Learn about two wireless technology : 5G and Wi-Fi

For many years, two forms of wireless technology coexisted. Wi-Fi is a sort of local area network (LAN) that is mostly utilized inside, such as in a house or office.

People can use cellular networks, like major operators’ 4G LTE networks, both inside and outside over long distances. This is a type of wide-area network (WAN) called a “cellular network.” 

When it comes to speed, latency, and capacity, both 5G and Wi-Fi 6 are better than their predecessors. But what is the optimum use for each technology?

What Exactly Is 5G?

5G networks will be 50 times faster, 10 times less latency, and 1,000 times larger than 4G/LTE networks.

As a result, 5G will be able to connect more devices and send more data than ever before, which will lead to faster connection times and better user experiences for everyone.

You’ll need a 5G-capable smartphone if you wish to join the 5G network. The same thing happened with LTE.


What exactly is Wi-Fi?

Wi-Fi operates on unlicensed airwaves, which are open to the public but have a rather weak signal. 

It costs us money to get the internet to our door, so we pay an internet service provider (ISP) to do that. We then use a router to get Wi-Fi all over our house.

Using the same Wi-Fi frequency range as your neighbors might be inconvenient, especially if you reside in a low-bandwidth location.

Wi-Fi is divided into two types: 2.4GHz and 5GHz. If you want to talk about speed, the 2.4GHz band has a lower theoretical peak speed than the 5GHz band, which has faster speeds but can’t get through walls.
