The 5G is believed to be 40 times faster and can transmit the data more efficiently compared to the 4G. With its increased transmission capacity and bandwidth, 5G can be advantageous for navigating the autonomous and semi-autonomous cars. It can help in broadcasting the information sent through the in-built car sensors on road conditions and suggest taking a new route. In short, for many upcoming technological applications, 5G would inevitably be the next-gen wireless connectivity that everyone is counting on.
