Why 5G? 5G, the fifth generation of cellular mobile communications, is about more than phones. The fixed-wireless services with 5G enable wireless carriers to compete with traditional broadband suppliers like cable companies. This means 5G delivers higher data rates with greater device connectivity. By using a wide range of the frequency spectrum, 5G data rates span sub-6 GHz as well as millimeter-wave (>30 GHz) providing 10x higher speed than the previous generation mobile communications (>1 Gbps).
