5G network will create a new era for watching movies or videos online. It is no doubt that 5G internet can bring many benefits to us with a far faster download speed.
The Advantages of 5G Network
With the development of technology, people are increasingly demanding better mobile networks. Although mobile WiFi has emerged, there are still many problems, such as coverage is not anywhere, the current mobile traffic is expensive, the speed is also unstable sometimes. So everyone is looking forward to the arrival of 5G.
Fast Download Speed
Comparing with 4G network, the most intuitive change of 5G is the speed. The speed of 5G network can reach up to 10G/s, 10 times faster than 4G. In this situation, you can download a high-definition movie in a few seconds. People don’t have to worry about it. The problem of network speed is gone.
In the UK, the study conducted by Ofcom at the end of 2017 showed that the average download speed of YouTube by the four operators was only between 1.3 Mbps and 2.9 Mbps.
Short Response Time
Latency is the time it takes for the network to respond to a request, for example, you might try to play a song or video or load a website. It must respond before it starts loading, which can result in a slight but noticeable delay.
On 3G, these response times are typically about 120 milliseconds while they are less than half, about 15 to 60 milliseconds, on 4G network. The theory holds that the 5G response time will be reduced to only 1 millisecond, which would be completely undetectable.
Watch Movie with 5G Network
According to the operators, 1Gbps can download 25 songs in one second, download TV programs in 3 seconds, and play HD movies in less than 36 seconds.
These rates are currently available through their fixed GigaPower ultra-fast Internet service and have shown that the same rate can be achieved with 5G network.
After Qualcomm announced the launch of its new X50 5G modem in October 2016, it can download 1.5GB of movies in 2 to 3 seconds, while 1Gbps takes 10 to 15 seconds.
In the future, the transmission rate of 5G network can reach 10Gbps, which means that mobile phone users can download a high quality movie in less than one second.
If the viewing of online movies was limited by the wireless network and transmission speed, then the 5G era has completely removed this threshold.
Coupled with the continuous optimization and innovation of large-screen mobile phones and mobile terminals, online dramas and movies can say that there are no restrictions on network speed and terminals.
