5G connection in Brazil: a near reality?

When the end of a year is approaching, the news usually comes up in the media for the next year. After all, companies want to prepare consumers for the most diverse technologies that will enter the market. One of the most anticipated by many people, especially in Brazil where it is not yet a reality, the 5G mobile connection. But in fact, what does that change in people's lives?

The first step is to understand what this type of acronym means. Basically, mobile internet goes through changes as technology evolves. Six years ago, we reported here 4G internet arrival in Brazilthat is, the fourth generation of mobile data internet connection, a type that is used for your smartphone to receive messages and open connection-dependent applications when you are not on a Wi-Fi network.

5G connection

Although the technology is already available, it should still take time for it to arrive in Brazil. Some places in the United States are receiving this kind of broadcast just now, and around here, there is still a discussion among operators about who will buy a 5G band. Still, in order to function at its best, these operators need to make a major investment in infrastructure, as what we have today is not enough to support this type of connection. This may make it take even longer to have the update in Brazil.

Let's go back to the beginning question: but in fact, what does that change in people's lives? Well, for some users very little. A large portion of the population uses mobile data only for simple data transfer, such as sending messages and updates on social networks. But for people who work on their smartphone, make money transfers or even play on their cell phones, a better internet would be a breakthrough.

One simple contact to do is: People use simpler, more limited tools while using mobile data, simply because the current structure doesn't make it possible to go much further.

An example is people who play on betting platforms. Many websites offer applications to their users, and a faster mobile connection like 5G would ensure better service delivery. This is a market that is constantly expanding, especially with promotions and welcome bonuses that the gambling sites offer. Better transfer of mobile data would be a very advantageous factor for people who profit through gaming, or even those dealing with volatile investments such as forex. That's because agility is a key factor in such markets. Connection failures can result in significant losses for users, and we are not just talking about "losing patience", but really about money.

Other updates and promises

However, it is important to note that even if 5G technology arrived quickly in Brazil, most telephone equipment would not support this connection. Yeah, bought a new phone that only supports 4G for Christmas … s sorry. So, from next year, new models that allow the use of 5G begin to reach the Brazilian market and you will need to give yourself a new device if you want to use the technology.

The major companies that make mobile phones are already moving ahead and running to develop a chip that is compatible with this data transmission profile and some of them guarantee that by mid-next year we will have new models. Just this year, Motorola was the first to launch a model that meets 5G. A curiosity is not a new model, but an accessory (such as a chip) that will be used to upgrade your equipment. Already 5G technology itself, optimists believe it can start working in 2020. wait and see. _____________________________________________________________________________ See any errors or would you like to add any suggestions to this article?
