FAQs

What is 5G?

5G operates on a multi-band spectrum, with a peak speed of 20 Gbps and latency of just one millisecond.

Will 5G work indoors?

5G signals can be blocked by walls and other obstructions. Carriers are working on solutions to allow uninterrupted signals indoors.

Will we get 20 Gbps when 5G launches near me?

Most experts predict that in the early days of 5G, speeds will be more like 1.5 gigabytes per second. Which is still much faster than peak 4G speeds.

What is latency?

Latency is the response time it takes for a network to perform an action. For example, this is the time from which you press your game controller button to when your in-game character reacts.
