Why is 5G a Big Deal?

5G is the latest leading-edge wireless technology. It is the fifth generation (5G) technology standard for broadband cellular networks and successor to 4G.

Essentially, it is an upgrade to current wireless networks.

5G is focused on three things: greater speed, lower latency, and more coverage. Together with embedded SIM technology, it will dramatically enhance mobile connectivity for individuals and industries.

How Does 5G work?

5G works on a spectrum made up of ‘bands’ that operate on different frequencies: Low Band, Mid Band, and High Band. The higher the frequency, the faster the speed.

Sub-6 GHz works on frequencies below 6GHz and mmWave works on frequencies above 24GHz and below 52GHz. In this case, mmWave 5G is much faster than sub-6 GHz 5G.

eSIM is Your Ticket to Mobile Freedom

An eSIM (embedded SIM) functions exactly like a traditional plastic SIM card except it’s less than half the size of a nano-SIM card and embedded into the device.

What makes eSIM so unique is its use of remote SIM provisioning, a specification set by GSMA that allows users to easily switch between networks without any restrictions.

If a provider supports eSIM you can activate a new profile through your device and connect to the network without having to visit a store or make any commitments.

You could travel from Spain to Turkey to the United Kingdom and not have to worry about getting a SIM card for each country or paying outrageous international roaming charges.
