A New Era for Mobile Connectivity
It seems like just yesterday that 4G was the holy grail of cellular technology and everyone was eagerly anticipating the new frontiers it would open up for mobile users. But as it goes in the tech space, there is always room for improvements and upgrades.
Those advancements have led to 5G, the fifth generation in the evolution of cellular networks.
And while the tech and telecommunications industries have truly outdone themselves with the launch of 5G wireless networks, it is the release of the 5G eSIM that truly marks the beginning of a technological revolution and opens up a world of infinite possibilities for companies and consumers.
What is the 5G eSIM and how does it work?
Before you can appreciate the benefits a 5G eSIM offers you need to understand what makes 5G so special and how it works with embedded SIM (eSIM) technology.
5G offers more than just unprecedented speed
The first murmur of 5G was heard back in 2011 when development of its core specifications began. By 2019 some of the world’s major networks began deploying 5G services. However, it has only been in 2020 that the new technology has really hit the mainstream.
While every fresh release brings a new wave of excitement, the anticipation for 5G rollout has been extraordinary because it comes with the promise of unparalleled speed, increased capacities, little to no delays, and greater connectivity for all devices – not just phones, laptops, and tablets.
For consumers, this means no more buffering and more stable, more secure connections; but for businesses, industries, and countries these enhanced capabilities have the potential to radically change the way they connect and operate.
5G is expected to change the world and technology as we know by enabling a whole new wave of innovation. Whether it is artificial intelligence and augmented reality or manufacturing and healthcare, 5G will allow us to do things we can’t even imagine right now.
5G meets eSIM
2020 signalled the release of the world’s first-ever 5G smartphone (the Samsung S20 in March) and saw even more carriers open their networks up to 5G service. However, it was the launch of the world’s first-ever 5G eSIM service that marked a profound new era in mobile connectivity.
The 5G eSIM was launched in July by the eSIM.net, a European-based Mobile Virtual Network Operator that is leading the way in eSIM data services in Europe and beyond.
What makes it such a breakthrough product is that it combines the speed and efficiency of 5G wireless networks and pioneering technology of eSIM with the affordable rates of Pay As You Go to create a product that offers users seamless connectivity and more cost-effective data charges.
The eSIM has already revolutionised the way people connect at home and abroad, but the Pay As You Go 5G eSIM is a massive leap forward in offering consumers true freedom and flexibility with the premium speeds of 5G networks and none of the hefty charges. It’s designed to be cost-effective and give you complete control of when, where, and how you connect.
