What to Know About 5G Cell Tower Technology
The first generation of cellular technology (1G) were the analog car phones in the 1980’s. The second generation (2G) introduced in the 1990’s were defined by digital technology with greater audio clarity and at more affordable prices. The third generation (3G) introduced in 2002 had data capabilities, albeit slow. The fourth generation (4G) introduced in 2009 saw improved data throughput to handle the volumes of traffic data generated by the onset of Apple iPhones just two years prior. With every generational improvement in technology, wireless carriers were able to process more calls at lower costs and handle more data throughputs at higher speeds more reliably. Today, the fifth generation (5G) is experiencing over-hyped tech capabilities by the media, just as the last four generations before.
