Mobile phones and smartphones they can fully use the capabilities of this band may benefit from data transmission speeds much higher and lower latency. If the 3G era image and videos 4G, You could say that 5G concerns live broadcasts or streamings.

But the live broadcast is not all that appears with the 5G. Where once the download time a video was several minutes, with the new telecommunication technology we can expect to be done just in a few seconds.
