I went on CapeTalk for Tech Tuesday on the Breakfast with Refilwe Moloto show to speak about 5G. It’s a consumer friendly discussion about the facts only; conspiracy theories don’t deserve anymore airtime.
It will be exceptionally fast. At least ten times faster than 4G.
It’s gonna allow for new technologies like self-driving cars, cloud-gaming, virtual reality games, but everything will be in real-time, so there won’t be that delay and that lag.
Think about drones…it can be used to control crops on a farm, it can be used to deliver supplies in rural areas, online shopping deliveries.
Listen to the podcast here:
The conversation initially stemmed from my blog post about testing 5G on Vodacom using the first 5G handset to launch in South Africa, the LG V50 ThinQ, which you can read here: https://www.nafisa.co.za/testing-5g-on-the-lg-v50-thinq/
