Why 5G has incredible potential for enhancing communication and tech experiences
YOU CAN MAKE A LIVING ON YOUTUBE CLAIMING BILL GATES INVENTED 5G TO SPREAD CORONAVIRUS
5G mobile phone technology is better than 4G in every key area. It can deliver much faster peak and sustained data transfer speeds, it’s much less susceptible to interference, and it enables you to connect many more devices simultaneously. That’s because it uses multiple frequencies and multiple antennas to get the best possible connections.
Apple’s investing heavily in Augmented Reality (AR) technology, for which 5G is an important component.
In January 2020, a Belgian newspaper started a conspiracy theory that would end up with people in England setting fire to phone towers. The Het Laatste Nieuws published an article pointing out that since 2019, several 5G mobile phone towers had been erected in Wuhan in China… coronavirus came from Wuhan, therefore the conclusion for some was that “5G causes coronavirus.”
You can now make a good living on YouTube telling people that Bill Gates invented 5G to spread coronavirus so that we’d all get microchipped and forced to run Windows XP as the operating system for our brains.
It’s a shame that 5G has become something some people fear. It’s a potentially world-changing communications technology that’s designed specifically for the demands of a society where everything is connected to everything else — and it all just works.
WHAT IS 5G ANYWAY?
