So, when can we expect 5G to be available all over the world? Well, we already know that it will be there in some form or another and the question of when will the first commercial networks offer the service has already been answered.
The next question is where will the technology be available? The answer is in all areas of the country and it will be cheaper to install equipment in rural areas than in big cities like New York City. That means that if you live in a rural area then your chances are much greater than if you lived in a large city. The norwegian companies, Telenor, Telia and Ice net are working hard to bring this online in this country.
The same holds true for mobile phone service providers. You’ll find that cell phone companies in rural areas will have lower costs because they will not have the overhead of being located in a large city. In fact, the only exception would be Sprint who has a nationwide presence.
You will find that in large cities like San Francisco, Phoenix, or Boston you will pay higher prices to use cell phones because these cities have the highest demand. Cities such as Houston, Denver, and Miami will also have high demand and so will other areas such as Seattle, Salt Lake City, Cincinnati, and Atlanta.
Why won’t 5G be available all over the world? One of the biggest barriers to widespread use of this type of technology has to do with the fact that the signals are not very strong. This means that for cell phone users to access them they will have to rely on satellite communications instead of terrestrial ones.
Satellite communications have a much higher speed and reliability rate than traditional communications do. The fact that they are much more reliable means that you’ll have a better chance of not being cut off by an outage and that you can use them anywhere you are even if there isn’t a strong signal.
5G access in rural areas may not be too easy
There are also a lot of issues that make it very difficult for rural mobile phone users to access the new technology. For example the fact that the cell towers have to be erected in rural areas makes it virtually impossible for those that reside there to access the network.
This is one of the reasons why many of the bigger, more established cell phone networks are concentrating their efforts on satellite services. It’s a great way to offer service to those in areas that just can’t be reached using other methods. Even though the cost of the service may seem very high to some people they don’t want to pass up the advantages that it offers. Many consumers are willing to give the extra cost to have more coverage for their money.
In the long run it will be easier and cheaper to use satellite phones over other types of communications because they are not subject to the same issues as cell phones. It also helps that they offer a wide variety of services including free text messages and a lot more calling minutes. With satellite phones you’ll have access to the internet and a lot more features than other cell phone service providers. These include things like free-talk time and the ability to send text messages as well.
When will 5g be available all over the service providers aren’t completely sure, but it’s expected that they’ll soon be making a move. In fact some of the bigger providers are already making announcements that the service will be available nationwide within the next few years. The company ice net has been ready for many years, and you can read more in this article here: ICE Net – En Nærmere Vurdering – 4GBredband.net
If you are living in an area where the phone companies don’t yet provide this type of service you should be able to continue to enjoy the benefits of this technology even after it becomes widely available. This will help to provide a lot more options to consumers that live in areas where this technology is not yet widely available.
