In the current era, the network system has been fast changing and bringing about alot of changes. Only a few years ago, the biggest thing about networks was 3G but now as time has passed and the technology has improve. 4G and 5G have come to as well. 4G is already being provided the companies while 5G is still in works. Currently 5G hasn’t been completely provided to the public for commercial use. The main reason being its still in the testing.

What is 5G Network?

5G networks are digital cellular networks, in which the service area covered by providers is divided into small geographical areas called cells. Analog signals representing sounds and images are digitized in the phone, converted by an analog to digital converter and transmitted as a stream of bits. All the 5G wireless devices in a cell communicate by radio waves with a local antenna array and low power automated transceiver (transmitter and receiver) in the cell, over frequency channels assigned by the transceiver from a common pool of frequencies, which are reused in geographically separated cells. The local antennas are connected with the telephone network and the Internet by a high bandwidth optical fiber or wireless backhaul connection. Like existing cellphones, when a user crosses from one cell to another, their mobile device is automatically “handed off” seamlessly to the antenna in the new cell. ( Via: Wikipedia)
