 5G

A: Speed is the defining difference. 5G is by far faster than 4G LTE. In fact, 5G can deliver speeds as fast as Wi-Fi.

Q: What are the latency ranges between 4G and 5G?

A: With 5G you typically get low latency of under 5 milliseconds. 4G offers a range from 60 ms to 98 ms. A lower latency speed gives you faster download speeds.

Q: How does 5G work?

A: 5G are built in quite separate ways, using multiple bands of wavelength spectrum that readily carry through the air:  low band, mid band and high band.

Q:  4G LTE and 5G: what makes 5G the future?

 A: 5G stands out as the winner because it is the net stage in what many view as a network evolution. You can enjoy speeds that are 10x with 5G versus 4G LTE

Q:  Aren’t LTE and 5G the same?

 A: No, 5G is a step beyond LTE in mobile technology and will completely replace all 4G LTE eventually. 5G is faster and more responsive.

Q:  Will a 4G device work with a 5G network?

A: No, you must have a 5G capable device to fully access a 5G network. An older 4G device that does not have 5G radios cannot connect to 5G networks.

Q: When will 4G LTE be phased out?

A: 5G is not going to quickly replace 4G. The two will coexist and continue working together. A 5G device can also use a 4G LTE service.

Q: What is the advantage of 5G over 4G LTE?
 A: 5G provides far faster speed, greater capacity, and lower latency then a 4G LTE network. 5G is considered the fastest and most impressive technology available. You’ll enjoy quicker downloads will dramatically impact your work and play.
