Everyone is already talking about it and yet, it is not clear to everyone of his arrival on French territory. The 5g technology that everyone is looking forward to. But then when will it be available in France?
What exactly is 5G?
Everyone already knows the 4G network and it was already madness, when we could see on his 4G phone, imagine what it will look like with 5G. We don’t see it, but all the operators are already working on this site, to be able to be ready when the green light is given for the launch of 5G on French territory.
An accelerated communication speed, it will go from 1 to 10 Gbps. For fans of games and series, downloads will also be super fast, it will be possible in just a few seconds.
A deployment that can be compared to an endless construction site
Everyone is very impatient to see this new technology appear at the top of their small phone screen, but we will have to take our troubles patiently, before splurging by buying the latest 5G smartphone.
It is not simply national, but indeed a global deployment, which is being prepared, everyone wants to be the first and yet everyone must wait for the authorization.
It was in 2017 that Europe implemented its Roadmap. To make it quick, operators will be allocated in the course of this year 2019, the 5G bandwidths of 3.4 – 3.8 GHz and 24.25 – 27.5 GHz. But don’t worry from 2020, at least one city in each member state will be able to benefit from 5G.
By 2025, at the latest, 5G will be deployed in major cities, at least the infrastructure will have to be ready. According to the organization Arcep (Regulatory Authority for Electronic Communications and Posts), the organization which keeps an eye on this project, we are not quite ready yet. It is in 2020 that a real commercial development to begin.
5G compatible smartphones soon on the market
Beware of tempting offers, offering 5G compatible smartphones, this is probably not yet the case, knowing that it is from 2019 that operators in France will be able to take advantage of the bandwidths.
The prices are quite high, it is a shame to fall for 5G smartphones in 2019, when it is not yet possible to take advantage of this technology. And yet many brands are already ready to sell you the best 5G smartphone on the market, Apple iPhone 5G, Huawei 5G smartphones, LG 5G smartphones, Samsung 5G and all the other brands are also starting to launch.
Ambition, future, new technology, it’s hard work, a work in progress. And yet for the most impatient, we will have to be very patient, because it is not tomorrow that we will be able to boast of having the 5G network on our smartphones.
