The promise of a high-performance Internet connection
Ultimately, 5G networks will transmit data up to 100 times faster, for example to download large files or medical records, movies and video games.
They will simultaneously connect with each other about 1 million devices per km2, which will stimulate the offer of connected objects for online video games, virtual and augmented reality or smart homes.
They will reduce latency to close to zero, lowering it to about 1 millisecond, to allow instant and smooth connections as well as remote responses in real time.
