What the f*ck is 5G and how does it work?

What the f*ck is 5G, and how does it even work?

The world loves 4G phones, tablets and other gizmos and we take the tech for granted...but when that 4 grew up into the next-gen 5, it seems everyone perked up and started caring about phone networking tech. Journalists journaled, politicians, er, politicked, and tin-foil hat wearers reached for the extra-thick reinforced foil.

Why all this fuss? Believe it or not, 5G could change the way you live.

Because though it seems like smartphones are only good for tiktok and texting, 5G has the power to revolutionise how we interact with public spaces - from concerts and gigs to coffee shops, paving the way for foundational tech like virtual and augmented reality.

Kit Eaton

Kit was once told by a teacher that he would become a writer so, contrarily, he went off and qualified as a scientist, then worked in three or four completely different careers until he'd developed a serious enough coffee drinking habit and owned enough cats to finally pick up a pen. Now, with a brain full of eclectic ideas, he loves writing about technology, science, oh... all sorts of different things. Except author bios. He's never got the hang of writing those. One day he plans on going to Mars.
