In India, users are waiting for 5G connectivity. Maybe you too are excited about this future Internet technology, but there are some challenges and drawbacks related to it.
Many users come to mind that after the arrival of 5G connectivity in India, how much the Internet world will change and what will be the impact on their lives.
At the moment, it is also important to know about the drawbacks associated with 5G.
Network is weaker than 4G
Users are getting good 4G connectivity in most areas but this is not the case with 5G.
In countries where 5G services are being provided, this network is also very weak.
Due to weak network, many users get the same speed as 4G even after 5G connectivity.
Apart from big cities, users are not getting 5G network in other places, so it is better to stick to 4G.
Speed changes rapidly
In most parts of the world where the 5G network is available, its speed is not the same.
With a 5G connection, hardly any user is getting more than 100Mbps speed, but it is still faster than 4G.
In many cases, users are getting speeds between 30Mbps to 50Mbps and so, there is no harm in staying on 4G network.
5G plans are very expensive
Although the cheapest 4G plans worldwide are available in India, but 5G plans will be very expensive compared to them.
Take the example of China, the cheapest 5G package is 129 yuan (Rs 1,457) per month. In this package, 30GB data and 500 minutes are available for calling.
In India too, 5G plans can be many times more expensive than cheap 4G plans, which means that most internet users will be out of reach.
The range of base stations decreases
5G network coverage has a direct impact on users experience and 5G base stations have much less coverage area than 3G or 4G.
The 3G base station covers an area of about 5 kilometers and the 4G base station 3 kilometers.
At the same time, a 5G base station has a coverage of only 300 meters. This means that to provide 5G services to users in the range of 1 km, more than three base stations will be required.
