The Great Impact: Fifth Generation Wireless Technology (5G)

[2 mins read]

Singapore is the first in the world to achieve full 5G coverage!

‘5G’ refers to the fifth-generation wireless technology, which is designed to deliver much faster internet speeds, ultra-low latency, and greater capacity. These benefits are set to have a significant impact on both consumers and businesses worldwide. No matter for work or leisure, here are some of the benefits we can expect from the latest 5G technology.

Faster Internet Speed

One of the primary benefits that many businesses have been ripping from the 5G technology is the faster internet speed. As shared in a report, mobile users in Singapore see nearly 50% faster speeds on 5G than on 4G. It was shared in the same report that Singapore’s 5G speeds are also 48.6% faster than Wifi speed.

With faster internet speed, businesses would be able to operate more efficiently, as tasks that previously took minutes will be completed in mere seconds. For instance, downloading large files or transferring data to remote locations will be faster and more reliable, resulting in higher productivity and efficiency.

Ultra-low Latency

Another advantage of the 5G technology is its ultra-low latency. This means that the time taken for a device to send and receive data will be significantly reduced, resulting in more responsive networks. This will be particularly useful for businesses that require real-time connectivity, such as those in the manufacturing or healthcare industries.

With the incorporation of 5G, machines and devices will then be able to communicate with each other almost instantly, making it possible to automate more processes, improve efficiency, and saves manpower.

Greater Capacity

5G technology also targets to provide greater capacity, enabling businesses to support a more significant number of devices on the networks. This is particularly beneficial for any businesses or households that rely heavily on IoT devices, which require a constant stable connection to the internet.

With 5G, businesses and smart homes can enjoy greater capacity and expect more reliable connections to support more IoT devices.


The impact of 5G will extend beyond just the technology. 5G is expected to drive innovation and create new business and job opportunities worldwide. It will also enable businesses to leverage new technologies, such as the adoption of augmented reality and virtual reality (AR/ VR), to provide better services and experiences to their clients.

The 5G technology is set to profoundly impact consumers and businesses worldwide. Its faster internet speeds, ultra-low latency, and greater capacity will enable businesses to operate more efficiently, automate work processes, and support a larger number of devices within the network. To fully leverage the advantage of 5G, it is essential to upgrade equipment so that it does not become a bottleneck.

5G is also expected to drive new innovation and create new business opportunities globally, making it an exciting time for businesses to leverage this technology!
