What is 5G - Definition?

5G is the 5th generation mobile network designed to connect everyone and everything virtually. It is the successor to 4G and promises better mobile data speed than predecessor. It can offer up to 20Gb/s at peak while 4G was capable to offer peak download speeds of 300Mbit/s. That means, your 1080p movie can be downloaded in less than 20 seconds.

Even if 5G network is not yet ready, most of the flagship and upper-midrange phones now support 5G network. India is still not ready for 5G network and I don't see the network coming before 2022.
