Why should you care about making 5G a part of your life today?
With better connectivity, better speeds, better latency, better reliability, 5G is the ‘Fifth Generation’ Technology Standard for cellular networks – and the much-anticipated successor to 4G.
Most current phones are connected to 4G, while some are still connected through 3G. The benefit of 5G is its greater bandwidth and increased upload and download speeds thanks to the higher-frequency radio waves that are used - which will take smartphones, computers and all other connected devices to the next level.
With 5G for business and gaming, there is virtually unlimited capacity at high speed, enabling immersive experiences through virtual reality, augmented reality and 3D technologies. At home, devices, lighting and appliances become increasingly ‘smart’ and advances in motion-tracking means more safety.
Add to this the most reliable data transfer speeds in SA with reduced latency, and movies, gaming, music uploads and downloads, and file sharing for home, office or learning are amplified, more enjoyable and more convenient.
MTN is rolling out 5G experiential kiosks in stores located in major shopping centres, including Sandton City, The Pavilion Shopping Centre and Gatemax in Umhlanga, with others to follow soon, where individuals can experience the benefits of 5G through a showcase of solutions like home-connected plug and play for Wi-Fi-enabled devices and sim offerings on 5G-enabled devices.
MTN is moving fast to ensure users are at the forefront of innovation and change. It’s time to ditch the glitch – switch to MTN’s 5G network today.
