Mobile networks and its coverage are constantly improving - with different countries racing to become the first nation to fully adapt "5G" technology. In the Philippines, top telecommunication networks have also been innovating to ensure that its subscribers will be among the first to use 5G technology in highly populated areas in the country—later on, nationwide.

Functionally, 5G is the fifth generation of mobile wireless communications that promises three major benefits – faster speeds, higher bandwidth, and lower latency – over its predecessor, 4G. More than just internet speed, 5G users can also have an improved smartphone experience with lesser lags and delays.

Here are some examples of what 5G users can expect:

1. Send and receive information in an instant 

It allows users to send and receive text messages faster, make video calls to loved ones smoothly, transfer and download big files with almost no waiting time.

2. Buffer-free streaming

5G users can now stream high quality videos even in crowded places without worrying how many devices are trying to connect to a single network. With its larger bandwidth capacity, users can seamlessly load video with ease, even with low-quality connection.

3. Lag-free gaming

5G offers gamers an interactive and immersive mobile gaming experience through its innovations such as remote real-time gaming, online multiplayer mobile gaming, as well as cloud-based gaming.

4. Increase Internet-of-Things (loT) devices

The speed, bandwidth, and low latency offered by 5G help in managing large numbers of IoT devices effectively. Users can expect a slew of innovative new devices, giving users the power to be more connected than before. 

5. Benefit from safe and reliable usage

With 5G still in its initial stages of implementation in many countries, there may be concerns among users on its safety and reliability, with the biggest issue being whether 5G could cause certain health issues due to radiation. The International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) reiterates that 5G does not pose a health risk to users. 

Talking about its benefits, when put together: the speed, low latency, and high bandwidth capacity that come together with 5G results to mobile users having a reliable network.
