What are the differences between 3G, 4G, 5G?

The G in 2G, 3G, 4G, 5G means Generation. The difference between 3G, 4G, and 5G networks lies primarily in their speed, capacity, and latency. 



3G (or third generation)

3G networks were introduced in the early 2000s, providing faster data transmission speeds than 2G networks. While these networks are still used today, they have slower download and upload speeds compared to newer technologies.


4G (or fourth generation)

4G networks provide even faster internet speeds than 3G, as well as improved reliability and capacity. 4G networks can deliver peak speeds of up to 1 gigabit per second (Gbps), making it ideal for streaming high-quality video and downloading large files quickly.


5G (or fifth generation)

5G networks represent the latest and most advanced technology currently available. With incredibly fast download and upload speeds and reduced latency, 5G networks can provide speeds up to 100 times faster than 4G. This makes them ideal for applications such as autonomous vehicles, virtual reality experiences, and remote robotic control.


In summary, while all three generations of networks provide reliable connectivity, the speed, capacity, and latency will improve with each upgrade. Therefore, as we move forward, we can expect to see even faster and more reliable connectivity with each new generation of technology.

At WiFicandy we work with high performance equipment which enables the combination of all three network generations to offer most reliable and fast connectivity at your convenience.
