5G Mobile Phone Networks

Why 5G is needed and the potential impact it will have.

This year sees the launch in the UK of the next generation of mobile network and phone, the so-called 5G. Our journey to this point began in the 1980s when the first generation of analogue mobile phones was introduced.

The move to 2G in the 1990s heralded improved communications and the introduction of data services. Third generation subsequently brought better Internet connections and then 4G offered highspeed broadband connectivity.

The talk will explore why 5G is needed, how it differs from 4G, which new applications and services will become available and the potential impact it will have on our lives.
