5G will stand alone as a necessity for our future
The majority of 5G networks that are available today are non-standalone (NSA), which means they leverage existing 4G infrastructure. This is partly why they are often framed in the media as a luxury rather than a necessity. These networks produce faster speeds and lower latency than experienced on 4G networks and are designed to power enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB) use cases. This includes ultra-high definition video streaming and seamless cloud gaming, which are essentially enhanced versions of existing mobile technology.
