5G speeds will start at around 20% faster than the fastest 4G networks available today.
The 5G standard redefines ethernet to allow mass device connectivity. The result is less congestion and a more reliable network, which will add to the perception of a faster experience.
In terms of raw numbers, the max. bandwidth depends on the radio wavelength. Networks in the 3.5 GHz range will deliver 490 Mb/s, while 28 GHz networks will deliver around 1.4 Gb/s. The theoretical maximum transfer rate specified by the 5G standard is 20 Gb/s.
